1998 Acura CL 2.3 Premium 2dr Coupe


This is my first car, drove it on my permit since the day I got it and now driving it on my license for 2 months. This car is pretty fun to drive as my first car with a 5 speed manual. Reliability? This car wrote the book on it. Which is what every Honda/Acura has come to know and love. It has 267k miles and runs like new, no major repairs on it ever. Every one of my friends says it runs like new as well. It's pretty quick, I've beaten a few v6 mustangs, older maxima, and mitsubishi eclipse, so it's not slow. Overall an amazing car for the value and an amazing first car. It's very luxurious, not like driving in a super light hatchback Civic.

Best Features

You can feel how well built the car is every time you drive it. I'm a kid so I beat the crap out of it revving the engine past 4000 all the time and never a problem. I'm getting around 21mpg around town about 28 highway, just like the reviews say.

Worst Features

The V6 is probably more fun with another 50hp, but I've also heard the 3.0l has a couple of problems.
