Review of the 1998 Acura CL

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    This is one luxury car that won't leave you sitting at your mechanic's garage. Based on the stupendously reliable Honda Accord, the 2.3CL should run for miles and miles.

  • Cons

    Honda Accord: same perfume, different bottle.

  • What's New for 1998

    A new 2.3L engine replaces last year's 2.2L unit. All CL models get a revised grille and new alloy wheels.

Awesome beginner car

Vehicle: 1998 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe

I bought this car six months ago, glad I did. Didn't really know what I was looking for in a car but got this one cheap, because it had been wrecked. No internal damage though. Runs great and reliably, good acceleration. Wonderful handling, I had the tendency to take corners at high speeds and this machine took my abuse with grace and function, on multiple occasions, and I love the leather interior and effective air conditioning and power moonroof. I will never own a car that doesn't have a black leather interior or faux leather (at the least). Very comfortable.




Sweet ride!!!

I've only had it for a week, and it's super fun to drive! Bought it with 97,500 miles on it for $5800, worth every penny so far!




Great car

This is a fun car to drive. It has held up well against time. Very few problems, considering its age. People come up and ask me if this is a new car. The paint looks new. I hope to put a couple more hundred thousand miles on it!

I bought this '98 car new in 3/99. Now I have 140,000 miles on it. Car is trouble-free, very reliable, and a great performer. Apart from usual maintenance, this car is very inexpensive to own and operate. Still solid after all this time.




Great car great value

Vehicle: 1998 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe

Bought this car new and have had only one problem with it. The passenger-side windows attenuator went bad 2 times. One time it was covered under warranty. The 2nd time it cost $350 to replace at the dealer. This is a great car. Very reliable and dependable. Somewhat sporty and has great torque to blast you out of tight spots. Inexpensive to maintain (it really is a somewhat upgraded Accord Coupe).




I'll never give it up!

Vehicle: 1998 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe

I bought this car over seven years ago, but it seems like yesterday. It still looks great and is very reliable. It has a luxurious cabin and smooth ride that helps me unwind on the way home from work. It has features that you normally have to pay much more for. I'll never sell this car, keeping it in my family until it quits, and I don't ever see that happening!
