"Bought this car used in 2006 with about 20k miles on it and have put on about 40k more since then (early 2011) and I have hardly had any mechanical problems. The 6-CD player went out but was covered by the extended warrenty and replaced at no cost to me. Great power at low and mid rpms thanks to the VTEC engine. The first time I hit the gas in the test drive I was pleasantly surprised by the power. Also, I get great gas milage on the highway (~35 mpg) and decent enough in the city (~23). Super comfortable for short or long trips for 2 people. The backseats have decent enough leg room but getting in and out can be a bit of a pain, especially for those nimble. Power seats, sunroof, windows, climate-control are all standard and are no-nonsense to figure out. I'm looking to buy a new car and hope I am half as happy with my next purchase."
"Bought my 2001 CL-Type S new in August 2000, and currently have 147,000 miles on it. Still runs great, and I still think the interior styling rivals alot of the new cars today. Gas mileage is great - 27-35 mph - from everyday driving to long multi-hour trips on the interstates. Stereo system is the best-sounding I've ever heard. The most important thing I ask from a car is that it never leaves me stranded due to some mechanical problem, and the CL has not. It has only had one thing go wrong with it - and it was something fluky that Acura said they had never seen before. Some kind of valve in the exhaust system somehow got "locked" in the open position causing the car to sputter and stall. Got it replaced (outside of warranty, unfortunately), no problems since. My wife is pushing me to get a new car due to the high miles on my CL, but I hesitate because I love my CL so much!"
