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


Before I bought this vehicle I was
worried about the torque pull, its
lack of refinement and its comparison
to others in its class. After a test
drive, I questioned it no more. The
technical beauty of Acura's Limited
slip differential took some getting
used to, but it does behave much like
a RWD sports car in its handling. The
bottom line of this vehicle is that it
successfully merges the best aspects
of a FWD luxury sedan with the
performance of a sports coupe. What a
shame that this car is being d/c'd. I
hope that Acura doesn't shy away from
this platform in the future.

Best Features

Engine, 6 speed tranny, seats. Just plain fun to drive.

Worst Features

Stereo needs about 30 more db, navigation needs more detail in smaller towns.
