1999 Acura CL 2.3 2dr Coupe

Review

Purchased it used off a lease in 2001. An attractive coupe, comfortable interior and good gas mileage. But has potentially serious handling problems on wet roads. Even with limited amount of rain, it is hard to control over speeds of 55-60; has tendency to hydroplane. (My Acura Legend in contrast is rock steady.) I have to slow down to 50 to keep the car steady. (The tires are new and the inflation is at the recommended levels.) Even on dry roads, it has a tendency to float around - there is a constant need to control the steering; a pain when driving long distances on the highway. I wonder what's up with the suspension, aerodynamics or ??
