    The A/C compressor in a friend's car died. The mechanic said the whole
    system would have to be replaced. He said that a reconditioned compressor
    could not be used because the 86 - 89 models had problems, and that a newer
    system would have to be installed. The estimate is $1300. Is this B.S?

    I don't know Honda to produce crappy equipment. Sounds like he's trying to
    sell you an aftermarket or jack you. Try this website for a new compressor:

    If you don't have the Nippon Denso compressor then he is right. The Keihin
    brand is junk. But you don't need "a whole new system". The ND conversion
    kit consists of the compressor, the bracket, both hoses, the belt, and a
    receiver dryer.
