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


When I first showed my new 2003 CL Type
S to my friend, he wasn't
impressed. "Looks like an Accord" he
said. Admittedly, this car's exterior
styling and sightlines haven't
revolutionalized the industry.
The true heart and soul of
this car lied under the hood & in
it's wonderfully sporty suspension and
chassis system. Once I took him on an
edge-of-the-seat 70-80 mph joy ride, he
no longer saw this car as an Accord.
I've also suprised many a city
stoplight-racers in my area.

After I blow them off the line with
lurching tires and screaming
acceleration from the VTEC 6 cylinder,
I suspect they won't look at
an "Accord" in the same light ever

Best Features

Power. Performance. Oh yeah, and Power.

Worst Features

Redesigned exterior body. Curvier... give an option for 18 inch wheels.
