Honda - A/c problems
MELBOURNE, FLORIDA -- 2008 Honda CR-V blows hot air (90 degrees per dealers statement) from lower vent, while blowing 68 degrees from upper and side vents. Dealer tells me this is normal, but I disagree, since this started happening after 3 and a half years of ownership. It seems to be the same old runaround when their mechanics either don't know how to fix the problem, or too much time would be involved and cut the dealership profits. They tell me this is normal in all cr-v's and nobody has ever complained about it before. Unbelievable. It wouldn't matter which state in the summer time, but when the outside temperture is 90+, and the lower vent blows out 90 degrees of hot, and the upper vents blows 68 degrees, how can it cool the car down? It seems the air conditioner is working against itself. The Japanese are very intelligent and honest people, and I don't believe they would let this kind of flaw go on the market. I think the fault lies with either greed or dishonest dealerships, because an honest dealership would try very hard to find the problem and notify Honda to have this corrected for all Honda CR-V's. I was directed to another dealership, but they wanted $112.00 up front to look at the car. Doesn't speak too highly of Honda products.
