I had a 96 Accord that was fantastic. I had the AC go on my 2002 CRV shortly after it was out of warranty....about 42K miles. Honda covered the whole repair and, at the time, I thought that was great. As I kept reading these forums, though, I felt like I was at a big risk for another failure to the point I hardly used my AC last summer. That doesn't work in Georgia. Traded it in on a Toyota Prius last October and couldn't be happier. I got a good trade-in value for it, but I had hoped it would have been a vehicle I could have kept longer. I don't like how Honda has denied the problem to customers. I would call it lying. I would think twice before buying another vehicle from them and it is one of the reasons I went for the Prius over the Fit.

Funny, mine went out last week too! 100plus degree weather, 2 kids in back (one a newborn), in the middle of a 5 hour drive to be with my grandma (who ended up passing away), $2000 bill and no help from Honda! Oh, and I had problems with the back hatch not locking as well. This just should not happen to a vehicle that is 5 years old and has less than 80,000 miles. I can get the came car for much less, but I wanted the giant H on it for resale and reputation. Goodbye Honda. Hello Toyota.

The giant H now stands for "Hooked and Hustled"

Are you saying that HA reimbursed you even after you repaired it at an independent? I am in the same boat as you, same details on the car and am getting the car repaired at an independent. HA said they would reimburse if I get it done at a dealer, but not if at an independent. I'm now in a fix. Can you help?

HA reimbursed 50% for work done at an independent. I also had to prove I traded in a Honda product for the CRV by faxing a copy of the purchase contract showing the trade in; showing I was a "brand loyal customer".
If they will pay 100% for work done at a dealer - why wouldn't you have the work done at a dealer - or - has the work already been done.
#1872 of 2218 Az Heat and CRV Ac Issue
Jul 14, 2011 (7:12 pm)
So my honda 2004 crv's ac went out last year towards the end of summer. We thought it must be just freeon issue..got it checked from Meineke for free and found out it was compressor problem. I contacted Honda America after reading all the posts. They asked me that they can only help if I get it diagnosed from Honda dealer. Well had to spend $110 for diagnosis the dealer quoted $3950 ....Well honda america spoke with the dealer and they are ready to reduce the price to $2300 where as Meineke is ready to do the same service for $1400..The Honda America customer service is the worst I have come across. rude agents and they dont care a damn about u..I wasted $110 thinking they might be fair considering I have another Honda Accord and nothing....We all need to get together and do something about this issue..Well if noone has died someone could die definately in 110 degrees here in Arizona. I cant find the lawsuit anywhere as well....We have to do something seriously.....

We are owners of a 03 CRV. (low mileage) We were informed this morning by our independent mechanic that our AC compressor seized and the AC system needs $1400 worth of repairs. Called our Honda dealer to get this documented and their diagnosis. This is Friday, they are booked until Wed.
(It's going to be in the mid 90's all next week) but I guess it doesn't really matter since we were informed that many of the parts related to this problem are not available and they have no idea when they will be. (Columbus, Ohio) I have not read any other posts about parts not being available. Also, went to the class action lawsuit website that is mentioned all over online, and all I could find was a form to fill out over a Civic tire problem. Very frustrating and I know this is only the beginning............

I have the same issue too.... frustrating.... I bought my 2004 Honda CRV used w/ 66, 000 miles on it last year and bought a Powertrain Plus warranty for 24,000 miles... I am just under that 24,000 by 400 miles and last week the air compressor blew... The dealer and the warranty company went back and forth on what the warranay company would be responsible for... The dealer had my car for 1 week, I get the car back yesterday, told I got a new compressor along w/ other parts of the motor that needed to be repaired and guess who has warm air blowing out of their air conditioner again??? Hubby is going back to the dealer... I know it's not the dealer's fault, but someone needs to get this right.... I had a 1998 CRV and never had this issue, that's why I went back to one....
