Maybe it's just me - UNRELIABLE!

1998 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe

Review

Purchased this car when it had 35,000 miles on it and the first few years were great. Then the problems... wheel bearings, alternator, battery, ABS sensor, passenger side power window, muffler, and CONSTANTLY having to change the lights (head/brake/aux). I now also have a light knocking sound occasionally. Tires lose pressure regularly - what a pain in the rear! My new alternator is also causing my panel and headlights to flicker while I am idling. All this happened before 100,000 miles. What a shame, I thought this was supposed to be a reliable car. I think I'll try a Toyota or Lexus next and hope I will fare better. I do change my oil and do maintain my car. Maybe I was just unlucky :-(

Favorite Features

Great looks. Powerful. Relatively fuel efficient for the size of the engine.

Suggested Improvements

RELIABILITY, RELIABILITY, RELIABILITY! Headlights are ridiculously underpowered. Factory BOSE stereo system is poor - no base and weak mids.
