2003 Acura CL 3.2 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

Review

All 3.2s have bad transmissions. When ours went bad they had the car for 30 days. So many transmissions were bad on the car throughout the country that there were no parts in the states to repair the car. The problem with the transmission has never been resolved. When your transmission goes bad (and it is a matter of when not if) you receive a rebuilt transmission that has already gone bad and been "repaired". Rather than recall the car and remedy the problem, Acura extended the warranty on the transmission to 7 years/70,000 miles. This warranty extensions hide the real problem. THIS CAR HAS A BAD TRANSMISSION AND IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE.

Favorite Features

Putting aside the fact that the car is unsafe to drive because of the bad transmission, it does have many nice creature comforts. I do like the 6 disc in dash cd player and the climate control.

Suggested Improvements

The Federal government should subject this vehicle to a mandatory safety recall and demand that the faulty transmission problem be remedied.
