I have a loud noise that seems to be affiliated with my air conditioner. It happens more and more frequently. Initially only on very hot days and when the vehicle was slowing down, stopped or accelerating. As time progressed, more and more frequently, and now even happens on cool days (65 degrees). It is shocking, almost sounds like the first sound of a siren. I've had people my car when this has happened, it is embarassing. They look around thinking there is a cop, but no, it is just my car. Does anyone have any suggestions. I took it to the dealer and they thought my AC might be going out. This is an expensive fix if it is the AC unit, and the AC unit should not go out. Have had several cars, much older than 7 years old, and never had an AC unit go out, much less any issue with it. Any advise or similiar experiences? No longer under warranty, but the AC issue seems to be a known problem.
