2001 Acura CL Recalls (Recent)

Drive Train, April 27, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda and Acura are recalling numerous 2001–2004 vehicles to inspect for an internal automatic transmission fault. This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow. For more information, please call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.

2001 Acura CL Reviews

Mine's got just a little over a 100K miles on it. Have had a nagging electrical issue that I hope is finally resolved. Other than that, the engine is strong, the automatic transmission has been rebuilt due to the wonderful recall and the overall build quality is pretty good. My car is lowered so the handling is tremendous and still gets great mpg out on the freeway.
