Best for the budget!

2001 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased my CL-S over a year ago with 76K miles on it and so far it has performed very well. Excellent build quality and premium feel to interior. Most people think the car is less than one year old! The 260HP engine was ahead of its time and can still keep up with recent models like the Infiniti G35 coupe. Although the mileage was high, it was an excellent value for under $13K. I just replaced the front rotors and pads at around 88K miles ($400), and the only other expense I incurred were the four new tires ($650). The car has been pulling slightly to the left since I bought it and after two alignments the problem has not been corrected. It's been an overall pleasure to drive.
Power, look, quality.
Suspension needs some adjustments and does not feel confident over 95 mph. Auto-shift has delay and sometimes doesn't shift between 2nd and 3rd gear on the first attempt.
