To Booger53...I have the same problem with my 2005 CRV. The dealer offered $1000 of the $3200 however I cannot afford $2200. I have tried to resolve with American Honda but have been met with the rudest people in customer service. I was told that my car has too many miles for them to offer any financial assistance. I am trying to find out more about the "area rep" you mention. How did you know who to contact and do you have more information on how I can find out who my area rep is? PS - it is now 105' in Tucson AZ

He hasn't been back for a while.
I'm sure that someone scans the emails and will simply forward your email to customer service.
Meanwhile, by posting your email on a public forum, you've invited every spammer and spambot in the world to grab it.

I have the "black death" problem with my 2001 crv. Happened 2 years ago, but now I'm desperate to get the A/C fixed. I'm in Houston. Can you share the names of the shops you went to? Thanks!

I took my CRV 2004/90,000 miles to HONDA dealership today for oil/filter change and to replace engine air filter. Right after I left the shop, a couple of miles down the road my A/C broke. I went back to the dealership; they quoted me $ 3750 to be fixed. Could the dealership have messed up something while servicing my car that led to the A/C to fail? Any ideas? Did anyone have similar problems?Thanks

Count yourself as a "Lucky One", mine went out at 46K and again 2 months later. The dealer did not mess up ... HONDA messed up when they re-designed the ac unit.

You may be right. But this is what happened exactly: The A/C clutch or “plate” in front of the pulley/belt was missing (probably it fell down while I was driving to which the noise was attributed to). How could that have happened? Are you saying this is a bad design by Honda? Did any one else have exactly the same problem? Thanks.

After reading all these comments and on Topix.com as well, it seems it's definitely Honda's bad A/C design for this type of car. In my opinion, we should complain to Honda of America and to the DOT/NTSB or other Federal Agencies about this. It's highly treacherous to drive a car where the A/C locks-up or disintegrates while driving. Luckily I wasn't driving fast and there were no pieces of fragmented metal that fell off the A/C that did damage other parts of the engine. We should be on top of this. Thanks.

My 2002 CRV has had 4 different A/C compressors and now the 4th blew out yesterday. Last one was put on in May 2010. Just over a year ago. Why does Honda not see a problem here? The blinders must be large and tight to miss this one. Honda speaks that there vehicles hold their value. This CVR has no value when I have all these A/C repair costs annually. Todays economy (which is why I picked a CRV) does not make anual repairs in thousands possible. We do need to contact Honda of America and not take NO for an answer. I'm going to be a nuisance until they make it right!!!!!

Good Luck with Honda .. they know there is a problem, however, no one has died because of no a/c .. so NO RECALL ... AND ... they will tell you that!!!
Why did it take you 5 a/c outages to discover this is CRapV is not worth the money?
Dumped mine after 2 outages in 3 months, with 46,000 miles on the 2004 CRapV.
