A/C Did Me In
By givingup on
2002 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
The a/c, as others have reported, is the worst part of owning this vehicle. First time it broke was long out of warranty and Honda didn't give a flip this was a common complaint. Second time, still under 1yr warranty from previous work. It took the mechanic three compressors before finding one that worked without failing instantly. Third time, I just gave up and am now looking for a new car. It was my second Honda. My first was a Civic which held up well in a very bad front end collision (I walked away uninjured from a car with no front end left) which led me to stay with Honda. The a/c experience and nearly constant check engine light are why I will leave.
I was able to fit a tremendous amount of stuff into the rear when putting the seats down which will be a feature I miss but it's time to get something more fuel efficient.
