Love it but...

1998 Acura CL 2.3 2dr Coupe


I've had the car for almost 2 yrs now,
and I do truely love it. Only a couple
problems, I have this annoying rattle
noise in the dashboard, in happens when
I go over rough road and I cant for the
life of me find it.
I also have an annoying metallic
chatter from under the front-end when
the car rev's threw 1800rpm, sounds
like it could be the heat shield, but I
have checked it and it's tight. And
lastly it has developed a exhaust leak
in the S-pipe, rusted out from what I
can see. The car is only 4 yrs old. I
am very disappointed at this, seeing as
my previous car, a '93 Acura Integra GS
went over 8 yrs and 100k miles before
needing exhaust work.

Best Features

Body styling, nothing like it out there! 5-speed Transmission and Handling are tight & smooth.

Worst Features

Engine performance takes a dive with the A/C running...
