2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Fun to drive. accelerating to enter
traffic is a fun time, but watch the
speedometer as you will quickly reach
speeds you did not entend to achieve.
Driving up Mount Raineer and Mount
Saint Helen gives you a good example of
the vehicles road handling
characteristics, which are very good.
You always feel secure. Glad I bought
it. Using 92 or 93 octane I have been
getting up to 29 mph.


Best Features

Acceleration,memory for the power seats,climate control, road hugging in curvesand the sound of the exhaust as the RMS rise.


Worst Features

Hard to clean the rear inside window or to remove bugs or trash as there isn't enough room. Moon roof is a waste as it doesn,t open enough and catches lots of leaves and other debris that is hard to remove.

2003 Acura CL 3.2 Type-S 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Underrated and underappreciated,
especially with the 6 speed. Superb
engine with wide power band. Plenty of
low end punch, yet revs freely all the
way to redline. Great transmission
with crisp, short throws. Very fast.
Quiet. Doesn't quite handle like a
sports car, but very good for its size.
Most drivers won't be able to push it
to its limits. Anti-slip differential
works. Navigation system
indispensible. Usable backseat and
trunk. Heavily equipped for the
money. Subtle good looks. Not flashy,
but still get lots of comments from
onlookers. If you're looking for a
coupe, test drive one of these. Get
one before they all disappear.


Best Features

Outstanding engine matched to equally excellent transmission. Honda reliability. Xenon headlamps. Nav system. Huge standard equipment list.


Worst Features

Trip computer. Sound system sounds mediocre, needs better high and low end along with a mute or pause button. Grippier tires.

2003 Acura CL 3.2 2dr Coupe (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have been thrilled with the look and handling
so far (2 months). Was exactly what I was
looking to buy for less than I'd expected to
pay (especially with end of year discounts).
Great deal and nice ride.


Best Features

Butt wamers (especially in Chicago!!) and V6 power. Great Bose stereo and steering wheel controls. Also, useful memory seats.


Worst Features

Dislike the need for premium gas. Otherwise great!!!
