This is my second Acura - liked my
original Integra very much, but the
2.2cl is sportier and more fun to
drive. It is thoroughly reliable and
quick to respond and easy to handle. I
have only had the usual repairs, brake
pads + replacing the timing belt at
The 1997 2.2cl is like a reliable old,
good friend - ready to go anywhere
cheerfully. Its styling is still sharp
and it has a timeless clasic feel to it.
Drawbacks: Great in snow but not as
great in rain around turns & going
uphill.The doors are heavy & open wide
& low. Otherwise - a real workhorse.
