Honda CR-V Air Conditioner Issue Cover Up
By Mac PSP on
2003 Honda CR-V LX AWD 4dr SUV w/ Side Airbags (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Purchased my Honda CR-V new, it now has just over 70,000 miles, last week the air conditioning system failed and wiped out the entire system. The dealer wanted $2000 to replace the system. I refused and checked out the issue on line. As it turns out there are multiple year air conditioning failures on the CR-V. Honda's USA Corporate office is refusing to acknowledge to there is an issue. I am contacting the California State Attorney General and an attorney. Honda's Corporate Customer Service Rep would not let me make a point on the phone and told me, "I might want to be quiet before I stuck my foot in my mouth!" This is typical of how Honda has handled this problem. Stay tuned!
I had the same A/C problem about 3 years ago. Was told it would cost $3000 to fix it. Went online and discovered that others had the same problem and got Honda to fix it for free. I went to the dealer with a print out of the info from online and they fixed it at no cost. Been working fine since then.
