CL-S 6-Speed: Wolf in sheep's clothing
By srelay on
2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
My wife and I both drive and enjoy this car. We bought it with 18k on the odometer and 6-speed manual because we prefer self-shifting and heard about the problems with the automatic versions. My wife especially loves the CL for its clean exterior lines and interior creature comforts with those particular appealing Acura-Honda ergonomics. I like it for its rarity factor as well! Reliable with no problems yet. Very quiet with a solid feel on the highway - cruising in 6th gear - with superb handling and road-feel on the curves. Great for long trips. Lots of power and torque for those sticky highway situations. At 260-hp it's the most powerful car we've ever owned and probably ever will.
Looks, seats (heated leather with excellent custom positioning), sound system, large trunk, handling.
