When I bought the car it had 213,000 miles on it, original engine and trans. It runs like a dream still. I just passed the smog test. The car has 226,000 miles on it now and I've had no trouble at all(knock on wood). I haven't even done a tune up yet. IMO this is one of the best cars ever made. It just keeps going! This will be the car I compare all others to.

I bought this car with 200000 miles on it and it is still running very well at 220000. Great first car! Not the greatest mpg (22-23) but it is V6. It handles very well and still can beat a newer car in a race! I'm going to be very sad when it dies, but then again it still wants to run, I don't know many cars that will top 220000 miles and stil be running as well as it is now! Wonderful car I can't imagine driving anything else!!

I bought the car about 2 years ago with 183K miles. It has given excellent service for a 15 year car. The car is in fair shape. I replaced timing belt a year ago it was the original according to the mechanic. Great car!

I truly think this is still Acura's best car ever. I bought it at 120K in 2001 and have had to do plenty of maintenance, but there was nothing out of the ordinary. It's true, dealer parts are expensive but they last, and there's usually alternate parts for the major systems too. As much as I love the TLs and RLs, I just can't bring myself to let go of this one until it dies, and even then, it'll be a sad day.

I bought it with 45,000 miles on it.
It is fun to drive but have had
repeated problems with the ABS system.
Replaced rear window regulators (left
one twice), steering rack, distributor,
and numerous other parts over years.
Now paint is shot and leather front
seats are severly cracked. Spending
$1000+ annually. Am replacing it with
a 3.2CL-S 6-speed.

This car was great cinsidering it is
my first car, but it has also cost a
bit, for example, 500 bucks for a/c
fixing and another 700 in a/c repairs
still needed, power steering leak (a
couple hundred) new battery ($100), a
new paintjob and a few other repairs,
nothing too huge, but right now, i
think my transmission is slipping and
it makes a funny noise when i turn
