My 7 months pregnant wife got stranded 200 miles from home when her alternator decided to die on her resulting in a dead battery. We only have 50,000 miles on this vehicle and an alternator shouldn't die on a vehicle this young in its life span. Luckily a good seminarian decided to give her car a jump start which got her to her destination safely. So since we are out of warranty and needed to have this fixed quickly, we took it to a local trusted shop in the area and the alternator had a faulty part which ended up costing us over $600 dollars to get fixed. We also have had a loud engine rattle noise that occurs on cold startups for the past year and Honda has been aware of this issue since 2008 and has not issued a recall and has not come up with a permanent fix. I believe the quality of Honda cars has been drastically declining over the past couple of years and I have lost faith in the Honda brand and will never buy another Honda again.

Failure Date: 03/27/2015

Summary: while driving, the master power window switch overheated and began to emit a strong burning odor. Afterwoods the left rear window failed to operate. Since I initially did not know where the odor was coming from, I went to the dealer the next day to see if they could find the source of the odor but they couldn't. After sniffing around, I found the source of odor, the master power window switch. I had the dealer remove the fuse for safety reasons. The dealer said the window regulator had failed but I suspect the failed switch burnt out the window motor. I was worry that the car would catch on fire.

We bought this car in March, 2013. Now in 2014, we noticed the ac wasnt working we attempted to recharge it with freon, but I was told the compressor needed to be replaced. The compressor was replace, the condenser, lines, ex valve, even a sensor. Pretty much all the ac system has been replace. Now we have noticed that once the compressor is on. It causes the engine to stall while driving or making turns. It feels as if the compressor will cause the engine to turn off. As if not bad enough once the car is on park with ac on the compressor will shut-off and the ac will start blowing a humid-smelly air. Once it does this, the compressor's emergency valve will open and flush some freon. It is a very serious safety hazard. I dont feel safe driving the car with my family in it. Specially now that I've read about all the other recalls and complains. Doing my research now (which is too late), I found that Honda was sued due to this issue. Ac compressor malfuntion is to be found in 02-04 Honda crvs. Our crv has been back at the mechanic 3 times the last month, and yet the issue cant be resolve. The mechanic says it has to do with the way the system was design. Alternator and compressor share the same band. I'm afraid and concerned that at somepoint both things will give-out while driving.

Battery was going dead periodically. Thought I was leaving a light on or door open. Told the Honda dealer to check the battery while it was under warranty. They never checked it. Didnt even put that I asked to check it. Out of warranty battery went dead. Did a check at autozone they said it was the altenator. Changed altenator still the same problem. Voltage regulator. The volts only stay up when I keep the headlights on. ( more to this story about my bad dealership experience but don't want to get into it).

I paid cash for a new 2012 Cr-v ex l with nav. Within a few months of purchase, the car broke down. I stopped for gas and it would not start. I am a single female and had to walk in the dark to walmart, buy jumper cables and flash someone down for a boost. Took the car to the dealer and they stated nothing was wrong with the car. It keeps happening over and over again. It has broken down several times and each time I take it to the dealer, they say nothing is wrong with it. I've had to pay out of pocket for a tow truck and repairs that still did not fix the problem. I took it to another Honda dealership and it broke down while at the dealer. It would not start. Was completely dead. They ran several test and like the other dealer stated they can not find anything wrong with it. Less than three weeks later, it broke down again. It is still in the shop. Been there for 2 weeks and they still have no clue whats wrong with the car. Honda tried to start the car yesterday and it would not start, completely dead. They have checked everything (battery, alternator, recalls, electoral, etc. ) several times and it comes back saying good condition. Something is wrong with this car and Honda won't admit it or take responsibility. It is obviously something wrong with this vehicle.

Subject: window goes off track & malfunction even after replacing the power window switch & regulator. For about a year or so I've recurring problems with the window master power switch & regulator. Then, I thought it is caused by wear & tear. Therefore, I replaced the following parts thinking the problem would be solved: on January 28, 2011, the regulator for driver's side window was replaced by brand new part. On April 16,11 bought brand new window master power switch & replaced the old one a week later. Up until yesterday (09/30/11), the driver's side & the two back windows were working properly. But, the front passenger window is still not working. Yesterday, September 30, 2011, around 3. 00 p. M. , I pressed the power switch to open the the driver's side window, then I heard unusual sound and noticed that the window went off track. Since then every the window is off track. . Then, I began to research online and found out the issue has been discussed by many people. Right now, two Honda dealerships told me I've to pay for fixing the problem. But, I disagree & I feel your office should impose for recall & Honda should be responsible for taking care of this problem for me. Below are some websites that I found about the subject matter: (1).

Purchased a new Honda crv on Friday July 25th. Two days later, with less than 200 miles on the odometer, the battery light, exclamation mark, vehicle stability light and check engine light came on, the vehicle hesitated while attempting to accelerate, and rolled back when the transmission was in the drive mode. I took the crv to the Honda dealership where they cleaned the alternator terminals, that did not fix the problem. They have now changed the alternator but the check engine light is still on. Now they think that the engine air 'intake' may be the problem.
