2002 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Although used at 68000 when I purchased it, the car was immaculate in and out. It runs well but might need new springs,struts. Also the navagation system needed upgrading. That aside, the car is a dream to own and drive. Love it.


Best Features

Everything is great. But then it's an Acura, right?


Worst Features

Well, for me the ride is a bit bumpy. So may need springs and or struts. Nothing else I can think of.

2002 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My 2002 Acura 3.2 CL S-type has eaten its second transmission and it has only 58K on it. The first one went out at 38K. All Acura seems to be doing with this "recall" is replacing the transmission with a new one of the same faulty part. I know two other people who have had at least 2 transmissions in this same year/make of car. For any new car, this is just unforgiveably lousy reliability and quality. (especially for the price range that this car was in as a new car.) I will never buy another Acura product again after this experience.


Best Features

The engine is powerful and smooth, very comfortable interior.


Worst Features

Don't replace a poorly designed part that is broken . . . with the same poorly designed part and call that a "fix." perhaps more thoroughly test such a major car part before unleashing it on the market. There are year models after this that have transmission issues, too.

I had pontiac GTO 2004 before this car. What a mistake. I love my CL-S. Great engine, seamless interior, classic exterior forms. HID, heated seats. I love this car. I got it for 18K with 20K miles only.


Best Features

260HP, HID, heated seats, CD changer


Worst Features

More head room, I'm 6'2" and need about 1 inch more:-)
