Unreliable Disappointment
By Brian DC on


1997 Acura CL 3.0 Premium 2dr Coupe


My CL 3.0 has 77K miles on it, and has
had numerous repairs since the warranty
expired including bad alternator
($300+), bad transmission
(remanufactured $2500+), check engine
emissions($250). Parts are expensive
for this car. What has happenned to
Acura reliability? This will be my
last Acura. I will purchase a long
extended warranty if I ever were to get
a Honda/Acura product again. Also this
car has developed a LOT of noisiness
and squeaks in the last few years.

The CL is great for highway drives,
comfortable and fast on the highway.
Has a nice set of standard options and
great V6 engine.

Best Features

Heated seats, Smooth V6, Powerful brakes.
