Hi I have a Honda CRV 2001 and the air conditioner just went out. This is the second time this has happened since I bought it brand new. I found out that I need a compressor etc and that there was also a large hole as well. It will cost me about $1,500 at the mechanic I go to. I will not take it to the Honda dealer as it will cost me so much more. I couldn't believe that other people are having this same problem. I love this car but not this problem and doubt I will get another CRV with this happening. Thanks and I'm sorry about the others out there having the same problem. Lorray

Do a search for 100%, or $200 and you should find some.

You should definitely call American Honda about this; especially since it's the second time and you bought it brand new!

Hello, thanks for your reply. I am going to do that. Especially since it is the second time. Have a good day. Lorray
#1138 of 2218 Will defrost/heater continue to function?
Jun 21, 2009 (7:17 am)
Hi folks, can anyone tell me if after the compressor fails the defrost and heater will continue to work? I have a 2004 CRV and concerned about this. Considering trading it in before it fails. Thanks!

Thought I had read about this problem before, but can now speak from personal experience. Wife's '02 CR-V EX has been meticulously maintained, but went from excellent cooling yesterday to not functioning at all this morning. Unfortunately we were on vacation in Panama City, FL, and had a 5+ hour trip home today, with temps upwards of 98 degrees F. We have ~72K miles on the car. Will be calling our dealer tomorrow morning, looking for assistance. Daughter has a new '09 CR-V, and we've bought a couple of Accords, so we're going to play the loyalty card. Will post dealer response and estimated costs when available.

I just checked the VIN on my CRV and find it begins with a "J". I might add that I have owned 8 Hondas and this is the only one we've had serious a/c problems with.

Mine also begins with the 'J.' (Reference #1139)

The same happened to me. I have a 2004 CRV. My dealer contacted Honda for me and got the price down from $5000 to $2900. The stupid car only worth about $8000 - $9000 now and I have to spend $2900 to fix it.
This is really a common issue with CRV, the dealer diagnosed my car said they see this happen very often. In fact they just negotiated a deal for a customer the day before, and there's another case on the same day I took my car in.
My family owns 3 Honda (civic, accord and my CRV). Very bad experience this time, guess I'll go with Toyota next time.

guess I'll go with Toyota next time.
And they have engine sludge issue...
I guess, that leaves you with Buick then...
