A/C compressor blew up at 55k miles
By Ed C on


2004 Honda CR-V EX AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


A/C condenser blew up with 55k miles requiring a complete replacement of the entire A/C system costing $3500. Honda refused to pay for any of the repair costs although this is a common issue. Car had other minor quality defects with the window controls and control panel. I liked the way the car looked and handled but the overall quality for this model is way below what I would expect from any manufacturer.

Best Features

Interior design and seats flexibility. Car handles well for a small SUV and engine has enough power.

Worst Features

Honda needs to recall the A/C compressor. Thousands of other owners are experiencing the same failure and Honda keeps acting like it doesn't know about the issue. I have been a Honda owner for over 12 years and this is my third Honda vehicle. Their quality is not the same as it used to be.
