Asked by Aug 23, 2016 at 11:26 AM about the 2008 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've replaced the compressor, condenser and have had my air charged & freon added numerous times and my air still doesn't work in my 2008 Honda Civic. Blows warm air. One Mechanic even changed the air filter and supposedly repaired a stuck door for $265. Another mechanic said there is no door and that he took advantage of and ripped me off! Problem still exists after all this and over $1,500 later. After reading all the problems other owners have had also I agree Honda should have a recall on their air conditioners! Not to mention the Right and Left CV joints were replaced at about 35,000 to 40,000 miles and the passengers side door lock broke, the storage counsel also broke! Seriously, I will never buy a Honda again!

Ac may be as simple as a ac relay or main ac switch is bad,don,t take it to a regular mechanic for ac repair,make sure you find one that is AC certified.

Honda does NOT need an A/C recall, the hacks working on them need to be recalled. If you take your car to a certified mechanic that is certified in A/C repair the A/C can be fixed.

There is an A/C component called a drier/receiver which if it needs replacing it would keep your system from functioning properly.
