If your Honda Civic AC is not working, then you will probably need the Lemon Law Department at the Auto Fraud Legal Center.  The 2016-2020 Honda Civic (2- and 4-Door), 2017-2021 Honda Civic (Hatchback) and 2017-2021 Civic Type R cars.   These Civics use R-1234yf refrigerant which is supposed to be more friendly to the environment than R-134a refrigerant. However, a class action against Honda alleges the AC stops working because the system can’t handle the R-1234yf refrigerant, causing the AC to stop working to cool the Civic cabin.  Leaks in the condensers or compressors cause AC problems, but the plaintiffs claim failures can also occur to the evaporators and discharge and suction lines.

Some Honda dealers are charging consumers with a diagnostic fee – even though their Civic should be considered under warranty.  It’s also being reported that Honda continues to use the same defective part when completing these repairs.

Rather than paying a diagnostic fee, you should call Honda and demand that it buy back your car, and then contact the Lemon Law Department at the Auto Fraud Legal Center to see if we can make this a reality for you.

If we accept your case, we ask Honda to pay any attorney fees and costs that are incurred on your behalf.  We have been representing consumers in California for over thirty years.  Contact Jeff Le Pere to address any potential lemon law claim or dealer misrepresentation claim you may have.
