Hi there


Just popped in as I have a technical question.  But before I post that (will need to find the right section).  Had a look around and am impressed with the friendly helpful nature of members here.  No surprise really as you are all Honda owners so know how to make correct decisions. 😄 


Anyway I have a CR-V EX I-CTDI 2009 for about 6 or 7 years now.  Love it.  Other than having to fill it up every now and again not many problems. No I lie the aircon compressor went down - cost a bomb to fix. Otherwise just niggles here and there.


Live in West Sussex - previously in North London up to a few weeks ago.


May get another Honda this year - thinking of electric or hybrid.  Still need to my research.


Anyway, thanks for having me on board.

Hi Edward......welcome to the forums

The compressor is a common fault unfortunately and does cost a lot but worthwhile in the hot weather otherwise you could have bypassed it.

I suppose the pressure is off you from no longer living in London where a hybrid or electric would be the only way forward.

Good to have you onboard!

Thanks Trevor


The compressor had to come over from Japan.  It was during the first lockdown so not too inconvenient.  But costly.  I think I paid something like £1,400 all in. Ouch.


Yes moving away from London means the Oct 2021 ULEZ deadline I get to miss. But still will look to change the car anyway in the next few months.  This place here already has a charging point so every incentive to change.

I had a sneaky feeling that Honda recalled the Air Con pump shortly after they realised there was an issue but it didn't last for long though

I suppose the only way forward is to go electric or hybrid at the very least.
If you get free electric then a plug-in is the best way to go, assuming your driving distance is not too far 🙂
