#1466 of 2218 2004 CRV Compressor failed again
Jul 12, 2010 (5:50 pm)
In 5/2009 I replaced my AC compressor at 80,000 miles on my 2004 CRV. Honda paid half and I paid half.
NOW 18,000 miles later; my compressor is failing. It is just outside of the warranty! They are unsure if they are going to pay for it. I STRONGLY believe Honda sold the dealership a faulty part. Why would this happen again? (This is a second compressor!)
I have to have the AC component....it's also tied to the defroster......
Finding out more and more about the CRV is driving me nuts!!
I am so done with Honda!
I thought American cars were bad.....I am beginning to thing all cars are bad.
This is my first Honda.....now my last....time to trade it in! UGH!!!!!!!!!

I have also just filed with the BBB against American Honda Motor Co...and Planet Honda.
I have filed a complaint with the Attorney General in my state
And I have filed for class action law suit.
I am done being a victim to car companies. They need to stand by their product or get out of business!
I don't know where this will get me....but I am willing to find out. And I am going to vote with my dollar from now on as well.
Bye bye Honda!

Yes, please send a link, hondaguy17! I'm having no luck with Google searches for the service bulletin. After 60,000 mi and 6 years of dealer-only service on a brand new 2004 CR-V, I feel a little screwed having to shell out $3000 for what is clearly a recognized defect in manufacturing/engineering. I would really like some factual documentation in hand for this negotiation. Thanks very much for any help you can offer!

I would also like to know the lin to fix. Honda is out of control with this mess that they have caused.

I spoke to a Honda rep yesterday who actually took my complaint.
She was respectful, asked for the VIN, my name and address and said that they would keep tabs.
Don't know if this is true, but it is a totally different response to last year when I was told that no one had called about this issue.
I was told that, should there be a recall, I would probably get reimbursement on the parts only since I take my auto to an independent mechanic; I was told that , should there be a recall, I would have potentially gotten everything back had I had the work done at the dealership.
It makes me wonder whether Honda is beginning to realize that we the customers are angry and they need to do something.

I wonder, if you feel the same way about this issue now. Just curious. I get posts every day from this thread after I made my post. This is insanity! Just saw this post as I was meandering the earlier ones, and it made me wonder...do you still feel the same?

I spoke to the Honda rep too who claimed she has never heard of this problem. i called her out on it by asking her to do a search on Google for "Honda CRV AC problems". I even told her that i found out about calling Honda America through the forum to get the job covered or discounted. The service rep at my dealership himself said this is a known issue. My local mechanic has done about twenty such jobs. He knew what the problem was before i could even tell him. Honda is just giving everyone the run around with their BS stories.

Hondaguy17, can you share with us your information about a service bulletin and the correct way to fix the problem? How and where can we access this bulletin or information? It would be really helpful to know this. Thanks!

I don't think there really is a permanent fix. I think the design is flawed and it is too expensive to develop a new one and replace them.

I don't believe there is a permanent fix either. I was just hoping that there was some official acknowledge on the part of Honda that the problem exists, that it is a system design flaw, and that they offer some reparation. Just dreaming, I guess.
