    Don't take it as a insult. I understand why you did what you did and we always want to help. I've been burned too.

I worked for the Bureau of Automotive Repair in California and saw lots of shops that were morally right loose in court. His mistake was going outside the box and trying to make the repair more affordable. He put his shop at risk and is now being sued. That's why when you take your car to the shop they insist on doing the repair correctly while the shade tree guy puts one part on and leaves the questionable stuff in service. The repair shop quotes the job to repair everything related because they know there is always someone like this lady that will blame them no mater how well you explain the possible failure.
      Going OEM rather than aftermarket on something like an AC condensor is the right way everytime. They work much better and last much longer. With aftermarket an evac and charge comes much more often. Where it went wrong is he didn't return and replace when it first leaked. If it's a comeback for a leak that condensor shouldve been returned. Used OEM is always better on older cars than aftermarket. Especially in autobody. Aftermarket fenders/bumpers/lights etc never fit right.

        I would just tell my customers that if they want used parts, they need to get it themselves and put it on themselves

              BS. My car was hit in the back in a parking lot. All that was damaged was my tail light assembly. Insurance got the replacement from the dealer. My car is a 2010.

                  So much for "in season mode". I guess we're all allowed now to just throw up topics about anything on the main page.

                          It's not always the case with minor damage like a taillight. Depends on the car too, like only OEM for range rovers, Porsche etc. They keep costs low by going used/aftermarket.

                              I own a automotive business. We put a used A/C compressor for 301.30 on a clients vehicle. We explained that it was a used part and was 15 years old. It was not a wise Idea because of the age. Well it leaked , so we warranted it. She returned a few weeks later and it was leaking again. She brought it to another shop had them replace it with a new Compressor and then filed a suit against up for 1500.oo dollars because she is claiming the parts that we used was defective. Now I as a business owner have to pay this because I would win if we go to court but it would cost me around 5k to do so.

                              This is one ****ed up world we live in. SO here is my advise.

                              If you don't like something you have purchased. Sue the people for it because you're not happy with it. Just make the suit less then the court cost and you will win.

                              Go figure it was a ****ing KC fan too.

                              Anyways
                              Thanks for listening and Mother ****er.
                              Did she insist on buying that compressor?
                              This is on you. The customer is not a mechanic.
                              You didn't have a business offering her that compressor. It could've also been siezed up. Also, upon installation it was your job to make sure it didn't have any leaks. You know better, bud!
