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


Bought this car new with navigation. Front seats are sporty but get uncomfortable after long trips. Back seat has lots of legroom but the seats aren't comfortable at all. Exhaust note is nice. Bose stereo is pretty bad for a Bose (no highs, no lows, it must be Bose really is true here). 5spd gearing is good, but the actual transmission is quite bad. It doesn't shift smootly at all, and there is major lags on the manumatic mode. Interior build quality needs attention, this thing rattles and it wasn't even a year old.

Best Features

Highway low cruising RPM, engine is pretty nice, navigation is great

Worst Features

Better rear seats, more solid construction, a stereo that sounds decent, a transmission with faster shifting, and one that has a real tiptronic, this thing constantly goes between 1 and 2 without user intervention, when I want to be in 1st leave it in first don't shift to 2
