The best sport coupe value out there
By Nick-L on


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


The CL Type S 6 speed is simply the
best sport coupe value available. It
has it all: excellent performance,
superb handling, luxurious, roomy and
practical, FWD for the snow,
absolutely reliable - all for less
than $30k. This is the 3rd Acura CL
we've bought. My wife and I bought a
matching pair of 2001 CL's, and I
loved them so much that I recently
traded one in for a new 2003 Type S 6
speed. There was simply nothing else
out there like it. The new Infiniti
G35 Coupe was close - it's a very nice
car, but RWD doesn't go as well in the
snow, it has less room, and is about
$10k more. It was a no brainer choice.

Best Features

Power, combination of superb handling (courtesy of the helical limited slip differential) with FWD practicality in the snow, luxurious and roomy interior, big trunk, rock-solid reliability, and good gas mileage to boot.

Worst Features

It's hard to ask for more at this price. I'm just sorry it's been discontinued.
