    My Acura Cl Type S — its leather, so during the days the seats get really hot. black on black is not good. the car excelerates pretty fast. so far the car is great. it runs smoothly. gas milage on a full tank isn't that great. maintenance on the car isn't that bad either. i would recommend this car to a friend, definitely.

    Pros: great car, runs smoothly

    Cons: black interior on the black colored car is not cool.

    Very Comfortable Coupe, Gas Mileage Could Be Improved — My first true daily driver car, very good for teenager due to small size, however possibly too much power for the size and luxury trim that comes standard, excellent sound system and satellite navigation, a great car.

    Pros: extremely comfortable ride, easy to drive and park, overall a very very
    nice car

    Cons: 2 doors, therefore small back seat, low gas mileage, only 19 in the city
    on premium gas if it's perfectly driven

    Great Car. Rather Large, And Our Is Silver, Not Red. — Love the car. I drive it to work and am always on the lookout for Colorado's finest because it's very easy to go very fast without being aware of it. This is a performance vehicle. It's the longest car I've ever driven regularly, and it was kind of an emergency purchase a year ago, but who cares? My next new car will be a more fuel-efficient Yaris. Promise. My DH will have to go over the finer points of performance with me b/c I'm a girl and as long as it runs well, I'm happy. Which it does.

    Pros: Street-legal race car. Fun fun fun.

    Cons: Low gas mileage. Ka-ching and OUCH.

    Luxury Plus Sporty — Beautiful car with amazing lines and for the price you get so much. Acura is ahead of its time, in 1991 they brought out steering wheel controls and all power seats and even memory seats. Acuras are my favorite brand of car and that will never change.

    Pros: Everything about this car is a pro

    Cons: nothing wrong with it... the shape is a LITTLE different but i love it

    Fast Afordable Car, — Great car except for a design flaw with the transmission which lead to my reason for getting rid of it.

    Pros: Fast!

    Cons: Waek transmission that will eventually quit.

    Amazing And Stylish. — I love the car. It's the true definition of a luxury sport coupe. It's quick and agile, while being very comfortable over long trips.

    Pros: All options are standard, gas milage, performance

    Cons: Premium gas required, sport tires, sunroof doesn't go back very far

    My Best Friend — This car was my first car. Never gave me many problems except for the cylinders misfiring. when it isn't jerking, it drives very smoothly and is overall comfortable. i have been through snow, water, hail, hot summers, and mud with this car but it hasn't broken down on me yet. Great car for any type of driver.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Drives smooth, Comfortable, Decent gas milage, Fun to drive

    Cons: Cylinder misfires,

    Great Car! — Perfect size, nice handling and just sporty enough without calling attention. The ride and acceleration is surprising and overall is a very luxurious and premium feel. Have had a great time with this car since it was bought new and just wish Acura would come out with a coupe again!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: Getting up in the years. :(

    Nice Ride — For a car with 155,000 miles on it, it runs almost the same as the day I drove it off the lot. Maintenance and upkeep has been far less than other cars I've owned. The ride quality is terrific and the road noise is very minimal. Power in the car is VERY good, with both low end torque and highway speeds. Overall, if this car was still available as a new model, I would probably be in line for it again.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Price, fit and finish, overall reliability. Normal driving by adult male. No regrets since buying new.

    Cons: Motor mounts seem to have been poorly engineered.  Multiple sets since owning, but replaced and seems fine today.

    says:
    This took for ever to break down. I bought it in 2003, used , with 100,000 miles on it, and I havent had a single problem. The transmission went out within the 2 years the other owner had it, and apparently I was a big issue, but nothing wrong since. It is pretty much a fun TL with a coupe. The damn thing wouldnt break so I couldnt have the excuse to buy another car for 13 years.On top of the sportiness, it was abnormally reliable. I managed to pack about 200,000 more miles on it (total of 300,000) and it still ran like new. It was legendary among my neighbors. It was a tad rusty, but some people say, the thing still runs without a hitch.
    Power Ranked 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye worse.
    "Amazingly quick and cheap for the time."
    Handling Ranked 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye worse.
    "Amazingly fun, mildly touchy"
    Looks/Style Ranked 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye better.
    "Damn"
    Front Seats Ranked 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye worse.
    "Heated seats in the winter makes some quiver in comfort."
    Back Seats Ranked 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye better.
    "Better than some sedans; you dont have to be a kid to sit back there."
    Value Ranked 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye worse.
    "Just a really nice car for a used 10,000 price in 2003."
    Would Buy Ranked 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye worse.
    "It is better"
