For the second summer in a row, I am stuck without an AC in my car. Last summer, I went through the same thing. I live in a region that gets very hot, In many cases, getting into a car without an air conditioner is something that most people in this region would refuse to do. Having a car without AC is possibly worse than having a car without a radio. In my opinion, having a car without AC is possibly one of the worst things that could happen to a girl in this region! My new job requires me to drive around and I refuse to show up to meet clients hot and sweaty. That is why I took my car into the auto AC repair shop this evening. I drove up to the shop and noticed there were several cars parked outside already, probably waiting for maintenance. I called a friend to come pick me up from the automotive AC repair shop and she agreed. When I went inside, the AC technician told me it would be hard to diagnose the problem without doing an AC inspection. I agreed but asked him to please call me if any of the repairs would run over $100. I need to be careful with how much money I am willing to put into an older car just to repair the AC when I could just buy a new car with a working AC. After a few hours, I got a call that my car was ready to pick up and the AC was blowing cold air! I was so excited and the repair only cost around $50.
