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.
Butt wamers (especially in Chicago!!) and V6
power. Great Bose stereo and steering wheel
controls. Also, useful memory seats.
Dislike the need for premium gas. Otherwise
My second CL. First was a 99. A great
car. My new 03 is a dream come true. I
love the styling and comfort. Many
standard features make this baby a
real "bang for the buck". Looked at
other comparable cars and none could
match the features and comfort when
compared to the purchase price of this
*In-dash 6-CD changer
*More interior noise with sunroof open
than in my 99.
*99CL sunroof opened further
*Dash not as rich as the 99CL
The CL has been trouble free and very
reliable. Excellent for long trips
except for mileage, which should be a
bit higher. The handling is very good
with good comfort on long trips. The
roof is a bit too low for me, so I
usually drive with the sunroof open,
weather permitting. Fit and finish are
near perfect, no rattles, but some body
flex is evident with a squeek of the
I use the auto down tilt right mirror
when backing every day. Helps get into
the more popular tight parking spots.
Even with HID lights, fog lights
would be useful. Higher roof line for
taller drivers. Fold down rear seat.
