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


I recently purchased this red, 2001 Acura CL 3.2, 2 door coupe, Type S. I had a 1997 Camry for 10 years, which still ran excellently, but the suspension was degrading, and other things were starting to go wrong with it. So, I had heard the Acura was a "fancy" Honda, and took a look at this used one with only 47,000 miles. It was great, and so "zippy"! As a middle aged woman, who has always been sensible, I decided to go for it. What fun! I am really enjoying this car. I do have to watch out for the paint, as it seems to flaw easily. Also, I have heard the trannys are not the greatest, but so far so good with this one. And features!? It practically comes in and cleans the house!

Best Features

Side passenger mirror that tilts down to show the curb when you put it in reverse. Lumbar support seating. Sound system. Large trunk. Very zippy! Excellent handling. Seat warmers. Locking back seat arm rest/storage unit. Pop up trunk with remote switch. Impressive air conditioning system.

Worst Features

The Milan red paint does flaw and scratch easily. Seat belt (shoulder harness) is hard to pull forward from where its located. Radio station button on steering wheel only changes stations to those you have program in. It will not "search" from that location.
