Best car I have ever owned. CL Type S, Black on Black with additional black wood accent trim around inst. panel, A/C vents, console, etc, WOW, upgraded interior, backup and fog lights to PIAA- improvement! When you ask it to go, it comes back and says “how fast”, very smooth & responsive, handles like a dream. 29,000 miles replaced tires to Bridgestone Turanza LSV – good choice. When you sit in the seat it wraps around you as to say “I’ll protect you”. Sad, to say I have experienced a few hard shifts from 2nd to 3rd, hope this is not a sign of the known tranny issues, other than that, no mechanical problems.
Blackwood interior trim, seats, console, good use of space. Well balanced and good curb weight, feels solid and safe.
Paint, very poor quality, says it’s clear coat, it must be a thin coat. Bose sound system is disappointing. Shame that such a great car has had so many tranny issues, not good for a company named after “AcCURAcy” but I guess nothing is perfect.
