I was told by Honda that my 2010 CRV has a Feron Leak in the Evaporater. The cost to fix this is huge. I have two Hondas a 2007 Civic no problems and this 2010 CRV up till now all service on these vehicles has been done by HONDA here in the Lehigh Valley. need to take this auto somewhere else. I have to be a millionaire to keep up with this.
Thank you.
The a/c does not blow cold air when in park. After the car gets going, it whistles, and gets cool. Every red light we start over.
AC worked fine & then it didnt. Spent over $900 to replace compressor. Had cold air for 3 days. Took it back to the dealership, & guess what, it was a leak in the evaporator but they "did me a favor" by giving me employee pricing on the evaporator (over $600)...but it has worked fine since then...the AC has at least...
Third trip to the dealer and finally they said its the AC evaporator core leaking....fixing it now...$975.00.
