Honda CR-V Problem Report
Honda CR-V AC Not Blowing Cold
The AC compressor may seize resulting in loss of cold air from the AC vents. Often when the compressor fails in the fashion, debris is spread through out the entire air conditioning system resulting in very expensive repairs.
This is a common defect on a lot of Honda's. Honda is aware of the defect and rather than issue a recall is stiffing their customer base for the repairs. This should be a recall. I went into my dealer with literally thousands of pages of printouts of issues with the compressors. They fixed mine, but there are thousands of complaints where customers had to pay. Google it. - Visitor
A/C just stopped cooling from one minute to the next. - Visitor
A/C quit blowing cold air. Loud "banging" sound occurred with a slight smell and "squeeling" noise. Thought something was falling out of my engine. Just happened today, have not had looked at yet. - Gary Andrews
Air worked fine, then just started blowing warm/hot air. - Visitor
ac started blowing warm air. It was working the day before. Took it to the dealer and had to pay 1,200$ to replace the ac compressor. - Visitor
A/C stopped working, blowing warm air. No sounds. Dealerhips, who to this point has done all maint/repair, says the compressor seized dispersing filings throughout the system, requirimg most of the system to be replaced.. Repair estimated to be a little over $3,000.. - Visitor
Will not hold freon charge, light comes on when ac button is pressed and hear the engine load, but no cold air - Visitor
Started blowing hot air when I started car, ac worked fine when I went into store - Visitor
My Honda CR-V 2003 started making loud noise when the A/c is switched on. Took it to the Honda dealer where I get all my work done. I was quoted $4,000 for replacing the compressor after all discounts applied on labor and parts. Before discount, the quote was for $5,000+. Is is really supposed to be that expensive. I am at a loss whether to get this fixed or trade in this car for a new one. Dealer is not very hopeful of any help from the Honda Goodwill repair program. - Visitor
Dealer quotes 3000.00 to fix. - Visitor
blowing warm air for several months -- decided not to investigate as I'm in Maine. Right front started smoking.... thought it was seized brake. Opened up hood, heard belt snap, towed to shop, and now estimated $1,200. just like everyone else. - Visitor
warm air is coming out instead of cool one. my auto repair shop says, the clutch needs to be exchanged, but they can not buy just the clutch, they have to buy the whole system, which is $ 1500. - Visitor
My a/c on my 2007 Civic Hybrid has been blowing warm air for awhile now. I Finally, they tell me today that the whole system need to be replaced at a cost of $3390. This is after just spending over $2000 on a new hybrid battery, Honda has one down hill dramatically and now seem worse than the American car companies. The a/c is a known problem and they will not own up to it. I have never had such bad issues with my Homdas of old or American cars at that. Stay away from Honda!!!!!! - Visitor
Doesn't matter what temp is outside. Air doesn't cool down most of the time. Occasionally cools down car then won't cool again. Bad enough I have to roll down windows to get cooler. - Visitor
A/c worked fine then the next day just started blOWING WARM AIR. - Visitor
I purchased my car new in August of 2009. In 2013 I noticed the air wasn't blowing cool. I had my auto tech teacher at my high school fill the freon and it blew cold all summer. In the fall it wasn't very cool anymore. I had him check it last week (April 10,2015) and there was no freon in the system and the compressor had a significant leak. I just purchased a new one and will have him repair it. He told me that it would be a very pricey fix if I brought it in to an auto repair shop. - Visitor
Not yet resolved due to cost and out of warranty - Visitor
A/c works intermittently. Have had two dealers tell me there is nothing wrong. I'm disappointed in Honda and will likely never buy another. - Visitor
Just bought this 2007 CRV used last fall. Love it but the AC just stopped working. Not happy reading about this known issue. We own 2 Honda's and have been very happy, but... My fear is that since this car has over 100,000 miles they will blow me off. Stay tuned. - jallem
