It cost me $ 620 with labor before tax for Camry 95 4 Cyl. Could I
have found a better bargin? Probably shouls have gotten a
remanufactured one on the Internet.
Thanks,
Serge

Dunno...I don't work on car a/c's, but offhand, I would think
that price is probably fair if the guy knew what he is doing.
Sometimes bargains ain't what they are cracked up to be
when it comes to a/c systems. Changing a compressor
and all it entails is a good bit of work.

Obviously, the labor portion of your bill depends on prevailing labor rates
in your area, but the price sounds pretty reasonable to me.
