The 2003 Acura 3.2CL Type S is much
quicker than was my 1995 Legend; it
has a higher level of technology; and
it has greater convenience; but it's
not a Legend. It doesn't have the big
luxury car feel and road presence of
the Legend. My wife complains that
the Type S makes too much "boy noise" -
- a fault my ears fail to detect --
but every morning it's the car she
takes to work, leaving the Lexus in
the garage. I've driven the car on
two vacation trips this year and find
that the power and handling are as
good as one will find in a front-wheel
drive sport coupe.
The 260-horsepower engine.
A power tilt-telescopic steering
wheel, power door closing feature and
the front end of the second generation
Legend. But since Acura is dropping
this model, it doesn't matter.
