Just bought a brand new 2013 Honda Accord. I have been a loyal Honda customer my entire life. My a/c was not cooling, so I returned to the dealership where I bought it. I was told a rock hit my condenser, all of the freon leaked out, and the condenser would have to be replaced. The condenser part will cost approximately $135, but with installation it will cost $650! After all of my research online it appears this is a wide-spread problem with the design and Honda is actually making money off of the defect by charging outrageous service fees to fix the problem. It disgusts me to think this could happen again and again and again!!! So I will need to continue to pay this much money each time road debris hits my car??? Furious that Honda will not fix this flaw!!!!!!

The AC condenser failed due to contact with road debris and a lack of protection for the condenser. This has happened to me twice, once in November of 2011 and again this month January 2013. Why can Honda fix this problem?

Just had the condenser replaced in my 2011 Acura due to damage from road debris. Judging from various postings this is a common problem. If enough people complain maybe Honda will reimburse the owners. After spending $830.00 to replace it, the problem could repeat itself again and again.

Both the air conditioner condenser and the climate control module are shot on our 205 accord. The mechanic quoted a $3000 repair so we have not fixed it yet. Disappointing to have these problems already.

Have had the AC system problems 3 times in the first 6 weeks of owning the car. First time was the condenser, second was the evaporating core, and car is currently back at the dealership for the same issue.
