Would Keep It Forever

2001 Acura CL 3.2 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
I keep hoping Acura will make another coupe like this. It still looks great and handles well at 91,000 miles. I'm hoping it lasts 91,000 more. Its second transmission slips just a little on a quick shift, and there's rust on the bottom of the passenger- side door. The brakes have had a major overhaul. Our other car is a 2003 CTS, which I like just as well although the features differ.
Overall appearance, reliability, engine, handling, heated seats. Motorized front seats make access to rear seats easier.
Seatbelt is hard to find and frequently gets caught in the door. Paint chips easily. Chrome on wheel nut rusted early on.
