"We bought our CL new in 1996. It is still running smoothly every day after 18 years and 203,000 km (160,000 miles). A extremely reliable car - that it never ran into major issues and it never broke down. I still enjoy driving it every day in its spacious, comfortable interior and wonderful sound system. It's definitely the best car we've ever had. We love our CL !"

"Hands down the best, most reliable car I have ever owned. I have had the car for 15 years and other than general maintenance the only things that have needed to be repaired was the catalytic converter and the radiator."

"I sold new and used cars 18 years ago and have had a 1995 Toyota Rav 4 loved it, a 99 4 runner, hated it, and have a new 12 Rav 4 and love it. I had a 99 Avalon and it was real problems. Got this from a used dealer, in good, but dirty condition. I have spent $15 bucks, and am almost to new condition, and paid $2,500 dollars. Car has 220,000 miles but engine is tight, interior was filthy, but cleaning is easy. First Acura/Honda I have ever even driven, and am impressed. Acura has built a clean easy to use, once you find all of the buttons, car that is quiet, handles great, good fuel use, and loaded with Bose sound, and cold air. At 65 I found probably my last car, but was worth the wait. Acura gets an A+++++++++++++++++++++ with me, and I'm had to please."

"I bought my car in 2001 with 45k miles on it. After 12 years, it now has approx. 205k miles on it. I love that it has not broken down on me, yet :-). I've had my auto shop do repairs they recommended. I also love that it gives me 30 mpg on the freeway. Minor gripes - I have to watch the oil level but that's a minor deal given the age of the car. I wish this car had back seats that folded forward to increase trunk space. Could have better sound proofing. I hope my next car will be this reliable and as great a bang for the buck. Will definitely be looking at Acura for my next car."

"Other than a poor turning radius and the fact that the seat belt seems to be placed farther away over your left shoulder than any other car I've ever driven, this car has never let me down. It has been 100% reliable and has a very powerful engine. It has always driven well and been more than great transportation. It has been a car I've grown to love, Acura's are a bit pricey, but well worth the peace of mind."

"I am the second owner on this 1998 CL. I can honestly say if I didn't need the additional passenger space, it would have been my car until it died. Aside from the timing belt needing to be replaced on the scheduled basis, this thing has run reliable with no issues. It handles like a champ and my five year old affectionately calls it, "daddy's race car.""
