A repair shop says that the AC compressor broke and that it'll be $700-800 to fix.
I could easily do without the AC since I don't use it much anyways due to weird health reasons.
The question is, is this going to somehow going to "break" other components of the car if I fail to get this repaired.
The vibe I get from repair places is that they could lie to common folk, like me, who never heard what an "AC compressor" is when in reality all they need to do is tighten a screw and fixes the car.
Hell, they could break things on their own just so that they can "fix" it for you at $100 an hour labor..
Not sure if this is the best place to ask either.
This is a 2012 Honda Civic and there's no dash icon that have lit up.
And the only info I have is that it just stopped working and throws air but it's not cool air.
