I would say "no". The 10 year estimate (+/-) is about right for any car before the compressor wears out, a seal randomly leaks or the condenser corrodes through the tubing (especially areas with road salt). I'm going to jinx ourselves, but our 2005 325Ci AC is still working and it is 17 years old but it was garage kept and only has 63k miles. 2009 VW Tiguan 167k miles, 13 years before the compressor seized.1995 Ford Probe GT 105k miles and 16 years before the compressor failed and some seal dumped all of the compressor oil out. 2000 BMW M Roadster, this one had a weak AC system when I picked it up (used). It only lasted 10 years and about 85k milesAc a common issue on these cars?
