"I bought this car new in July 2000 (It's a 2001), and it has been totally awesome. I went through one tranny change, and as others have written, Acura gave me a new loaner, fixed the tranny for free, and it has been trouble free ever since.
The car now has 268,000 on it, and it STILL gets 30 mpg on the road, and I run at about 2 mph over the posted limit. The car will blow the doors off the competition when asked to, and cruises ALL day without a whimper. For reasons which escape me (wash, wax?) the paint still looks FACTORY new.
I'm debating keeping my Red Sled, and at the same time shopping a new Acura....."
"I bought this '03 Acura CL new as a leftover in '04. It is the last 2 door coupe. I hadn't intended to buy this but it was love at first sight.I believe some cars have a soul & this girl truly does. She's quick, sleek & fun.
The only negative is the transmission. I had to have it replaced & Michael at Acura USA pretended not to know of the obvious problems people have had. The small discs that separate the transmission discs come loose & plug the filter & the tranny fails.
Other than that this car is really been great."
