My CR-V Auto EX's air conditioning has failed at 41,998 miles. Dealer reckons failed electronic clutch with slight risk it could also require a compressor change. Replacement of clutch £598...with a further £1200 if compressor involved. There would be a marginal saving on any duplicated labour. The extended warranty announced by Honda has in my case expired on 31 March 2013. Since this was not a general recall and my CR-V is serviced privately, but regularly, according to the book, I understand the dealer was under no obligation to contact me. Poor show I would say. I have had no offer of goodwill from the dealer who suggested I contact Honda customer relations which I have done. Everything very polite and civil. I now await a call back from the customer relations people to see what the next step is. I have never had a problem with the car ( other than quite heavy tire usage) and was shocked to find that such a serious thing could happen in a car so relatively young. The explanation I got was ..the location of the unit (at the bottom of the engine) and the salty roads in Scotland. My son who drives Audis and Mercedes couldn't believe what I was telling him. Anyway, I await!
