Honda CR-V 2011

Honda says that 7 year extended warranty on clutch is expired, but the compressor clutch slowly went out. Records show back in 2017 (warranty was 7yr 100,000 miles) Thermostat was replaced and complaint was made before this time which led to the replacement of the part. AC was poor at best and kept getting worse. The vehicle was taken in for repair over and over again since then, and the problem was dismissed. Spoke to Honda with an open case and they denied that this was a compressor clutch problem, however, the AC never did work properly; ie, system was not cooling, and this started while under warranty. How many others have had problems with their AC and Honda???

Imagine, 105 degrees outside. You jump in the car, dressed up, hair done, and make up on - off to a great time. As you drive down the street, cool air was blowing out of the vents in your car. You make it 5 minutes down road when ....... the air in the car begins to blow hot. Your make up melts, your hair flops, sweat dripping down your face. Great! rotten evening and broken car again! Who knows when the air is going to work and not work.
