Yes, the transfer was done successfully, and the dealer stood by his word and saw it through on his part!

The car has been lying idle for long is my guess. After all it has been many years. I also heard from the dealer the family that owned the car have many other luxury cars and it is likely this car just stood in the parking spot for too long.

Sourcing original spares has so far not been a problem. Even Honda service centre has confirmed spares are available, though not always readily.

For the AC trouble the initial guess is the cooling coil may have rusted, leading to a gas leak. A fewonths ago I had an instance where the gas had actually come out ftom the vents, though it was a small quantity.

So I think most issues are related to disuse and age.

The car is with Select Auto for AC work. The cooling coil needs replacement, the compressor needs oil and the gas has to be refilled. A bigger than expected dent to the pocket this time of around 20k.
