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


It's been almost a year since I bought
my red '03 CL-S. It replaced a '99 VW
Passat GLS V6 that was simply poorly
built and was simply a piece of junk. I
try to own my cars for 7 years, but the
VW had other ideas. I traded it in for
the CL and this car is GREAT. I can own
and drive this for 7 years-easy! It's
quality all the way around and performs
extremely well. I saw another review
complain about mileage, for me the fuel
economy is great, better than I
expected: c19-20 and h32 in most
cases...I try not to put my foot into
the gas too often, which is easy to do
because the car is so eager to get

I highly recommend this car.

Best Features

Bose sounds system, responsive engine/power, for a sporty coupe good ride quality, clean design: interior and exterior.

Worst Features

I really like manual trans. but I got the automatic trans. because the manual trans. shifter and clutch are so: weak, spongy and offer no "feel". So please Acura, take a cue from some European sports cars and improve the manual transmission.
