Is it common for a compressor to go bad after just 5 years-forester, suburu 2011
Yep, and not just Subaru, Fords, GM's, everyone, it just happens, no reason for it, I've even seen them go bad during basic warranty, and that's under 12000 miles. But I have also seen them go for years without any problems.
21st Century cars do this, yeah- they gave up making cars that last for decades- let us mourn their passage- they will never be the same again-
Is it the compressor or is the clutch not engaging? Check YouTube for a small wiring adjustment trick if that's the case?
