2003 Honda CR-V Reviews

I HAVE PROBLEM MY CAR DIED EVERY OTHER NIGHT. CHANGE BATTERY AND ALSO ALTERNATOR. CHANGE THE ALARM CERBERUS. I DON'T NOT WHAT ELSE TO DO,I TRIED EVERYTHING PEOPLE SUGGEST ME.
The air conditioning system went out. Thousands of complaints about this on the internet. Honda wont do anything about it. The drivers side window switch went out. Bought the car for my daughter. I will never buy another Honda
The fuel vapor recover canister hangs to low to the ground and is very expensive to repair. We have torn it out 5 separate times at the cost of $1800 each time. The Honda dealers in our area are aware of the problem. The dealer replaces the same parts but makes no effort to protect this part from further damage.
