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