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


After over six months of research before buying my first new car, there was no doubt of which car I had to buy. I considered the BMW 3 series (add up all the options & accessories to compare with the CL-S and it was too expensive-short and long term), the Lexus IS-300 (OMG the interiors are cardboard! FUGLY!), the Solara SLE V6 (I used to own a 92 Camry LE, they were basically the same car, also overpriced), and Audi A4 (too big). The CL-S has the best bang-for-the-buck. Built solid, looks good in and out, and lives up to its "Type S" name.

Best Features

Spiffy engine. Navi is great. Perfect seats & interior overall. Getting a "wow" out of anyone who's been a passenger :-)

Worst Features

The Bose system is only marginally average. Unless you listen to spoken word stuff, you'll probably be dissapointed. Then again, it's Bose so I didn't expect much from it. The only other thing is the parking brake should never ever be a foot brake (even in an AT) on a car like this.
