#1885 of 1965 No resale value on 2001 Acura CL
Feb 24, 2006 (5:50 pm)
My wife has a 2001 CL with 13,500 miles. The car is in excellent shape. We are looking for a new car. We are finding the CL has no trade in value. The dealers are aware of the existing transmission problems, and claim the car is hard to resell. I have no problems with the car, but am wondering if I should sell it before extended trans warranty expires. Any opinions would be appreciated.

#1887 of 1965 2001 shifter stuck in park
Mar 06, 2006 (11:28 am)
Anyone experience a problem with the gearshift being stuck in park? Pressing the brake pedal normally releases it, but I now have to manually unlock it using a key or screwdriver in that little hole next to the gearshift. I'm guessing there is a switch or selenoid not working. Any history on this... and any $$ estimate?
#1888 of 1965 Flush transmission?
Mar 09, 2006 (7:54 pm)
I just bought a used Acura CL 97 with 116,000 miles. The first and second shift feels not smooth, especially when driving in the morning when the car is cold. One technician suggests to flush transmission right away, but the other suggests not to do so until it turns to be worse, because the flush may make things worse.
Anybody here has similar problem? Any suggestions what I should do?

does ne think that the next gen accord will bring fourth a new cl to be built off an accord coupe and be designed to look like a tl or big csx coupe? A convertible sounds to be in the future to battle the vw eos, volvo c70 or upcoming 325ci. Honda/acura really needs a 4 seater convertible.
#1890 of 1965 SOLD YOUR CL YET???

Might be time to turn this site into "how much did you get for your CL ?"
I'm considering selling my very-clean 01 type-S, silver non-Nav. What are you getting out there for yours?
#1891 of 1965 Cabin filter

Does anyone know how to locate the cabin filter on a 2001 CLS. I cannot find the info on its location?

Cabin filter is behind the glove box. You need to remove the glove box, then actually cut a piece of plastic behind it. The old filter (2 pieces) can then be replaced. The piece of plastic you release by cutting is then turned sideways and re-used to hold the new filters in place with screws. I know this sounds confusing, but the replacement filter I bought at Autozone came with a printed instruction page, making it very easy to do. Check this site for instructions:
It's for the TL, but is the same for the CL.
