Loud AC Compressor

I havenít seen any threads about this but I canít be the only one. I have had 2 05 GTOs and drove 2 more and all had loud AC Compressor. Is this normal? I have seen cars that the sound was just transferred because of bad hose/line routing. I took back to dealer they agreed and said it was fixed, Invoice says remove Compressor/Accumulator measure oil and add. Thatís funny because there is no Accumulator on my car only Receiver Drier. There is no change any time AC is on Compressor wines, rattles when first turned on. Is there a fix for this, sounds like old worn out car?

Mine does it on initial turn on - it seems to quiet down after a minute or two.
The A/C works great it just makes a kind of growel noise. I got about 16,000 on her now. Last year I didn't have any noise from it.

I concur!! Mine has the same problem when turning the AC on. It goes away after a minute. I am glad to see that I am not the only one, but it does concern me.

Mine is an 04, but I don't hear or feel any extra noise or vibration when the AC is turned on. In fact, it's the only car I've owned that doesn't do that. I have a 99 Jimmy that does have a loud, rattly compressor, and it is aggravating.

Mine reminds me of my 89 Cavalier wagon when it got to the 280,000 mile mark. But like everyone else it goes away after a minute or two. the dealer says it is fine, and it is very cold. On 95-100 degree days with the sun beating down the car is cool in 20-25 minutes, even with Florida humidity. I'm glad I have a 70k waranty though.

Mine too. Its like you can hear the compressor pumping the gas. Once the pressure builds the noise goes away.
