I fell in love with the looks of the
vehicle and had to have one.
Acceleration is good for the 2.2 model,
although I drop it into 3rd gear for
quicker acceleration at take-off and
for passing. I enjoy the solidness of
the car and it handles well. Trunk
space is great. I've never kept a car
this long but I believe I'll have a
long and happy relationship with my CL
and see how long it will run.
Maintenance is not too pricey which is
a big plus. I actually like the design
on my '97 better than the newer ones
and so do most of my friends.
I like just about everything, but I'd
have to say I like the automatic
climate control and sun-roof the best.
I have sport and luxury at the same
time so I feel like the car fits in
anywhere I go.
Comfort of front seats could be
improved. Window regulators could be
more reliable. I had to replace both of
them within several months of each
other. Speaker system isn't designed
for the best sound as speakers seem to
be in strange places.
