I get it that the compressor will fail for these 2014 models, but no one seems to say anything about the compressor needing replacement as well - removing that would knock off 1,000 from the bill.
... assume you mean "no one seems to say anything about the condenser
Many AC techs will replace the condenser to be safe as well. The condenser has very small channels which will trap and collect any debris, like metal filings shed by a failing AC compressor. What they do, is remove both the old condenser and old AC compressor, flush the system to remove any possible debris (which if left in the system could damage the new AC compressor), install the new AC compressor and a new condenser that they know is 'clean', then recharge the system. It is almost impossible to flush clean a condenser that has trapped stuff, so it gets replaced. Replacing a $150 condenser, to protect a $1500 AC compressor is well worth it.
