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


After over six months of research
before buying my first new car, there
was no doubt of which car I had to buy.
I considered the BMW 3 series (add up
all the options & accessories to
compare with the CL-S and it was too
expensive-short and long term), the
Lexus IS-300 (OMG the interiors are
cardboard! FUGLY!), the Solara SLE V6
(I used to own a 92 Camry LE, they were
basically the same car, also
overpriced), and Audi A4 (too big). The
CL-S has the best bang-for-the-buck.
Built solid, looks good in and out, and
lives up to its "Type S" name.

Best Features

Spiffy engine. Navi is great. Perfect seats & interior overall. Getting a "wow" out of anyone who's been a passenger :-)

Worst Features

The Bose system is only marginally average. Unless you listen to spoken word stuff, you'll probably be dissapointed. Then again, it's Bose so I didn't expect much from it. The only other thing is the parking brake should never ever be a foot brake (even in an AT) on a car like this.
