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


I'm a hard-core car nut and have owned 94 cars in my life. I can honestly say that the Acura CL Type S 6-speed is the best new car overall I have ever owned. I like it so much that this is the third new CL we've bought in the past 3 years (in 2001 we bought 2 CL's, a S for me and a Premeium for my wife. Recently we traded in her Premium for this new Type S 6-speed, and she inherited my previous Type S automatic). This car simply does everything well: comfortable, jewel-like construction quality, bullet-proof reliability, great value, and the perfect balance between sport and luxury. There's nothing else like it on the market.

Best Features

That magical Acura balance. It's luxurious and comfortable, yet a blast to drive. It has all the luxury toys, yet with a 6-speed is a true enthusiast's car. It's better than a BMW 3-series and $10,000 less.

Worst Features

Keep it in production! I'm disappointed that it was recently discontinued, and hope Acura will introduce a couple version on the new TL platform.
