Beware of A/C Compressor Issues
By Tim on


2003 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


We owned this car for a little over 2 years and it was definitely a great car overall EXCEPT for the A/C compressor issues. The compressor blew not once, BUT TWICE on us within a 6-month period and the car only has 62,000 miles on it! Honda would NOT help us out with goodwill assistance and insisted it's not a known issue (do an internet search and you'll find that's NOT true). If you get one without A/C issues then it would probably still be a great car to own - very practical.

Best Features

Fold down console, drawer under chair, space

Worst Features

Offer a recall on the KNOWN A/C compressor issue where it actually BLOWS up!
