Just a quick hello.

I'm an ex-pat from the US now living in sunny southern Australia. Not new to Hondas... well, cars I am, motorcycles had Hondas for years :)

Just picked up my 1 owner from new (RHD) 2004 CR-V. So far I like it.


Only Achilles' heel big enough to mention on these is the a/c compressor issue. I read somewhere that some were using the compressor from the 05/06 model in the 04's as it was a redesigned part from the one that would fail and blow up the entire a/c system.

Has anyone heard any truth to that statement? I'm looking to replace the one in mine before it has a chance to grenade. It's only got about 102,000KMs on the clock (about 63k miles). But I'd rather eat the cost of a compressor now than the entire system if it goes.

No one's heard of this?

Honda lost a class action suit against them in the US on this issue. So I figured it must be fairly wide spread for that to happen.
