Was driving home from a vacation about 30 mi East of pa/oh border. A/C suddenly went from cold to hot. We turned off A/C. when we took to local mechanic, metal shards throughout A/C system from compressor, had to replace entire A/C system at a cost of over $1700. Want to add that dealer has been very nice about purchase and problems - they explained that car is out of warranty.
