She's A Beauty BUT Transmission Issues GALORE!
By pr_diva2012 on


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


I purchased this vehicle in 2005 certified pre-owned from an Acura dealership in NJ with less then 40K miles... she lasted me up until a couple days ago (currently 222k miles.) The car is a great ride and it went the distance but the only thing is that I had problems with the transmission... I had to replace the original transmission in 2008 (which was a doozy) and just a couple days ago, my maintenance required light came on... went to go check it out and ofcourse the trans is on it's way out. This is my 2nd owned Acura... I am going to bid farewell to Acura and go to the Lexus side of the street.

Best Features

Smooth ride, great factory sound system, bucket seats, sleek and sexy look...

Worst Features

Acura has to get it right with building a durable transmission...
