After my 96 Corvette bit the dust with
only 60,000 miles I went car shopping.
Considered the Nissan Z and the
Infiniti G35 coupe but kept coming back
to the CL-S. I bought a 01 with 35k
miles and it's perfect. The
performance isn't what the Corvette was
but I no longer need a kidney belt
after long road trips. The CL-S is the
perfect compromise between luxury and
sport with Honda reliability. After
having gone from a Prelude to a
Corvette, the GM design was really
Heated leather seats, Xenon headlights,
great stereo, great road trip cruiser.
Rear wheel drive would probably have
helped the "front heavy" feel, but a
silly point now that Acura discontinued
the CL... will have to buy an 03 next.
