#2064 of 2218 2007 CR-V A/C Stopped Blowing Cold Air
Jun 17, 2012 (6:02 pm)
Hi, I own a 2007 CR-V and my A/C stopped blowing cold air a few months ago. I took it to the dealer and they replaced a Relay? It appeared to be fixed but only lasted a couple of months. It is not working again. It blows air but HOT air only. All of the lights appear to be working. The dealer seems only interested in changing the Relay.

I just got back from the dealer a second time for AC problems. The first time was $850 to replace the condenser with aftermarket. The latest time (6 weeks later) was to replace the compresser. I was quoted $1200 and asked them to call Honda corporate since a known issue. Got the cost down to $960. I am frustrated with the compresser since this is the second replacement with OEM. The first one died at 5 years and 39K miles. The second at 10 years and 96K. I have an '02 and thought the replacements were redesigned to correct the defect? At least the problem was external and didn't trash the system with metal shavings.

Hi, We also had to replace the compressor on our 2002 Honda twice, at only 60000 and 65000 miles respectively. I have the form to fill out for the
lawsuit but cannot locate the compressor part#. Can you tell me what Part# you used?

We have the form to submit to Honda, in connection with the lawsuit regarding failing compressors, but cannot find the Compressor Part# that we need to put on form. Does anyone with a 2002 Honda CRV, manual, AWD, have this part#?

I need my air compressor replaced on 2004 Civic LX, now with over 240,000 miles. Where did you find compressor on ebay? What was name of company? Trying to find it new and cheap to buy and labor also. Honda wanted $1,500 to replace. Thanks.
#2070 of 2218 2004 Honda CR-V a/c blown
Jul 23, 2012 (8:29 am)
Same "black death" experienced by so many others. My Honda dealership was so familiar with the defect that they just had to look at the shards of metal all over my engine to know what happened. Estimate of $2,480 for the compressor, clutch/coil, but will be more if the entire system needs to be done, which we all know is a necessity due to debris. 100,00 miles, original owner, always serviced at Honda. I owned a 1985 CR-X Si that went to 180,00 with no a/c problems. It was difficult to even get past the Call Center chick at American Honda (denied), but I managed to get a case number. They should get back to me within 48 hours. If they deny me again, I plan on calling every day demanding to speak with a supervisor, and then their supervisor, etc. This is a design flaw that Honda is well aware of and should take responsibility for.

Thanks so much for the part #!
#2072 of 2218 Update - DENIED!
Jul 24, 2012 (8:39 am)
Honda refused to pay one dime for my a/c repair. Julie also refused to give me her supervisor's name and finally agreed to have him/her call me within 48 hours. However, she assured me that her decision was the final one. You know where the spare tire is? A perfect place to mount a sign: "The a/c blew up in this car due to a design flaw that Honda is aware of. Honda America refuses to pay one penny of the $5,000 repair. I will never buy another Honda, and neither should you".
Who's with me?! I'm in the DC area, so my message should reach a few people.

With all due respect, when something breaks at 100K miles Honda cannot be reasonably expected to make it better. My AC compressor locked up on my 2000 CR-V at 105K: the dealer wanted 3K in Florida to make everything better. I told them to cut off the belt (charged me $90 for that 'service') and I've been driving it that way ever since, another 60K miles.
Yes, the whole situation stinks, but the warranty was expired and I had not purchased any extended protection. That's my problem, not Honda's.
Yes, their design was awful. Yes, it's unfair. No, I probably won't buy another one.
