This is why it is so important to identify recalls that affect you and your family. When recalls are issued that affect you, you are entitled to a refund, repairs, or replacement. Failure of an automobile's air conditioning is not considered a safety risk or hazard to consumers and will not result in a recall being issued.

Is There a Recall of the Honda CRV?

Honda CRV owners have been reporting issues relating to air conditioner condenser failure. Honda extends a 3 year or 36,000-mile warranty for all Honda air conditioner units. Consumers complain that the condenser is failing just after their warranty has run out. The amount of complaints lodged has prompted Honda to extend the warranty covering air conditioner condensers on the Civic to a 10-year warranty, but no extension has been issued yet for other Honda models.

Can You Receive Replacement or Repairs With No Recall?

The warranty extension for the Civic states that the condensers are not manufactured to specification. This results in holes and corrosion developing which causes the coolant to leak out. Complaints from consumers indicate CRV and many other models are affected by the same issues. If you experience similar issues, you may be entitled to a warranty extension as well.
