1999 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my used red coupe in Dec. 2002 for $15k. Previously was leased & had 32k miles on it. I have had no issues with my car except that I had to get a new alternator in 2005. My mechanic says he has seen people bring this car in well into the 200k mile range with no major issues. I love the power behind this car. The car is nimble & quick which has saved me from accidents in difficult DC area traffic. The acceleration is great. I used to date a car enthusiast who told me this car has such great guts that many buy these cars and soup them up for racing purposes. I plan to keep this car forever.


Best Features

My favorite are the leather seats, sunroof, booty warmers, the Bose system is great, the ability to change radio stations/CD tracks with a control on the steering wheel & the ability to pop open the trunk with the keyless remote which is very helpful when lugging groceries to the car


Worst Features

could be a lil roomier inside, I am a big 6ft gal and my boyfriend is 6'5 260 and it is a sight to behold to see us both in my ride; we both have to push the seats all the way back (and he has to recline his) to sit comfortably

1999 Acura CL 3.0 2dr Coupe


Review

I have had my 3.0 for 3 years now and I love it! It has 125,000 miles now and is still running great. The A/C is stuck on though and wish it didn't have digital temperature controls because there is no way of turning it off. We have only had to replace the motor in the drivers window and the timing belt (normal maintenance though for a car with more than 100k). Great commuter car and fun to drive I wouldn't change a thing! Also great sound system and the leather seats are holding up great!


Best Features

The sporty yet classy look is my favorite. I would buy again!

Review

I bought mine used and its a great car, good power very roomy for a coupe, take it up to 60 mph and let the fun begin, accelerates better at high speeds. Also retains value very well. Great thing is no options brings everything you might need in a coupe standard. And very comfortable in the back which is rare for a coupe.


Best Features

Roomy interior,great acceleration. Very comfortable seats front and back


Worst Features

Jumps on strong take off because of front wheel drive, also needed a sportier look but still a nice looking car

Review

So far I only added the gas and did the regular maintenance. Has the original Michelin tires (100k)! This baby helps me to take the lead on the fastest lane of the freeway in no time: it's the cheetah of the roads.


Best Features

Shiny paint, the sound when accelerate, head turner, CD sound, 33 mpg summer/30 mpg winter, good materials and engineering.


Worst Features

Powertrain a bit noisy at low speeds

Bought the car for my daughter when she

Fun to drive, great gas mileage and no
problems.

Acura service was great when I took it in to have it checked out.

Can only wish someone had thought to sell one as a drop dead convertable! Hey, I guy can dream can't he.
