Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Just wanted to say thank you for the website. I'm actually still sitting in the service waiting area... and happen to search for other Honda CR-V A/C Issues. After reading the many complaints... I walked over to the service rep, showed the webpage listing complaints and asked if this was a known issue. They nodded and proceeded to share with me exactly what I had already read on this site. uggh...

We'll see what is expressed after the complete diagnostic, etc.

Been waiting now appx 90min... we'll see....

CR-V LX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

I have owned 8 Honda cars since 1979 and thought this was a great vehicle (and still is with the exception of the A/C). It was in the heat of the summer and my A/C stopped working. I get all scheduled routine maintenance so I was quite upset that I had to pay 1800. to get cool air running in my CR-V.
