"I bought my 2003 Acura CL from a top-notch local Acura dealer. I feel I got a bargain given I had little to spend on a car. I do not require a high-performance car or lots of bells and whistles given I do not drive much except for personal convenience not work. I have maintenance done by the superior car-dealer service. Maybe it costs more than a local garage, but I get the best care. I only have had to have basic services - oil change and tires rotated and balanced. I am not likely to sell this car until it totally fails!"

"I have owned this car since it was brand new, 13 yrs later She still runs perfect. The only issue I have had with this Car and every other CL owner can agree with Me on Is the faulty Transmission. It has gone on Me 4 times, But I must admit, Acura covered it every time. The last transmission was replaced 65,000 miles ago. I pray it doesent go again."

"Let me tell everybody. My 2003 Acura 3.2 CL S Type has been a great car. I haven't had any problems with this car. It's been a great car for over 10 years. I just need something newer. I'm telling you, Acura makes a great car! I would just like to have something different and something newer."

"I inherited this car in 2005 from my late father with only 8,000 miles on it. I have kept up on the maintenance and kept it in the garage. The maintenance record is available. Passes smog test with no problems. No leaks. No rust. It has a few dings. Great ride! Very comfortable. Very nice Bose sound system. Huge trunk. Decent mileage averaging around 24 mpg city/open road. This car has lots of zip - you can reach a high speed without realizing it. Its a very smooth, powerful, quiet ride. The back seat sits two comfortably, three in a pinch. The back seat has a fold down center armrest with cup holder. Two-level heated front seats. Does not have the Navigation System. Has newer tires with excellent tread. We love this car! This is a car that should go for many more years with no problems. This 2001 CL has had no transmission problems at all. Its been totally reliable and its fun to drive."

"I love this car. It has been very reliable and cost effective since I work 60 miles from my home. If Acura still made this car, I would buy another. Unfortunately, they don't and I don't know what I'll buy when this one dies."
