#2124 of 2218 Alin Class Action Settlement for Compressors
Jan 03, 2013 (4:28 pm)
I have interesting news for anyone denied a refund for the 2002-2004 Honda CRV compressor class action suit.
This suit was settled November 2012.
If you were denied a settlement amount and were told the reason was the mileage did not match the year EX: year 4/48,000 miles you were denied wrongly. The forward slash means OR not and. They are trying to interpret their own guidelines.
I am appealing Alin Settlement Litlgation's ruling and if this happened to you then you should too!

I'm a 2002 Honda CRV owner - and just was told that my a/c compressor might have blown up ... wasn't even using the a/c - but they're looking to make sure it's Not black death
WHAT WAS THE RESULT OF THE HONDA CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT REGARDING THIS IF HONDA DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM? and were they told to do recall's on all these vehicles to make sure it didn't happen again?? would like to know the exact lawsuit name/#

The lawsuit was over and done with, and a lot of disappointed people. No recalls. Mine has been fixed three times already.

I looked into it, but it was such a joke I just gave up. For my year, they were going to give me such a small percentage back (IF THEY EVEN APPROVED IT) that it wasn't worth my time. I can't remember the website--it was a lawyer's website. They make you jump through 20,000 hoops and paperwork.
I had better things to do with my time. So, the big Corporation won again. I just got it fixed and moved on with my life. Good luck though!
#2128 of 2218 Extended Warranty on A/C Compressor Clutch
Jan 25, 2013 (9:59 am)
Yesterday I got a notice from Honda that the warranty has been extended on the A/C Compressor Clutch for 7 years/100,000 (whichever is first). I actually had the compressor replaced last week on my 2009 CR-V, 85,000 miles, at the cost of over $1,000. This notice said to mail in the notice with your repair bill for possible reimbursement. I have no idea how much, but I'm going to send it in.

I have a 2008 CR-V EX-L. I have not seen this letter from Honda. Did it say what model years were covered? Are you in Canada or the USA?

My AC blew at 96K, and at the time the warranty was through 95K. But from what I could see, I would have only received $150.00, so not worth all the time I would have had to invest. Keep us posted if you are successful.
#2131 of 2218 Customers lost
Jan 26, 2013 (4:07 pm)
I have to presume there are folks who work for Honda that view this blog on a regular basis, so hopefully my words will be shared.
If Honda invested the money to do the right thing and fix all the A/C issues via a recall, they wouldn't lose all the customers they have likely lost over this issue. It seems a $2000 investment which actually would cost Honda a lot less, is a better investment than losing customers who will not invest in another Honda because of this AC system. So instead of losing $1000-$2000 to fix the problem, they have now lost over $20-30K from those of us that will not invest in a Honda again. It is not to say other auto companies don't have issues, but hoping if something like this happens with another vehicle I purchase in the future, the company will do the right thing.

I also received the warranty extension in the mail for my 2007 CR-V for the Compressor Clutch. I had a $1000 repair. My receipt says they replaced the compressor, which the dealership says is different than the compressor clutch. I have no idea. Does anyone know if this makes sense?
