The best sport coupe value out there

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


The CL Type S 6 speed is simply the best sport coupe value available. It has it all: excellent performance, superb handling, luxurious, roomy and practical, FWD for the snow, absolutely reliable - all for less than $30k. This is the 3rd Acura CL we've bought. My wife and I bought a matching pair of 2001 CL's, and I loved them so much that I recently traded one in for a new 2003 Type S 6 speed. There was simply nothing else out there like it. The new Infiniti G35 Coupe was close - it's a very nice car, but RWD doesn't go as well in the snow, it has less room, and is about $10k more. It was a no brainer choice.

Best Features

Power, combination of superb handling (courtesy of the helical limited slip differential) with FWD practicality in the snow, luxurious and roomy interior, big trunk, rock-solid reliability, and good gas mileage to boot.

Worst Features

It's hard to ask for more at this price. I'm just sorry it's been discontinued.
