2009 Honda Accord coupe with A/C problem. A/C blows dangerously hot air while at a stop. The air continues to blow hot air until you start driving again. The temperatures quickly rises to unknown temperature but it feels like we are in a sweat box. May pose threat to health due to extended periods of extreme heat. The vehicle has been to a local Honda dealer six times now since May 2010. Many hoses have been reported to have leaks, condensor reported to be bad, compressor reported bad, clutch reported bad, low freon reported, pipes reported to be bad and seals on pipes and hoses reported leaking. It is suspected that the dealer and Honda manufacture has not found a solution. Both parties are in communication with one another with no results thus far. The dealer has now had the vehicle for two working weeks as of 10-22-2010 with no explanation to what the problem is. The dealer has replicated the A/C blowing hot air numerous times. Overall, since May 2010, the dealer has had possession of the vehicle for approx. 30 days during the six dealer visits and repairs. Online research may show extensive A/C problems with many of the Honda models. Further evaluation is requested as hot blowing A/C air pose a health threat especially in a warm climate such as Florida's summer.

I had just bought a 2010 Honda Accord which I had purchase in October 20 09, 3 weeks old approximately. I get in my vehicle to turn the air condition on November 1 and found out that it only blew out hot air. I take it to the local Honda dealer, they stated a pebble or foreign object got up to the condenser and punctured it which made it unable to function. The cost of repair is about 600 dollars. For Honda to be number one for good value with there cars it is not apparent now. I purchased the extended warranty and it is not covered due to road debris not manufacture malfunction. This problem seems to consistent with a lot of their vehicles not only do I have make monthly payments on this car now I am paying for it to be repair when it is not even a month old.
