CR-V 4-cyl

  • 48,154 miles


My air conditioner compressor went out. The air conditioner was blowing warm air not cool or cold at all. I took it into Honda dealer... it will cost me $900 to replace it. I am not to use it at all because it might implode or explode... I was called by the Honda sales dept when I got home... I told him that I was on a fixed income and could not afford to buy a new car. (retired). So no matter what they said was wrong with my car, I cannot afford to buy another one. Then I looked online and saw where there was a lawsuit for the Honda crvs 2002 - 2004 because of this problem. And many other CRV years had the same problem! not just the 2002 -2004S. Why didn't Honda recall all of the air compressors... my car is only 7 yrs old. I just thought it was my bad luck at first until I went online and saw all the complaints reg the compressors! can something be done to help us out? this is dangerous. I cannot even use the fan for air flow until it is fixed... I don't want it imploding or exploding! help

CR-V 4-cyl

  • 90,000 miles
Air conditioner failure at 90,000. Its twin, a 2005 CRV, had the exact same problem at the same mileage. This repair was $900. The ac had recently had a tuneup, as we were concerned over it due to the older car having the same problem. Checkup showed no issues; failure was sudden.

I have had this vehicle since 2006. Never had any issues until this year when the ABS and vsa light came on. At first there was no issue but it got to the point that even after replacing several sensors the lights would stay on and the vehicle's cruise control could not set. It also had a lag between braking to when the vehicle would stop. Finally the engine seized in the middle of the road when my daughter was driving it. We replaced the engine to the tune of $2000 and now only a few weeks later the vsa light is back on.

On May 8th, I drove my 2006 Honda CR-V home from a restaurant. I traveled about 25 miles per hour in my neighborhood. My Honda CR-V suddenly shut off engine and restarted itself. The vsa light, check engine light and one more light came on. I was so scared. On May 10th, I took my car to Honda dealer to be checked out. They told me that the vehicle stability assistance (vsa) system failed after I owned the car for four years and at 45000+ miles. Dealer told me it cost $2300 dollars to replace the system. I did not accept it. I asked dealer and America Honda Corp. To help. Finally they agreed I paid $725 dollars for the entire repair.
