1999 Acura CL 2.3 2dr Coupe


I bought my 1999 CL 2.3 because I needed something reliable coming from a BMW. Unfortunately, my CL was in poor condition, but I got a great deal on it. To my surprise, it was in excellent mechanical condition. A little bit of elbow grease quickly brought its appearance back to life. The first thing I noticed was the excellent quality of the paint and interior materials. I couldn't believe how resilient the leather and carpet was. The paint is beautiful after some heavy buffing and the car looks new after a thorough cleaning! Mechanically, I have had zero problems. The transmission shifts smooth and engine sounds like new. I would highly recommend this car.

Best Features

Automatic climate control, keyless entry and alarm system.

Worst Features

The base (non-Bose) radio/CD is horrible. Also, lack of heated seats on the 2.3 brings chills to my spine every cold morning. I retrofitted the Bose radio from the 3.0 model and have been very happy with it.
