Accord 4-cyl

Since the first incident I have had a clicking noise coming from the ac on the right side vent on my 2009 Honda Accord. It is October of 2011 and the dealer has now replaced the same blower motor 3 times. It alleviates the issue, only for it to return. The dealer has no other explanation. Also, I have replaced 2 door actuator motors. This car was bought in December of 2009 and it is October of 2011. I will not buy another Honda due to having issues occur repeatedly and so soon after a new purchase. Obviously brakes have to be fixed again and again.

I have a 2009 Honda Accord. I began having problems with the A/C not cooling, so I took to the dealership for assessment. I was informed that a line was not working and I had a freon leak. They placed dye in the fluid to determine where the leak originated. They determined it was coming from the condenser. This part is located in the grill of the car and isn't protected in any way and they decided it had been damaged, without proof, from something I had hit, such as a rock. They then inform me that my full warranty does not cover it, and informed me it would cost $432 to repair. They also cannot guarantee that it will not occur again and again. The freon continues to leak and will not cool the car. It also causes a foul smell to come into the car. I do not believe consumers should be responsible for paying to replace a part that is put in a place that is vulnerable to debris or anything, without protecting it in some way.

Ac condenser failure. Which stops working air conditioner and defrosting. A pebble or something can hit the condenser and make a hole. Mfr don't want repair it during warranty period or can offer any remedies to prevent it from happening.
