2004, 5AT, All service done at Cale Yarborough Honda, Florence SC with OEM parts. (I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DEALER, for service or a new vehicle)
Compressor grenade @ 85k, never been the same since.
Replaced High and Low pressure lines, evaporator, dryer, compressor, condenser, and all small parts between including all o-rings ($3800 parts/labor)
Again at 110k I charged, new compressor ($700, parts/labor)
Just recently @ 132k I changed condenser and recharge. ($600 parts/labor)
Since the original failure I have never experienced "Ice cold AC". This summer will be the second South Carolina summer with no AC and I drive about 1.5 hours a day to/from work. Really makes me reconsider ever buying Honda/Acura again judging from the way they have handled this so far.
I can only wish/pray/hope nobody has to go through what I have. I'm almost at the point where I have invested as much into the AC system as what a dealer would give me trade in. Sometimes I get pure heat, sometimes a mutant luke warm high humidity ass sweat like temperature, and rarely I get AC for about 15 minutes. Just long enough to say "ahh thats better" before the heat kicks back in. I stopped cleaning my interior because I have to ride with the windows down so often my black interior is almost always dusty/dirty.
If I can talk a local dealer down it will be getting traded in for an 08 speed 3 with about 70k on the clock. Until the next s2k like vehicle comes out or unless they turbo the ILX, it's good bye Acura/Honda. Sorry for the rant, just sucks when you think of how much $$$ has been burned into that AC system.
