#1880 of 2218 2004 CRV AC History
Jul 18, 2011 (10:05 am)
My experience with 2004 Honda CRV - original equipment compressor lasted 4 years; 1st replacement (not from a Honda dealer) lasted 15 months; 2nd replacement (not from a Honda dealer) lasted 20 months. I am now facing a 3rd replacement. Four compressors in 7+ years. Honda has a serious design problem - original equipment and replacement market. After the original equipment compressor failed, Honda America said they would consider a "good will" warranty payment for a portion of my 1st replacement cost but they eventually refused. The sad part of this (and it is my fault), I purchased a 2009 Honda CRV.

My 2007 always has worked fine in SOCAL. I keep it on recirculate at all times to keep it cool while using the air conditioner. I use max air at first and then keep it in the normal setting. It seems like the system is undersized for the car, but mine is trouble free.(knock on wood)

my ac went out in my 06 crv yesterday. today the honda dealer told me my compressor failed and spewed small metal parts throughout the system and the entire ac system needs to be replaced - to the tune of 3800.00!!!!! the car has 60k miles on it! has anyone been told that?
#1886 of 2218 02 CRV air conditioner failure
Jul 22, 2011 (1:07 pm)
Had brakes and tires done this week and CRV AC stopped working today. In the Firestone shop and another owner with an 03 CRV also had brakes done and just brought his CRV in with an AC that's not working. Has anyone ever heard of such a coincidence? Is there any link between tire/brake work and AC? It sounds illogical. But I don't believe in coincidences.

This sucks!!! On my 07 CRV with 450000 miles, a/c just stopped working on my way back to texas from michigan. The outside temp was 105F. let me tell you it was not fun. I pulled over at OK and tried to fix it thinking of a quick fix like blown fuse. After driving around for 2 hrs I found some body who is willing to take a look at it and suggested of a compressor issue.
I had to stay at a hotel until the sun goes down and drove home at night.Today I called Honda america and they told me to have the vehicle checked by a dealer. honda dealer diagnosed a compressor issue and they said they will follow up with the Honda. The car is at the dealer. I still dont know what thw Honda would be coming up with. Is it ok that the dealer follow up with this case

It's absolutely disgusting that this is going on and Honda is doing nothing about it. My wife has a 2004 Honda CRV and our AC went out about a month ago. We just moved halfway across the country with no AC until we could get it to a dealer. Of course we get a call that says it's the compressor, shredded metal inside and they can't tell the extent of the damage but "low" estimate is $1900 with the higher being $2500. The stupid honda mechanic even suggested we try to save some money going aftermarket if we can't afford this fix. I have no desire to pay them for a defective part they know about but refuse to compensate customers for. I will be selling this car ASAP and I won't ever be heading back to Honda. If you can't supply a decent product at least stand behind the crap you sell. Disgusting.
#1889 of 2218 Whole AC system replaced
Jul 26, 2011 (2:22 pm)
My AC died last week . This is a 2005 CR-V LX 4AWD with 65k, my second CR-V from the same dealer. All maintenances done at the same place. So the manager know me and after I told him about maybe going for a Toyota (8p) he right there told me he will drop the dealer's charge(~$800) from the estimate $3800. Also he will call the Honda rep for his area and descuss the issue. Few hours later he called and told me Honda would pay 50%, so my bill is now $1400 and 12 months warranty . I would preffer $0 but better then $3800.
