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.

I love this car

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Acura CL 2.3 Premium 2dr Coupe

This is my first car, drove it on my permit since the day I got it and now driving it on my license for 2 months. This car is pretty fun to drive as my first car with a 5 speed manual. Reliability? This car wrote the book on it. Which is what every Honda/Acura has come to know and love. It has 267k miles and runs like new, no major repairs on it ever. Every one of my friends says it runs like new as well. It's pretty quick, I've beaten a few v6 mustangs, older maxima, and mitsubishi eclipse, so it's not slow. Overall an amazing car for the value and an amazing first car. It's very luxurious, not like driving in a super light hatchback Civic.

11 years and going

I've had my CL for almost 12 years and it's still a fine piece of machinery ( 206,780 miles thus far). Over the years, I had very few "major" repairs to the car such as exhaust system replacement. It still maintains many original parts. If you have an opportunity to buy this car, you should do it (especially if it has low mileage). It will pay for itself in a short period of time.
