No, you are a blue eyed goddess. Cause a 6-foot person driving a mini/cute SUV, trying hard to be manly looking would look like a goddess (not referring to other tall persons driving this car, this is just for him and his attitude). You can add on all the gadgets you want to your 2005, they won't add to your manliness or lack of it. We have automatics and a manual and I learned to drive a stick shift years before an automatic, each type has its pros and cons. It doesn't make me feel less of a man when I drive an auto. Only persons with inferiority issues should feel that way.
Sorry, just can't resist, this is the 2nd time I've seen this from the goddess... Now back to the compressor issues...
Actually, I really wanted the HR-V, but Honda never brought it here. A Civic with AWD would have been fine with me. I don't need a large vehicle to compensate for anything. Before moving to Buffalo I drove a number Civics and was very comfortable.
CR-V is the smallest of the vehicles in Honda line up that offers AWD. Had SHAWD beed avaialable on the TSX, I would have gladly bought that.
I have no inferiority complex, nor have the need to compensate for anything. I just see things as they are, without being politically correct.
Automatic were invented to attract the female buyers, and any male, short of a cripple, driving an automatic is essentially equal to wearing a dress. But, we don't judge in this country, everyone is entitled to do whatever makes them happy.
I also ride, and with the advent of automatic motorcycles, no man with a automatic bike will be allowed no where near a motorcycle rally, or any motorcycle oriented gathering. Only women are allowed in clubs with automatic bikes. But, most choose not to.

Sorry, didn't mean it that way. Should have said "Adonis"!
Actually, it's Apollo.

Not exactly. The average elevation of Florida is 98.43 feet - above sea level.
Not according to the GPS in the car, and it is pretty accurate when it comes to elevations.
Driving the length of I-95 only bridges and some patches were above the sea level, everything else was either at or below sea level.

So, what's your point? The complaints here are about a car part prematurely breaking down. If your heater broke down in the winter and your car only has below-average miles, won't you raise the issue with Honda?
If it is out of warranty, I would call Honda corporate and see what they can do. If nothing, I would suck it up and replace it my self.
It is all about being a man, and men when faced with challenges don't run crying to their mommy (lawyer in this case), but do what men do.
Fix it and get on with their lives.
#1185 of 2218 Has Honda Fixed CR-V AC Compressor Problem on New CR-V?
Jul 01, 2009 (9:03 am)
I am thinking seriously about buying a 2010 CR-V when it hits the dealer, but since I like to keep a car a long time I am conerned about the AC compressor problem. Has Honda stopped using the faulty compressor on 2009 and /or 2010 CR-Vs? If not I think I will be looking at other makes.

I don't think the OP mentioned anything about a lawyer in this case. The forum was started for a reason so people are using it to vent.
Fix it and get on with their lives.
I believe that's what the owners are doing whether they've been helped partially, 100%, or not at all. You're not the only man (or woman) here...

You hit the nail on the head! I think you always need to keep your statement in mind, because your bias shows your narrow-mindedness.

Again your i***cy shows through again. If you just made a search on "nlv1", it will show you that we've exchanged banters before, and on one message (CR-V vs. Escape forum) I did say we live in Houston. It was in 2005, and you were chastising everyone who bought a CR-V with 2WD. And raising a 5-yr old in Katy (a Houston suburb), is just fine.
So again, before you put your foot in your mouth, think before you speak, or write. Will look forward to running into you later...

Guys and Gals,
All this talk about the elevation of Florida, while very entertaining, is taking away from the record of Honda's poorly designed and engineered AC system. This is the first place most people on the 'net come when they search this topic, so let's try to keep it informative and on topic. Off topic posts will just limit the impact of the myriad of stories catalogued here.
BTW, BlueEyedWhatever's suggestion to move out of Florida if AC is a requirement rather than admit that the AC should simply work was farcical, and worthy of a good laugh.
