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


Review

Car was delivered in perfect
condition. Finish and mechanicals
all done well! Comfortable to drive,
quiet, excellent sound system,
handles well. Big trunk.
3.2 (not Type S) is a little shy on
mid-range torque for spirited
highway driving but is fine for touring
and accepts 89 octaine witrh no
complaints.


Best Features

Finish, comfortable ride, sound system, fun to drive


Worst Features

Torque curve on plain 3.2 peaks too high (4700 rpm) which forces trans to downshift at highway speeds (65-75) when you accellerate to pass and then it runs out of revs too quickly.

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


Review

I really like my car especially the
performance from the engine. Faster
then everything but a vette. Its like a
wolf in sheeps clothes. HOWEVER, I only
have 13,000 miles and I am on my 2nd
transmission! What is that? This new
one is starting to act up too. It jerks
at 40 and 60mph. There is a little too
much wind noise for $30+ car.


Best Features

Performance, stereo, bun warmer.


Worst Features

Transmission, Wind noise.

I love my car. I can't understand why
Acura would discontinue this model.
Shame.

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


Review

I believe that the CL S-Type is the
best value in it's class. The car is
really built very well. There is not
another car out there that you get so
much for so little. The S-Type comes
completely loaded at a price of about
$33,000. It blows every BMW away in
terms of features, price, and
horsepower. There is only the BMW M3
that has more horses and the M3 almost
costs double. I traded in a 95 BMW
325is for the Acura and all I can say
is the Acurua ROCKS!!


Best Features

The Bose audio system is fantastic. Great pick up and smooth acceleration. A great car to drive on the highway for a long drive. Real good passing power at any speed. Very comfortable seats. Oh, and by the way, it is front wheel drive. Much better to drive in the snow!


Worst Features

Lower the suspension a little. Make the race a little more racey. At times, a little too much body roll in shape corners.
