First thing to do is check the fluid level. If it is full, or burnt, take it to a transmission shop for a proper diagnosis.

I have a 2001 CL that had a problem of the transmission slipping in 2nd gear. It would take off and it would slip until it caught 3rd gear. I took it to the Acura dealership and they replaced the whole transmission free of charge. I am assuming that you have an auto trans. Mine did this at 50,000 miles. My CL is certified. Take it to the dealership and if your mileage is within reason you might be able to get Honda to cover the price of the repair or maybe at least part of it. There are phone numbers you can call in order to lodge a complaint. One time my SRS light went on and they told me that the computer box under the passenger seat wasn't covered by warranty. I called and complained. Since I kept up the maintenance on the car at the Acura dealer they went ahead and replaced it for free, (a $400.00 part). Never hurts to bitch a little. Good luck.

you should definately get this car to a trans shop. if the problem is internal to the trans, you will have to decide how much you like this car, because rebuilding your trans or changing it out with a factory reconditioned tranny will likely cost you about 3500 bucks maybe more. at this mileage you should be considering how much you enjoy your acura. and one other note, acuras frequently come with fluid that has not had any red dye added like we do in the US. fluid from many imported vehicles may start out as yellow or brown, the color our atf is before we add red dye.
