2001 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


I bought my cl type-s used 4 years ago with just a little over 100k miles on it. It has been better than I expected but this car has a serious transmission issue. I've had to replace 2, the first was well over $2k and the second was fixed under warranty and now at 215,000 miles I'm looking at getting a third!!! If your thinking about buying one used beware that your gonna have to replace the transmission at some point. Other than that issue this car has been great, it's fun to drive with very comfortable seats for long trips. Verdict: I'm selling it and getting a 07 TL, why? U can't beat honda and acura value!!!'m selling and getting a 07 TL as mileage is pretty decent too. To sum it up,

Favorite Features

Ok, there's a lot I love about this car!!! Seat comfort, driving position (have to own a honda/acura to know) bose audio, heated seats, 2 person memory seats, auto mirror at night, auto reverse tilt mirror, navi system, auto moving seats for rear, audio controls on steering wheel, xenon headlights, and powerful engine. at night, reverse tilt m

Suggested Improvements

This car is discontinued of course but the only thing I didn't like about it was controlling the a/c on the touchscreen navi and of course the horrible transmission!!!
