Vehicle

2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)

Review

I bought this car for its high reliability (per Consumer Reports), safety (assuming same www.iihs.org crash worthiness as Honda Acord), performance (270 HP, clutch with very narrow sweet spot and 6-speed gear ratios), fun (VTEC sound/growl), styling (classic), winter traction (front wheel drive) and value (under $30k).

Best Features

$15,000 less than comparable BMW and no complaints after after 11 months and 12,000 miles.

Worst Features

Too late now that model is discontinued, but this CL needs better emergency brake, better seat belt retractors, side air bags, glass roof with sunshade rather than wimpy tilt/slide model and variable heated seat settings.
