A year after the aircon is not working again.
Sounds like a lame excuse from the dealer. Any other nearby dealer you can get a 2nd opinion on?Hi I think I have posted here a year ago about the same issue not bring cold. Being worried not covered by warranty turns out it was last year. Then again this month April 2022 the same issue came back and thank goodness it was still covered. Last time they said there was a leak and they fixed it (Toyota Sherwood park dealership) and top up the refrigerant. Now when I sent it for repair they said that they had to order a condenser to replace it and will have the parts in 5 days and I had to go back. Why is this having this issue this a new car. 2019. But I mean this should at least last long enough before I should be seeing a repair.
Condensers don't fail regularly. The tubes you speak of don't expand and shrink. They're rigid and made out of aluminum for heat transfer so the refrigerant in vapor form condenses back into a liquid. The only place of expansion is at the expansion valve/orifice tube that feeds into the evaporator coil under pressure from the compressor.The condenser fails regularly, including the refrigerant can leak out through the tubes. Because of temperature differences, the tubes expand and shrink. The air conditioner can often break down. It needs care and supervision.
