"Excellent mechanical condition! Has been in our family since original purchase- has been garaged and well maintained with all service records available- minor door dings on drivers side and a few blemishes on exterior, overall very good condition inside and out!"

"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."

"Made mistake to get a toyota camry because it won't start and I found out my battery was 7 years old. This is a reliable but my regretable decision to buy another was a very bad mistake. In my opinion I could be driving this for another decade."
