I went to my regular mechanic, and he said that I need a new ac compressor. He is charging me $1200 and that seems astronomical! How much does the average car ac compressor replacement cost?

With summer around the corner, I am sure you will want your car a/c in working condition! The average cost to replace a car a/c compressor is around $1,100—your mechanic isn’t far off the mark.
The cost of parts and labor can vary greatly depending on where you live. On average, the labor cost can run between $160 and $200, with the parts costing between $650 and $840. Once we account for any taxes and fees, your quote seems fair.
Don’t hesitate to get quotes from several shops. $1,200 is still a lot of money and if you can get quality work done cheaper somewhere else, go for it!
