1998 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

Handling, accelerating and interior.


Worst Features

Fuel filter should be on the bottom of the car, it is very hard to replace it where is is currently located. Close to the firewall under the hood.

1998 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe


Review

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!


Best Features

Power/acceleration. Effortless freeway driving. Accessories: sunroof; seat-warmers; 6 CD changer, auto A/C, etc. Simple functionality. Plain, good-looking appearance.


Worst Features

Smaller turn radius (for easier parallel parking). Smoother transition from 1st to 2nd gear. Fuel economy (not as good on the 3.0L). Driver seat belt gets caught up with seat release.

Review

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!


Best Features

Styling


Worst Features

Outside temp reading would be nice. Tranny is a little rough.

Review

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.


Best Features

Simplicity of the car, functionality of the interior, predictable reliability, great power and handling for both city and highway driving. Very comfortable. Great service through any dealer.


Worst Features

Sound system could be better. The sound system in my Civic LX is better than my Acura.

Review

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).


Best Features

Simplicity of the car. Instrument panel. Accessibility to features.


Worst Features

Can't think of anything! :)
