Good value but...
By BHarvey on


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


...it's a Honda. Great engine and fortunately, I've escaped the transmission woes (for now). Handling is OK, but steering feedback is typical Honda "dead". Little communication with the road. Turning radius is much too wide for a car of this type. OEM Michelins were terrible. Replaced with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S. Expensive, but a fantastic improvement. Great car for those who want a sporty car w/above avg power, but don't want to sacrifice comfort. Handling and feedback not even close to a Bimmer 330, but then again, it was $6 grand cheaper.

Best Features

Great engine, looks, drivability and durability

Worst Features

Improve road feedback and tighten the turning radius. Lengthen shift points between 1-2 gears. Put better tires on it. The cupholders are a joke. Buy the Bimmer if you have the extra $6 grand.
