Don't pay!

Honda know this is due to a defective OEM condenser. Don't pay that ridiculous amount. ****, find a new service center cause this one is trying to rob you.

Google 10th gen civic AC problems and gather evidence. Someone else posted that there's a class action lawsuit being organized in the US in another thread related to the Civic no AC.

Good luck.

I just had my AC compressor? replaced on my 2018 Sport Touring at only 7500 miles. Luckily covered by warranty, but it would have cost around 17 to $1,800 if I had to pay for it myself. My local Pensacola dealer had the part in one day, & it took about 3 hours, with one hour letting it cool down to be able to work on it so the mechanic didn't burn his hands or arms on the hot engine area he had to get into. Sounds like someone is really trying to rip you off! Get other estimates, especially if not under warranty, & you are paying.

Dropped the car off overnight and the technician called me at 7:30AM; 30 minutes before my appointment while I drove the work to confirm receipt of my parent's Civic. Not fifteen minutes later, he called again to report a leaking condenser. Did not mention the word "defect" and said that it was covered under the Extended Warranty our family purchased.

Part is backordered throughout Canada - long lead time. I am to pick up the car and bring it back in when they receive the part and notify me.

It was all over the phone and no electronic trace at the moment.

I had ac issues two times on my 16 civic. Issue started with no cold air and so took it to dealer for a freon refill which cost 550 plus labor. After a yr, issue came back and took it to the dealer and they said i had a damaged condenser and compressor. Was quoted 2k for repairs and i declined. My warranty had expired so no free fixes. I bought parts myself and replaced it and now i just recieved the bs letter that honda is aware of this ac problem and is extending the warranty.

I received a notice of extended warranty on my condenser for my '16.
they extended the warranty to 10 years due to an issue with the corrosion protection coating.

previous owner had the condenser replaced once already on warranty

Terrible price... I hope you found another service that was able to fix your air conditioner instead of replacing it completely. Your situation reminded me of the case with my home air conditioner, when I was told that I had to replace it entirely and they asked almost 7000 dollars for a new AC along with the work. Of course I refused and found another service that provided aircon chemical overhaul. This way I was able to save a huge amount of money and repair my old air conditioner instead of buying a new one. I hope you do the same.

Not long ago, I bought a conditioner at a pretty good price, but after that, the company I took it from wholly disappointed me. Why? Because the device broke down a few weeks after its purchase. The most interesting thing is that the problem with the conditioner was not big and it was easy to repair. As a rule, the company I took the product from had to provide me with a service that would remove the issue, but they refused. I was shocked. I started calling all my acquaintances to recommend a good master, and I was lucky to find Aircon Leaking Water - Aircon Dripping Water | SoCool Pte Ltd who on the same day I called, came to me and solved my issue. So far, the conditioner works perfectly.

I think that the dealer set up a higher price than expectedI think that the dealer set up a higher price than expected. I suppose that paying over $1000 for an AC is a waste of money because eventually, you will replace it. In your case, you should visit several places with similar services to check the prices. After analyzing the market, you can easily say whether the dealer lies to you or not. Anyway, I recommend you to visit majorcooling.com to check their prices. I replaced my AC using their services, and they can give you 20% off for your first installment.

Anyone know a good non dealership A/C Place in the Toronto area

Here is a timeline of what happened with my 2016 Civic

At 105,860KM My A/C/ condenser was replaced by Honda Queensway under extended warranty on the unit as my air conditioner had failed.

At 106,010KM((less than 200km later) my air conditioner was again not working and I was told by Honda Queensway that there was a leak found at the Shrader valve on the low pressure evac line. For some bizarre reason this was not caught after the condenser was replaced and the A/C system thoroughly checked, but magically failed 200km later. This cost me $450
At 106,329KM(300km after the 2nd fix) my air conditioner once again does not work.I bring in back again to Honda Queensway and I am told that there is a leak at the compressor, and that the compressor,coil, and clutch need to be replaced and am quoted an amount of $3,044.22 to replace with OEM parts.

Anyone know if its likely that they are going to extend the warranty to include the compressor,coil, and clutch, this is brutal
