1997 Acura CL 3.0 Premium 2dr Coupe


I've loved this car from the moment we
test drove it. I've babied it & always
used the terrific dealer service).
After 5 years, I have just had my first
major mechanical problem, and it's a
biggie -- transmission. I'm making the
investment ($3600 - Acura chipped in
with $900 off and a free rental) to
keep it going for at least a few more
years. The sound system is unmatched
in any car I've been in. Little
things, like the leather starting to
give on the seams, and the door on my
glasses box (under the CD player)
busting a hinge are my only annoyances.
sigh. And that the transmission should
go bad...

Best Features

*That little crease down the center of the trunk. I know others didn't like it, but I always thought it was distinctive & kinda sexy. * The pleasant "thunk" when you close the door, shutting out road noise. *HANDLING and ACCELERATION!

Worst Features

I wish the passenger seat had same power adjustments as the driver side.
