Best Kept Secret

by K. C. from Phoneix, Ariz | January 19, 2012

This car is the best kept secret. It is fabulous car, it couldnt be more reliable. And its roomy and very nice to look at too. Great interior space, big trunk, great on gas, and always starts and gets us where we're going. Most reliable car ever. Best kept secret because it has reliability and low operating expense, yet it is comfortable, well equiped, and luxurious. Our milieage is getting close to 200k and the engine is quiet and smooth as can be. It just keeps running and everyone thinks the car is new because it looks so good..

No One Believes It Isn't New

by Mark from Clarksville, MD | August 21, 2009

I have had mine for 3 years now. It was very well taken care of and looked and ran like new. Had 78,000 on it when I bought it and now has 122,000 and the main issue is it is leaking tranny fluid. I think it is just a gasket. The driver window did fail, which I understand is a known issue with the car. For an 11 year old car, it is amazing!

All is well with Acura CL

by M Brown from San Jose, California | August 19, 2009

We have a 3.0CL and liked it so much we bought a 2.3CL months later. Both are outstanding. Very different cars to drive, but either is a wonderful choice. The 2.3 is light, fun, super quick, and has a very smooth ride. The 3.0 is heavier, even more luxurious with BOSE & heated seats, is extra quiet, & rides like a limosine. WE love them both and couldn't be happier with them. Great high-end features, comfort,& performance.

ACURA CL.3.0. ONE OF THE BEST!

by LAUREN from BRONX | June 10, 2009

MY DAD GOT THIS FOR ME AFTER I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL 4 YEARS AGO. THE MILEAGE WAS WAY LOW AND THE CAR WAS NICE IT HAD A REFLECTING LOOK, METALIC GREEN. I CHANGE THE OIL AS EXPECTED AND WHEN ME AND MY FRIENDS GO OUT WE HAVE A GOOD TIME. NEVER FAILED ME ONCE. VERY RELIABLE AND SUPER COOL.

"Most Reliable Car I've Owned"

by Mannyfresh from Washington, D.C. | April 29, 2008

I have driven a 1998 Acura Cl 2.3 all over the east coast on a weekly basis for the past 3 years and never once has this car failed me. Other then regular maintenance the only thing i have changed is the battery and that was only because my amplifier draws to much power.
