1997 Acura CL 2.2 Premium 2dr Coupe
Review
We bought this CL with 62,000 miles on it and it was 7 years old. It is premium coupe with spoiler, leather seats, sunroof and climate control with CD player. At 80,000 miles, the clutch went out. While in the shop, they found the rear main seal leaking, the plastic radiator leaking, the front CV joints shot and several other smaller problems. Cost about $1,800 to fix. At 105,000 miles, the starter went out and they found the ring gear on the flywheel was shot and loose. Another $400. The security system quit working. We have had 4 other Honda cars, and none of them needed this kind of expensive repairs, even when they were over 100,000 miles. Don' think we recommend a used CL.
Favorite Features
Styling, engine acceleration and fuel mileage, climate control, leather seats.
Suggested Improvements
CL has been discountinued. Acura's new models are getting great reviews and are recommended, but an older CL may not be that reliable
