Vehicle

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

Review

By a large margin, the best car I've owned in more than a half-century on the road. Impressive response to throttle inputs, smooth shifts, excellent torque, even in 5th gear, pretty decent mileage (22 with a lot of stop-and-go 25-mi commutes into DC and back). Virtually no shop time other than for reg maintenance, brakes went 60K before replacement. Finish holding up very well despite outside parking at home. The kid wants to know when I'll be too old to drive it so she can have it, even tho she's not sure why there are three pedals. When they pry my cold, dead fingers from the shift knob, that's when. Or when Acura builds me a suitable and acceptable successor.

Favorite Features

clutch/transmission, interior appointments, useful trunk space, rear- hugging driver's seat, "that sound" when turning 4K or better.

Suggested Improvements

Really wish they had put the tach in the middle of the cluster.
