My 2002 Acura 3.2 CL S-type has eaten its second transmission and it has only 58K on it. The first one went out at 38K. All Acura seems to be doing with this "recall" is replacing the transmission with a new one of the same faulty part. I know two other people who have had at least 2 transmissions in this same year/make of car. For any new car, this is just unforgiveably lousy reliability and quality. (especially for the price range that this car was in as a new car.) I will never buy another Acura product again after this experience.
The engine is powerful and smooth, very comfortable interior.
Don't replace a poorly designed part that is broken . . . with the same poorly designed part and call that a "fix." perhaps more thoroughly test such a major car part before unleashing it on the market. There are year models after this that have transmission issues, too.
