Falling out of love with my Acura
By Dr. Rich on
Vehicle1997 Acura CL 2.2 Premium 2dr Coupe
ReviewThere were so many things to love about my 97CL: handling, performance, good looks. But alas, during the past 6 months, I've had to replace the starter, AC condenser & evaporator and routine maintenance are costing almost $3,500. I only have 82,000 miles and I really pampered my CL. Sad to say, I don't love this car anymore. Other people will rave about its reliability, but that has not been my experience, and the cost to repair is hideous. My last 2 cars (1989 Camry 146,000 miles and 1994 Nissan Quest 163,000 miles) were not nearly as expensive to maintain. Maybe I expected too much, but I thought this car would last longer without so many repairs!
Best FeaturesStylish good looks, excellent handling, especially taking hard curves.
Worst FeaturesVery costly to maintain, and not as reliable as other Japanese products.
