1998 Acura CL 2.3 2dr Coupe

Review

I own this car for 5 years and never had any electrical problems, but something is wrong with Acura/Honda's 1997-1998 transmission. I bumped into another car lightly (no dents or paint chipping off, no damage whatsoever), then my transmission acted awkwardly and shifts very hard. The transmission were free of charge though. This didn't only happened to my car, it also happened to 2 of my other friends who owns a 1997 prelude and 1998 Accord. Same symtoms from VERY light head-ons. BEWARE!!! Honda might be trying to cover up this problem.

Best Features

Good car overall, except for the transmission.

Worst Features

FIX that transmission!!!
