Default 1996 Honda

I have been having problems with my Air conditioner in 1996 honda accord. Is
this problem similar in other honda vehicles.
I am thinking about getting a honda pilot. Does this also have similar air
conditioner problems.
Toyota seems to have better ac than Hondas ?

What type of problem?

> Is this problem similar in other honda vehicles.


Hard to say when we don't know what problem.

See above two responses.

> Toyota seems to have better ac than Hondas ?


In what way? Or was that a statement rather than a question?

Pretty vague. What do you consider a 'problem' when it comes to AC? We
can't read your mind from here . . too much psychic static due to

Problem with Honda ACs is does not cool very fast when compared with
Toyotas.
Also i have spent $400 to fix it once and it broke again. I think it is a
routine problem with other
Hondas. It is some kind of leak.

Since the replacement of freon as the refrigerant in the mid 90's, all (or
certainly the majority of) A/C units don't cool fast compared to the freon
charged units. I've owned a lot of Honda vehicles over the years and I have
not experienced any problems with the A/C units in any of them.

There was a chronic failure of a seal in earlier Accords that may have
included that car. My dealer fixed mine well past the warranty period, and
yours may also. Mine was a '94.
Also, make sure your circulation selector switch/button is set to
recirculate inside air, and not set to let outside air in. A/C dehumidifies
as well as cools and it couldn't keep up in that effort if you are trying to
cool and dehumidify outside air. Voice of personal experience with 5
Accords.
