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.

While driving in my Honda CRV 2004 with the A/C running, I notice that the air was not getting cool. About 2 minutes later, I heard a buzzing and thumping sound. I shut the air conditioner down and took my car in for service the next day. I was told the compressor and clutch were going bad and it would be $1500 to get it fixed. After some research online I found that this is not an uncommon problem. I hope Honda is looking into this issue. I know it's not life threatening but it's certainly expensive to have fixed.

A/C compressor went bad. Ac was working great all of a sudden on one hot day, it just stops working when it was working perfectly fine. Thought I needed to get the ac charge, took it, and they today me the ac compressor went and I would need to contact Honda since they are the only one who deals with this. Call Honda and they told me that it would $1200 to start. This is outrageous with a know problem. There should be some type of recall on this, if he has happened to so many other people.

2004 Honda CRV. Began driving in 98 degree weather, heard loud clatter in engine, A/C began running warm air, car stalled. Took it to Honda dealership and was told that the A/C compressor "blew up" and it sent shards of metal throughout my entire A/C system. I was told that the entire system needed to be replaced. The repair cost would be $3500.

A/C compressor shelled/failed & sent metal shavings through-out system. System contaminated, 3K to replace whole system. In my opinion, Honda admits liability w/ "goodwill warranty" & agreed to pay 75% to fix A/C. A/C compressor defective car only has 50K mi. I want full compensation.

CR-V 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 111,900 miles
My family and I were coming back from vacation from Florida, when all of a sudden there was a loud noise and sounded like something fell out of my car. As we were driving we noticed that the air wasn't cooling like it should be. So for the next 2 hours we had to drive without any air in 100 degree heat. I took it in the next day to get it looked at and they said the whole air compressor completely fell apart and fell out of the car and ruined the air conditioner so that the whole thing would have to be replaced. About $2500 to replace, so I called american Honda Corp and had to haggle with them for over a week so that I would have to only pay $600.
