I've Never Had To Do Anything More Than Basic Maintenance. No Major Repairs .... Knock On Wood. — 2001 Acura CL-S Great daliy driver. Very quick and great handling. It has 270 h.p. and 230 ft-lbs torque. Low cost and just daily maintenance. Very fun to drive in the city or back roads. 20 m.p.g. around town and in upwards or 30 to 33 m.p.g. on the highway.... depending on my lead foot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The kick ass stereo, the great looks, and options for customizing.

Cons: It's getting old........

Love It — this car is surprisingly fast. I can take out most V8 trucks and hang with a lot of cars with bigger engines even though my little 3.2 liter V6 is stock except for cold air intake. it cruises too I "accidently" had it up to 130 mph on the way to denver and it was solid as a rock. I know it's not much compaired to some kids cars all suped up from drug money but it does well. even though it's 8 years old I don't want to get rid of it because I love it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, Practical, Quick enough, Good gas mileage, Dependable honda engineering

Cons: Some of the luxuries like the HiD headlights and the inverter that powers it gets a little pricey

A Review Title Would Be Nice — its and awesome car that is fully loaded and people just dont understand the raw speed that screams out of the engine. at 160mph not many cars go that fast out of the box.great buy just make sure you have an extended warranty if buying used

Pros: fast stock

Cons: tranny

Buy One — Corners like a tank but it amazingly fast on the take off. Beautiful interior and tons of cool features, but in needs a hand brake. The mileage isn't the greatest and the automatic stinks. Even the "tiptronic" feature doesn't really do anything for you.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Comfortable, fun and fast

Cons: Cornering stinks

Reliable Car — Not a bad car with so so perfomrance but knock on the wood so far it has been reliable except the transmission. It was high output car when it came out but all the everyday commuters have either match or bypass its HP.

Pros: Not really

Cons: not much

Eric's Cl-s — Compared to my 1998 Saturn SL1 it is a whole new world! I enjoy the performance, stereo, seats. The car feels bullet proof. I think they could have stiffend the frame. Otherwise give it two thumbs up. Tough to get my children in and out with the Coupe model, maybe next time the TL-S.

Pros: Love the performance.

Cons: Transmission went at 93K. (Lucky under warranty)

Silver Bullet — Type-S model really gives you the power to beat 3-series BMWs on the straights. Looks gourgeous after 8 years and still turns heads, especially with 15K HID lights. Gas mileage is decent enough and its a blast to drive. Only major problem is that Acura does have a recall on the 5 spd auto transmission.

Pros: Looks and Reliability

Cons: Recall and front brake rotors

Powerful But Far From Zippy 3.2 Type S. — The 260 hp can come in handy but I wouldn't take this whip on windy roads. Doesn't hug corners well and its turning radius isn't all that great for a coupe. (its long frame is based on TL chasis) Powerful but not zippy. Really like the cab and trunk space though. Always have been a fan of Honda/Acura interiors. Comes with great features for a car of its price and is comfortable to drive on long trips.

Pros: Features, quality, horsepower, interior.  

Cons: Overall performance, interior noise levels.

Acura 3.2 Cl Type S — quiet, responsive and a nice growl when u get on it... the manual mode of the 5 spd auto is immediate although I wish it allowed me to grab first gear. on the other hand, the auto trans shifts abruptly and the long term reliability of Honda automatics isn't nearly as stellar as that of their engines. I love the interior, black leather supportive seats, all controls in the usual Honda places. memory for the seating position is a bonus. wish it was better on fuel. brakes are great, VSA is not intrusive and it can be switched OFF at will.

Pros: its a honda

Cons: fuel mileage poor so far
