Default 2009 CRV AC Problems

My wife just had an AC relay replaced at a Honda Dealership. The AC was working fine, except it wouldn't come on for like 20 minutes. Its all fixed now. The dealership told her she'd need a new compressor. Is that bogus or what?

Thanks. Great to be here. I think that the tech was just trying to up-sell her. I'm all for preventive maintenance, but the system works great when its on, and now that the relay is fixed, its working great. I think before she pours $1K into a 2009 for a new compressor, she's just going to get a newer used CRV. Sometimes I tackle these repairs myself with used parts from salvage and an afternoon to kill, but this looks WAY over my head.
