On Wednesday July 21, 2010 at approximately 1:00pm I left to pick up my cousins family from phoenix sky harbor international airport. Driving there the air conditioning on my 2006 Honda CRV was blowing cold air. Upon arriving at the airport I headed to the curbside pickup turned off the vehicle and loaded up the luggage. When I turned on the ignition to head back home I noticed the air conditioner was no longer running cold, only blowing hot air. In Arizona, the summer time is extremely hot. Today, July 27, 2010 I took my Honda CRV to Firestone complete auto care to have an A/C performance check and it was determined road debris (a rock) went through the condenser and created a hole. The associate contacted Toyota (purchased it certified used and bought an extended warranty) who said it was considered road damage and the repair would not be covered. I have held off on the repair until I gather a few estimates and contact Honda directly. I have researched online and this is a very common problem among some of their vehicles. There is a design flaw with the grill that allows large debris to enter and cause damage.

problem #2

Sep 132008


  • 44,300 miles
The ac compressor locked up on 9/13/08. The car has approximately 44300 miles. The car is still drivable without the ac. The dealer quoted $3000 for parts and labor because the failure of the compressor created other problems and all the lines have to be replaced. Fortunately, I have an extended 72 month/72K mile warranty which should cover all but $100 deductible. An adjustor must first approve the repairs, so it will be several days because this happened on a Saturday.

Water pump failure, asked on three occasions while in the repair shop about a noise in the engine, it was ignored or I was told it was something else. My car then overheated nearly causing an accident, because it stalled. I had an extensive repair bill nearly $1000.
