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.

Best 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.

Worst Features

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