I leased this car in January of 1997. This year I purchased the car. Before the warranty expired, I took my car in for an oil change and asked that the car be given an overall inspection because of the pending expiration of the warranty. I was told everything was ok. The weather began to warn up and notice something was wrong with the air.I took the car back to the dealer and was told that the compessor was gone. I called General Motors in detroit. They told me I would have to work something out with the dealer. I got a second opinion from grammers automotive repair (901-373-3072) they told me the compressor had to be replaced. They suggested that I go back to the dealer. That I would probably get a better replacement price from them. Cadillac of memphis replaced the compressor for $ $393.89. After they replaced the compressor, I have found three other owners of Cadillac will fail compressors that occurred shortly after the warranties had expired. I contacted delphi automotive systems, the maker of the compressor. The letter was sent certified in June. I don't understand why these compressors are failing in cars in which the warranties have just expired. I wad told at cadilac of memphis that things like this just happen. I was told that some stange things go on in that service department at Cadillac of memphis. They are the only Cadillac dealer in this area. Your attention regarding this matter is greatly appreciated.
