Soft leather glove with brass knuckles

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


The CL-S is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Sleek, elegant exterior styling and an amazingly intuitive interior layout mask what may be the best sleeper car out there. Performance wise, this car will crush many "sports" cars, while providing amenities such as an in-dash 6-disc Bose CD changer, heated leather memory seats & mirrors, xenon HID headlights and Acura service & warranty. The CL Type S is not for everyone, but it should be on every luxury coupe buyer's test drive list.

Best Features

AMAZING performance from a near-luxury coupe. Completely loaded; standard features rival those of much more expensive cars. 5 speed transmission with Sequential SportShift. Flawless ergonomics. Great value.

Worst Features

Minor items - Paint is easily chipped. 17" wheels prone to scuffing. Seat belts rarely retract on thier own. Tires and brakes seem mismatched for Type S. So-so build quality. HID headlights prone to theft in some areas. Questionable resale value.
