2001 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


I have owned several Hondas as well as a previous Acura Integra, so I had no reservations about purchasing my CL Type S. I had the transmission issue that we've all had, but Acura backed it up without issue. I have since only had a seat belt issue, again under warranty, and have only gone through 1 set of tires and a battery. The reliability I expect from an Acura. My fiancee has a Mercedes C230 coupe which she has driven 10K miles and we're already considering selling it and keeping the CL until we drive it into the ground. It was a great buy 4 1/2 years ago and is still a great buy as a pre-owned car.

Best Features

Engine, power options

Worst Features

Well the car isn't made anymore, but I'm not a big fan of the manumatic transmission... if you really want to change your own gears, get the 6 speed manual. Wheels do scratch and bend a little to easily.
