#197 of 1965 2001 CL with Nav.
Mar 13, 2001 (1:24 pm)
My wife and I just picked up our 2001 CL on March 10th. We had a great experience at Tustin Acura in CA. We got it for less than $400.00 over invoice(sorry Minnesota). I'm not used to having any problems with Honda products but This CL has a few. It's black on black and there are a lot of scratches on the paint. The Nav system didn't work the way I had seen it before and I found out that I have an old disc. The SRS light stays on continuously on the instrument panel. I'm taking it back for the scratches the light and the disc. The dealer told me the car had been on the lot since May, 2000. Unfortunately, I didn't find out until I noticed the disc problem. I'm confident the dealer will remedy my problems when I bring it back to them. If not..... I'll be back.

I agree that the car is not perfect but the value-for-the-dollar is excellent!
Went to the dealer to have a fog light and wipers replaced yesterday. All were free of charge. One more reason to buy an Acura.
#199 of 1965 negotiating the spoiler
Mar 15, 2001 (11:51 am)
I've received a good quote for the CL-S, just a couple hundred over invoice. But the dealer is not willing to negotiate on the spoiler and is charging full MSRP for it. Now shouldn't this, my only option, be negotiable? Thanks.

Honda's packaging is probably works well for the potential buyers and for Honda. The more options that you have to purchase, the more expensive it is for the manufacturers to keep track and install. Anyway, I am happy that we still have enough choices in cars to complicate our life
Hmmmm... charging full price for the spoiler??? Forget them. Find another dealer or buy a good aftermarket spoiler for significantly less. One of the thing you might want to have is the all-weather mat. I just love having that.
#201 of 1965 Any Help with moonroof problems?
Mar 15, 2001 (5:09 pm)
I bought a 01 CL-S in October and love it. Except for the rattle in the moonroof. It has rattled from day one and my dealer does not seem to be know what to do about it. I have had back to the dealer twice for lubrication. (the last time for special "NSX grease") Fortunately it does not rattle with the cover closed, but with spring coming I would like to be able to open the cover. The rattle seems to get worse when it is warm outside. Is anyone else having this problem?
I love everything else about the car, I have been getting a consistant 27MPG. My dad has a new Lincoln LS (V8) he thinks he can take me. I would love to run it against him.

I've read that earlier 2001 CL models and some Accords have that same problem. It should be fixed by a good dealer and apparently yours is not. You might want to scroll through the posts to get some answer.... maybe from another website as stated in some older posts.
#203 of 1965 Lease Deals on CL-S?
Mar 16, 2001 (12:50 pm)
Is anyone aware of any current lease deals on the CR-S? I am interested in a 36mo lease, 12K miles/yr, and no more than $2K out of pocket. I am not sure what kind of payment I may be able to negotiate on a CL-S. The only option I would want to add is a spoiler.
Mar 16, 2001 (2:50 pm)
I just bought a 01 CL-S last week. I have a question about the car I had. When I stop on a red light, idle for a while, my car will jerk slightly and the engine will work just like turning to rest mode ( from the engine sound I heard ). Is this normal? Does anyone with CL type S have this situation?

try turning off your A/C
#206 of 1965 2001 Acura CL - Windshield
Mar 16, 2001 (11:43 pm)
I just brought my new 2001 Acura CL into the dealership to have the windshield replaced. The Acura person described the problem as "rippling" in the windshield. I drove off in a loaner CL that had the same problem. Then I talked to a friend that has an identical CL and he said it was the anti-reflective coating!?! Has anyone else noticed the rippling? I notice it on the passenger side when I am in the driver's seat. I also notice it when I walk up to my car (10-15 away) and look at the windshield area from an angle. Straight lines are distorted.
