2003 Acura CL 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.

Favorite Features

stock sound system is great for stock. absolutely love 6-disk-in-dash, so much better than old school trunk style. the ability to downshift with an automatic. passenger mirror tilting when reversing.

Suggested Improvements

sport-tronic transmission to slow. passenger window no autodown feature. why is the sunroof controls on the left? 'type-s'= weak jap brakes, front wheel drive, transversely mounted V6, and either not enough or to much wheel spin decrease gaps between body panels (ie. trunk)
