1997 Acura CL 2.2 2dr Coupe


I originally bought this car because itcost $4,000 less than a comparable usedAccord Coupe and much better drive thana Camry Solara. Now that I've had thecar for a year, I know I made the rightchoice. This car is ultra-smooth on thehighway. In the city, it's veryresponsive and has a stiff ride, but nottoo harsh. It has all the features Ineed and they all work well except forthe ac/heater which is a little slow. On the down side, this car is hard topark in tight spaces because of it'slarge turning radius, but this helps itsstability. The auto is a bit jerky, butsmooth if you accelerate fast enough. The only thing I've had to fix is thepower window motor so far.

Best Features

flat torque curve, nice backside, largeand grippy wheels, roomy for a coupe,great handling, ultra quiet when notaccelerating, 30mpg with mostly highwaydriving and synthetic oil, and most ofall it turns heads even after 8 years

Worst Features

smaller turning radius, better cupholders, fold-down rear seats, cheapstereo for an Acura
