#62 of 71 Problem with Transmission with 2001 CL-S
Feb 01, 2002 (12:51 pm)
I have recently went in due to shifting problems with my transmission (delay from 2nd to 3rd). They discovered a leak in my transmission as well as a howling sound when I drive. They are replacing the transmission with a new one. However I have called another dealership and they told me they had 3 cars in due to transmission problems as well.
Anyone else? Hope it's not a design problem.

maybe your problem with Ford was your inability to communicate in the English language. Have you ever tried spell check?

#65 of 71 Love my CL-S
Feb 23, 2002 (3:00 pm)
My 2001 CL-S has 30,000 miles on it and I haven't had a problem yet. I cannot believe it, having had about 20 GM cars in my time. My Corvettes spent more time at the dealer than in my garage.
I have heard people say, "Buy foreign and you will never go back to domestic." I am a believer.
The car rides like a dream. And I love the Navi System, but $162 for a new disc is a bit much after spending $2000 for the System.

I agree with you. Although I have to say that until I bought my 99 Chrysler 300M, "Motor Trend's Car of the Year", my domestic cars were fine. I had no problems with them until the Chrysler.
My 2001 CL-S will be a year old on 3/28. I have had 12,500 perfect, trouble-free miles! I love this car.
#67 of 71 3.2 TL Windshield problem??
Mar 20, 2002 (8:04 pm)
I own a 2001 3.2 TL. About 1 month ago I noticed a small crack in the windshield in the lower right hand corner. There is no obvious mark from where a rock might have hit. The fracture seems to be expanding. Has anyone else had this type of problem?
#68 of 71 Acura's Golden years?
Mar 20, 2002 (11:06 pm)
"For people that never owned Acuras from the "Golden
Years" simply don't know how good these cars used to
be. The current RL is the last one of the Made in Japan
breed and it even doesn't compare to the old Legends."
This is an intriguing statement from a former post. I don't mind buying a car with a few years on it, and always love to hear from people who say, "these were the best years in that model line" For those of us not able or willing to pay the MSRP and drive off the lot in a cloud of depreciation money following us down the street, I would like to know exactly what this post means. What years were the "golden years of Acura" Thanks.

Someone posted awhile back about what he felt was horrendous gas mileage. Well, I do almost 100% city driving, so lots of idling and stop and go. And I have NEVER gotten over 20 mpg with IMPERIAL gallons which I believe work out to be about 16 mpg with US gallons. A previous V6 car that I had, a '95 Maxima, gave me similar city mileage. So I think the culprit is city driving and the other person shouldn't feel so bad. Also, at almost 3600 lbs, the CL-S is actually quite a porky beast, so in stop-and-go traffic, gas mileage will suffer.
PS: I predict the next post will be from fastdriver declaring his love for the CL-S! )

HEY! How'd you know that? 13,490 miles and 1 year old in 2 days! NO problems.
