#1605 of 2218 My air commpressor exploded
Jul 28, 2010 (12:54 pm)
I have a 2004 CRV with 88K miles. My air conditioner compressor blew up. It is being repaired at a friend's non-Honda dealership because I'm at least getting a deal on the repair. He already called Honda to see if they can do anything for me considering this seems to be an ongoing problem with CRVs and was told no because I had so many miles on the car. My question is, Do you think I should pursue this further with Honda and will they shut me down because I am having it repaired at another dealership. Being a woman not the least bit interested in cars I don't want to waste my time chasing Honda if I'm going to get nowhere. I welcome any opinions. Thanks

blueiedgod, you are a little quirky. Still, thanks for the many informative and valuable posts.
Like many others, I too wish major car components lasted well past their warranty. I wish they lasted the life of the car. But they sometimes don't. For most of us, though, Hondas cost less to maintain and are more reliable. I had a Toyota tranny fail at 106k. Now I know that shouldn't have happened, not when it was serviced regularly and driven sensibly. Otherwise, the car was flawless.
Bottom line, cars have become so much more reliable than a few decades ago that almost any flaw has now become unacceptable. That sounds to me like a perfect setup to be disappointed.

You have no idea what you are talking about.
I do appreciate the laugh!
Seriously, you are embarassing yourself.

Prove it. PROVE IT! Name one thing i said that was not entirely accurate and FACT! But don't make BS claims. If you rebut, PROVE IT! ALtho that will be a trick because you won't be able to. I have you dead to rights and that is the best you can come up with? YOU sir are the one who has embarrassed himself. Your best chance to save face here is admit that every single point I made hit nails squarely on heads. Don't forget, people here reading these replies can think and reason for themselves. If you want to retain some self-respect I'd quit before you pull the dirt in over yourself here. You *claim* that you want to be helpful, but no one is buying it here.
I have been attempting to give you some benefit of doubt. Not any more though bud. Consider this my last reply to you. In fact I think you more closely resemble a troll and your last post just confirmed it.
Glad you are retired from the business. Salesmen are notorious for not having a clue about what they are selling anyway. But you aren't selling anyone here anything.
edit- friendly pc of advice....it is ok if you want to retract what you said and admit you stepped over the line. There is no shame in admitting you were...dare i say....wrong.

This discussion is about Honda CR-V AC compressor problems, not each other.
Thanks for sticking to the topic.

powder puff--As a female, I have found it in my best interest over the years to learn as much as I can about cars because some (not all) in the auto business see women as a target. If you got a deal on the repair, consider yourself lucky. Do not stress yourself out with American Honda. Let your friend keep servicing your car.
I have an '02 Honda--88K--AC went out July 10. The first dealership said, "You are the second owner and haven't been having your car serviced here. No help from us." Yesterday, I purchased a new Honda Element from a different dealership and left the CR-V there for them look at. I requested that they call American Honda and ask for a goodwill warranty. I don't expect any help, though.

There is NO WAY a failed AC compressor can throw a car into a skid so it's probably time to move on.

I advise you to go back and reread my post #1604. Right at the beginning I state in clear black and white that i did not make that claim! Perhaps you intended to reply to the original poster who did claim what you are refuting here. I see you do that often on your other threads, so you are no stranger to dishing out grief, yet claiming you were trying to be 'helpful'.
"Sell" it to someone else, ok?? Or better yet do a full retirement.
I suggest to you HONDA, to slow down and be more sure where you are slinging your accusations.
note to HOST - I mean no disrespect to your request to keep it about the A/C compressor on this thread by defending myself here, but I did ask nicely that he not put words in my mouth. And I feel it is important that others DO understand the risks of the loss of a serpentine belt. If you are mechanical yourself, you will know what I said is true in post #1604 and I would like you to quash these idiotic/incorrect posts/accusations by (the one who would have us believe he sold hondas) by feebly attempting to dispute my good and absolutely correct advice.
