Hello, 2 years ago I bought a 2002/ 4 Cyl/2-Door Honda Civic Coupe DX (now with 184,000 km) with the pre-requisite of having working A/C. It was Sept.2010 and I realized that the A/C was not functioning. My mechanic who also sold me the car said that he would take care of the problem the following summer. He tried topping up the freon but stated that it was a bigger problem: probably compressor related. It’s now a year later (I went through the entire summer last year with no A/C) and the problem is still not fixed. He’s claiming that when he sold me the car, the A/C was working (but it never has) and has said that a rock could possibly have hit the compressor and caused it to not function anymore. Is this at all a valid claim? I am a cancer survivor and the medication I take causes severe hot flashes (thus the need for the A/C). He promised me a car with working A/C but has not delivered. I think that he should cover all costs related to repairing the compressor. I’m looking for an educated opinion on the matter. Thank you very much, Dawn B.
