1997 Acura CL 2.2 Premium 2dr Coupe

Review

Bought the car new when it came out in '96 as a '97 model. Since day 1, it has been plagued by squeeks and rattles. Dealership still couldn't fix these after 6 attempts. I enjoy driving the car (when it runs properly), but has been the most aggravating car (and least reliable) I have ever owned. Aside from a ridiculous amount of rattles in the dash, the driver side window motor was replaced, radiator fan, oxygen sensor, transmission.... Will probably never buy another Acura.... and I previously owned 3 other Honda products which NEVER gave me such grief.

Best Features

Still looks good, and drives well (when it's not acting up). Quality interior materials.

Worst Features

Improve the build quality! My other car is a Lexus, and the difference between these cars is night and day (and the Lexus dealership kisses my butt much more!)
