The fans are disabled whenever you drive over 30-35 mph, more or less. If the engine temp gauge showed little 'over heat' condition, I'd suspect that the airflow over the condenser was adequate. If...

Likely the fuel pump is not getting the signal from the computer that the engine has started, so it does not enable the pump. The system will 'prime' for 3-5 seconds when the key is first turned...

If you do not get bit with the 'new car bug', and will keep your vehicle for a good long time, then purchasing new is a good thing in that you know the previous history- none. You get to break it...

Be sure the a/c clutch is working before you decide to replace a bunch of parts. The center section of the a/c clutch/pulley should be stationary when the a/c is not selected.
