I own a 2016 4 liter Accord Sport with CVT transmission. The problem that I’m having is when I accelerate from a stop with the AC engaged, the car hesitates. When I disengage the AC the car accelerates normally. What I have noticed is that the AC Compressor seems to always want to engage just as I accelerate. It’s quite irritating and frustrating not to mention dangerous in my opinion in case I need to accelerate in a hurry and the car wants to bog down. As said I mostly notice the hesitation just as I accelerate when the AC compressor kicks in. I was told that it’s normal for a 4 liter engine to behave like that since the compressor “robs” the 4 liter engine of power upon acceleration but why does the AC Compressor need to engage at that particular time always? Is there a way to retard the AC Compressor as to when it engages? By the way I don’t use the Econo feature and the car temperature gets cold when the AC is engaged. When I’m cruising there doesn’t seem to be any noticeable hesitation or bucking when the compressor kicks in. Glad to hear anyone’s advice or if anyone is experiencing the same problem.
