My ac comp went south. The difference between reman, and new is $60.. They both come with a 1 year warranty. Should I go for the new, thanks Jim.

With same warranty it is a tough call , but if money isn't real tight I would go new. You have a little less chance of a bad one. As much fun as they are to put on you don't want to do it twice.

Go with the new unit. Being in the parts business, I can assure you that the defect rate is traditionally less with a new unit. Be sure to replace with the same manufacturer as OE. It does not cost any more $$$. Most aftermarket suppliers carry matching original equipment product without having to go to the dealer. For GM look for a Delphi unit. Watch out for cheap offshore knockoffs.

Good luck
