Acura actually mfr'd a lemon!
By jenr8er on


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


I took my 1st CL (97)to 110k w/o ever
using the warranty. Completely
different story this time around.
Nearly every recall and service
bulletin my car has been in for-from
rattles to a blown transmission. What's
worse is that while service did
everything they could on my repeated
SRS/engine light issues, we had
exhausted all resources (6 visits) and
were praying to the car gods to please
let it be fixed. Read the
recalls/TSB for 02 &
03 models-they are nearly identical.
Feeling a little sketched out by it all
and thinking maybe I should find
something else to drive til they get it
together in a year or two!!!!!

Best Features

Passing other cars going up mountain passes!!! All creature comfors are standard. :)

Worst Features

Ummmm....the "we're sorry you got hosed and want to hook you up with one of our newer models that doesn't need to be in the shop once a month" patrol!! Seriously..more steering wheel/radio controls, moonroof that goes all the way back.
