Acura CL Automatic Transmission Issues

(34 reports)

The automatic transmission tends to malfunction more often than in similar models. The Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.

trans is slipping starts to drive once it warms up hestitates and then slips. just bought it too off of Craigs list got to drive it not even a day =(. Can I have the recall cover it? If not where can I get a new transmission. Everything else other than the gages on the dash is perfect. It is a nice car just wish to get it fixed. Insurance is exspensive. Motor is very very strong -
My car would just revs and wont move when i have it in gear and give it gas...Only had it for about six to eight months now. does anyone know why -
When on the gas its decent.. but when i take foot off pedal to coast it start to jerk and sound like it is about to fall out. -
When shifting it will occasionally slip, the same when down shifting like the syncro is off. Acura said I need new Trans as they do not repair, $4500. I let it go still have same problem now at 124000 miles and counting -
Check light engine on and off at random time -
Trabsmission slipped, check engine light on -
The car is still not fixed. I took it to the dealer for 60K major service. Had the service done earlier. I told them that the transmission was slipping and had issues. They serviced the car and mentioned that nothing was wrong with the transmission. Now the car has major issues with transmission and is almost not drivable. My warranty expired but Acura never communicated to me about the transmission issues. I only drive the car once a week to make sure the engine, battery, etc. are in good shape. The car is in mint condition and now is useless. -
Tranmission broke at 60k and it was re-built -
I have had similar issues, after doing some research, I believe replacing the transmission is a band aid to the problem. The problem isn't the issue, it's the solenoids that control the shifting. Replace those and you should be fine depending on the resulting damage done to the clutch and gears. -
It sliping bad needs repairing -
No revers slipping in 1 2 -
Transmission slips often -
My transmission shifted hard from the day I bought the car--brand new. After many complaints, I was told "that's the car computer not sure what gear you want to be in". After driving it like that for 13 years it finally went out. I replaced it with a "Jasper" transmission costing $3600.00 including labor. Well I can't recommend....that one was out in only 1 year. Good luck! -
Same problem -
engine light has always been on for the last ten years -
There is no reverse and no speedometer too -
I am experiencing transmission problems again on my Acura CL. I have already replaced the transmission once before at 56,000 miles. The transmission begins to slip and have difficulty shifting from first to second gear and the check engine light is on. Cost me $4500 the first time as the car was just out of the warranty period. -
It slips when in drive -
Transmission went out at 63000 miles then the replacement went out at 109000!!!!!!!!! -
I bough my CL-S new in Sept 2000. In August 2004 @ 68,000 miles tranny replaced by dealer due to 3rd gear clutch slippage. In 2010 @ 126,910 six years to date after dealer replaced tranny. Tranny rebuilt due to driver side axle bearing failure. Mechanic sees a lot of case failures (cracked) on this tranny especially in Odyssey's 1999-2009 until Honda went to the Ridge tranny. -
