Fast, solid coupe

Vehicle

2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Traded in a Porsche 968 for a CL Type-S 6spd. Can drive this just as fast if not faster, sticks well, neutral right up to breakaway,very confidence-building. Only..wish for less body roll, better headroom (I'm 6-0, have to sort of duck), sunroof baffle doesn't baffle, just buffets, and did I mention headroom.

Price-performance ratio gets no better

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

Review

A $30,000 car with the luxury and features of a vehicle far more expensive. The CL has enough power to make extended highway driving as much of a breeze as peeling away from stoplights, but sacrifices not an ounce of driver comfort for that performance. From the heated leather seats to the (admittedly gimmicky) shiftable autotransmission, this car as all about giving you that in-command feeling, at a price you can actually afford.

more luxury than sports in this coupe

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

Review

this was my first car, and im very very happy with it...for now. its a great luxury car with an enourmous power band, but only in the lower gears. your gonna have to downshift to get any acceleration, but when you do downshift, its there. the handling nowhere near matches the power though. its all but non-existant. for a japense car, the price your paying, and the fact that luxury comes first in its name, you cant expect much. although its not horrible, it cant match BMW or anything else in its price range. but you can tell how they cram in so many options as standard equipment, by cutting back in certain places.

Fun to Drive, but Poor Reliability
By Fastkar on 03/08/03 00:00 AM (PST)

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

Review

The car was fun to drive however, it was in the shop at least five times with under 20,000 miles. I had to get a new transmission, new rotors, seats got stuck many times, and my sunroof rattles like it was put in after market. They were never able to really fix it. Their fix was special tape made by Acura. This was my first and last Acura.

3.2CL Type S--Wonderful Vehicle
By ejwe on 03/04/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

The vehicle has extremely comfortable seats and has a reasonably quiet interior. The interior is put together quite well with very few rattles or squeaks. The independent suspension soaks up potholes. The vehicle is responsive and appears to be very quick for a vehicle of this class. The exterior styling may be a bit dated for those who desire the latest new look. CDs sound clear and the base is great.

CL 6 speed after 6 months of driving
By Jimmy Lee on 02/28/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Overall, the 6 speed CL is an interesting car. The 6 speed adds a lot of fun to the car; especially, the amount of power available during 3 and 4th gear. The feul economy is very good. It average gives me 310 miles/tank. The down side of the car is that the body is too high and the suspension is too soft. Comptech suspension kit is the rescue to the problem.

Jack of all trades or a master of none?

Vehicle

2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 6M)

Review

Before I bought this vehicle I was worried about the torque pull, its lack of refinement and its comparison to others in its class. After a test drive, I questioned it no more. The technical beauty of Acura's Limited slip differential took some getting used to, but it does behave much like a RWD sports car in its handling. The bottom line of this vehicle is that it successfully merges the best aspects of a FWD luxury sedan with the performance of a sports coupe. What a shame that this car is being d/c'd. I hope that Acura doesn't shy away from this platform in the future.

CL-S - Great Value for the Price
By mbackus on 02/26/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

The Acura CL-S would be best called a "sleeper." The exterior styling is a bit bland, but once you are in the drivers seat the Acura takes on a whole new flavor. This automobile is truly fun to drive. While it won't meet the true driving enthusiast's needs (except perhaps with the 6-speed manual) this car has plenty of luxury and power to go around. The level of options included make the Acura a great value. The interior is cozy and comfortable with all switchgear close to hand. The Acura has a good sized trunk and would be a good choice as a touring car for a single person or a couple.

Great CL
By JimmyCL on 02/25/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

Review

This is the best 2 door coupe on the market. The handling of my CL S-Type couldn't be better. It hugs the road like a sports car. The exterior is clean and sleek and very appealing to the eye. When you hit the throttle you are pinned to the seat, but just driving easy through town is a real joy too. The exhaust system sounds great, you not only feel the powerful V-6 you hear it too. I have had the car for 10 months without any problems. Just like a Honda, the reliability is the best. The Bose sound system provides a great place to listen to your favorite CD while driving on the open road. My next car most likely will be another Acura, Cl or RL.. Jim
