more luxury than sports in this coupe
By vaid02 on


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


this was my first car, and im very
very happy with it...for now. its a
great luxury car with an enourmous
power band, but only in the lower
gears. your gonna have to downshift to
get any acceleration, but when you do
downshift, its there. the handling
nowhere near matches the power though.
its all but non-existant. for a
japense car, the price your paying,
and the fact that luxury comes first
in its name, you cant expect much.
although its not horrible, it cant
match BMW or anything else in its
price range. but you can tell how they
cram in so many options as standard
equipment, by cutting back in certain

Best Features

stock sound system is great for stock. absolutely love 6-disk-in-dash, so much better than old school trunk style. the ability to downshift with an automatic. passenger mirror tilting when reversing.

Worst Features

sport-tronic transmission to slow. passenger window no autodown feature. why is the sunroof controls on the left? 'type-s'= weak jap brakes, front wheel drive, transversely mounted V6, and either not enough or to much wheel spin decrease gaps between body panels (ie. trunk)
