#1945 of 1965 Cannot open my driver side door
Nov 05, 2008 (11:18 am)
I currently own an 1999 acura 3.0 cl, and cannot open my driver side door. I closed the door own day while inside and could not open the door from the inside, and out side. When I use my keyless entry remote, the lock opens (can also hear it open) but I just can't open it using both inside and outside handle). Someone said they don't think it is the fuse since the remote opens the lock. I now have to go via the passenger door which is very annoying. Can someone please give me a clue as to how to resolve this issue? Thanks for your anticipated cooperation.

I had the same thing happen to me. The only thing to do is [shudder] go to the dealer and have them get the door open. It might have to be replaced as mine had to be replaced to the tune of $700.
#1947 of 1965 buying a car, thinking about Acura CL Sport
Apr 09, 2009 (1:03 pm)
Hey guys, I'm 19 and am currently looking to buy my second car - one that will be reliable and will be driven a below average amount. One of my prospects is an 03 Acura CL type S, it's fully loaded including the Nav, 6-Disc in Dash CD Changer, and 6-Speed Manual. It is in excellent shape but I'm worried it has too many miles. The mileage clocks in at about 105,000 and is priced at $8888. I know we'll be able to work the price down but I'm worried that the mileage might be a problem in which the clutch might be done soon or there could be serious problems with the engine soon. I plan on keeping the car for 4 years as I'm a college student and am wondering if you guys can give some in-sight whether it will be reliable enough since it has so many miles. Thanks guys.
#1948 of 1965 1999cl are they galvanized bodies

Just bought a 99CL researched where its from and its from the east.I was just wundering if the 99s have galvanized body parts(fenders,1/4 panels and such)as they seem to use alot of salt in the winters out east and are subject to rusting on the older cars.Thanks sr123

I've owned my '03 CL 6-speed for 3 years now, and I've never had an issue with it. I have 75K miles on it, and the biggest maintenance due is the timing belt, but that's a pretty routine item. If the original clutch has lasted 100K miles, that says something good about Acura quality. That may need to be replaced as regular maintenance. Prior to this I drove a '95 Accord (traded it with 215K miles for the CL), and prior to that, I had a Maxima which I drove to 225K miles. Says something about Japanese quality.

I have A 99 cl 3.0 with auto trannie and I am sorry I bought it (off my sister no less). The driver side door lock froze ($700), the trannie went so I had it rebuilt ($2550), Paint job seems to be substandard, my celica after 10 years didn't have so many nicks in the paint. I'll never buy an Acura or a Honda ever again. Even after rebuilding the trannie, it still has problems in 1st and 2nd in stop and go traffic. Stay away from this car!!!!!!

I have a 1999 Acura CL 3.0 and its transmission just died. I just drove this for 130K miles and provided this is a Japanese car I am shocked to see this issue.
I will never by an Acura again.
