Yes that's true. I've been trying and have managed to ignore the last 10 or so, but today I caved.
And I caved because it is my hope that new posters don't be made to feel like they are complaining over nothing or have their concerns pooh pooh'd. So my hope is that my post offsets his irrationale, and re-instills confidence in those who gently force their dealer to do the 'right thing'.

I deleted the first response to you and it's probably a good thing I did.
First of all, I don't need you to teach me about how a car runs. I've been in the automotive industry all of my life and I once ran a large shop.
I heve been around these forums since they started and I have watched minor grass fires rage into infernos as more and more people with problems flock to the "problems" forums. Some are real and others have been blown way out of proportion. A lot of people have neen needlessly frightened into thinking they better not take their car on vacation lest some component such as an A/C pump could suddenly fail.
I'm not sure just how many miles or how many years you think an A/C compressor should last but given enough time, sooner or later, they will fail providing the car itself has a very long life.
Life isn't even and some people will have much better luck than others.
I am no longer am involved with Honda...I really don't care!
I only passed on the info that I got from several key people at the store where I worked and that is (and still is) that they have not experienced this on CRV's any more so than on any other model Honda and that A/C pump failures aren't very common.
Now, having said that, I do feel for the people who have been hit with these huge repair bills. My wife drives a CRV and it's seven years old with 50,000 miles.
I still don't think that it's a DESIGN or COMPONENT flaw whe something breaks that is many thousands of miles or many years beyond it's warranty.
