Big Bang, Reasonable Buck
By Klamalama on


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


The CL 6-speed is a great choice for those that want a manual, while keeping their spouses in luxury. The conservative exterior will help this car go unnoticed. This will come in handy considering its performance.

The perforated leather is comfy. The interior is tasteful and beautifully crafted. The dash is clean with large easy to read gauges. Controls are well placed. The gear throws are short & precise, but the clutch grabs a bit too quickly. The engine winds forever yet has the torque to minimize shifting.

Ride is taut, not stiff. Goes exactly where pointed but not on rails. HLSD does an excellent eliminating torque steer while adding to the traction benefits of FWD.
