Review of the 1997 Acura CL

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    This is one luxury car that won't leave you sitting at your mechanic's garage. Based on the stupendously reliable Honda Accord, the CL should run for miles and miles.

  • Cons

    This car looks a little too much like a Honda Accord to be seriously regarded as a luxo-coupe.

  • What's New for 1997

    Like many Acura products, the CL is based on a Honda platform, in this case the Honda Accord. The CL's sights are aimed squarely at BMW's 3 Series coupes.

Vehicle: 1997 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe

Great car. I have had many years of enjoyment with this car. It has been fairly inexpensive to maintain and extremely dependable. It,s looks have held up fine, as the vehicle did not change that much over the years. Overall, a very good buy for the price.

I bought this car new since 1997. It currently now has 161000. I get around 24 mpg. My only complain is that the electrical system has problems over the years, such as bad starter, alternator, ignitor, to name a few.
