Fun to drive

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


I traded my 97 SHO for this CL-S. I
was pleasantly surprised by the
acceleration and handling of the CL-S,
but a bit disappointed with the minor
03 face lift. Where are the driving
lights, and the new wheels are a bit
boring. While I really enjoyed my SHO,
I've not really missed it. I do miss a
few features that the SHO had over the
CL-S, things like auto locking doors,
auto on-off headlights, and the
combination lock on the drivers door.
But these are all just nit picks.

Best Features

Acceleration and handling, Seat comfort, heated seats, in-dash CD changer, solid build quality (so far), interior layout and design, and did I mention the seats?

Worst Features

Needs a bit more head room, lots of wind rush noise when sunroof is in the up position, no auto lock feature for the doors, no auto-on option for the headlights, needs a telescoping steering wheel, and the 03 style updates.
