    Nice ride! I'd never guess it had that many miles. Looks to be very well taken care of.

    If it's got automatic temperature control on it there are three actuators behind the dash when you want to replace all three of the same time and the airbag has to come out and that's expensive. I had all mine replace with Factory units on a 2004 Yukon and they started failing again after 1 year.

    Ya I know its $$$. Luckily I have a guy who works at GM dealer and does side jobs and charges me only $25-$50 an hour on labor


    But luckily the air blows normal and all that auto temp works. needs new compressor switch or a full A/C exchange he said.

    The price is right but the mileage is very high I would run away. You're talking about buying a 16-year-old vehicle it's pretty well used up

    You’re a bit late to this thread. He already bought the vehicle.

    I am glad that the OP bought it. Since the OP's friend works at a GM dealership and is only 25 bucks per hour plus he can probably get all the parts for basically free that makes it a super smart move long term. Good Job OP and Great Deal for you. Under these conditions it might be advisable to get a couple more in the driveway if you can find them in mint condition LOL.

    Unless he did a leak down test, there’s no such thing as a quick AC charge. Good luck with your new ride, hopefully you won’t have any surprises in the near future.
