2001 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

In 2001 if you wanted power, reliability, comfort, good looks and fuel economy, CL-S was clearly the best buy. The car makes 1,000 foot elevation climbs in the Rockies seem like the flats of Kansas. 68,000 miles and no problems. No sense trading it in; this will be my first car over 100,000 miles since my 73 Dodge.


Favorite Features

Bucket seats, 260 hp, 25mpg., always starts, low maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

Paint that shines (2005 TL is no better).

2001 Acura CL 3.2 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I purchased my 01' CL Certified in September 2002. I fell in love with it then and am still in love with it now. At the time, I was also looking at the Lexus IS, but it felt like I was cramped up in an upgraded version of my Civic SI. The CL has all the luxurious interior features, a powerful engine so it is at a great value. The transmission was recalled, but Acura replaced it at their cost. I've been a CL owner for 3 years now and don't even have an itch to look at other cars because I'm very happily satisfied. When I'm in the market to purchase a new car, it would definitely be another Acura hands down... Perhaps the TL. ;)


Favorite Features

3.2L VTec engine, Heated Leather Seats (esp the driver's seat), large interior cavity, handling, dependable, Bose 6 disc cd changer, huge trunk space, feels heavy and safe.


Suggested Improvements

Absolutely nothing... except the automatic rear passenger seats. I never know when the seat will stop before my rear passenger gets squished.

I must say it handles and rides better then 99% of the vehicles I have driven. Very reliable, very fast, very well built, no complaints. Resale is wonderful and so is gas mileage. BUY ONE


Favorite Features

In dash 6 disk cd changer, heated seats, heated mirrors, 260hp vtec engine, bose stereo.


Suggested Improvements

Just a touch more low end torque other than that nothing.

2001 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The S-type is a hoot to drive. Excellent performance and cornering ability. The auto shift works well and get the job done. Gas milage is in the 25 mpg range overall. very quite overall with a nice growl from the duel exhaust. The only issues are the 6 cd changer jams up but then the problem clears up later in the day and the stock tires are sub par.


Favorite Features

Auto-shift, 6-cd changer / tape


Suggested Improvements

improve information management center
