Acura Cl 3.0

Read about this: Acura Cl 3.0

"So I'm not 100% sure why this thing keeps running, but it does. Its like the Terminator in, well, any of the Terminator movies. Face? Arm? Who needs those? I've owned the car for about 8 years now(meaning it was already 11 years old when it was purchased assuming it was built in 1996). This car has seen a LOT. Like, I'm talking about things normal cars shouldn't have to go through. Because I dont have a lot of money, I've torn out most of the un-needed bits as they stop functioning normally, or as I attempt to diagnose other issues. Catalytic converter? Gone. EGR valve? Gone. 02 sensor, Mass air flow sensor? Gone. A lot of the interior components have begun to break down, as can be expected on an older car. The windows no longer align properly in their tracking, the passenger door doesnt open. The cigarette lighter/charger doesnt work. Why did I rate it so high? The powertrain. Mother of god this thing wont give up. At one point I had an oil leak(again, not unusual in an older car) that was more serious than I realized. A couple months went by and I noticed the throttle wasnt very responsive and my floorboard was getting a bit warm. I stopped and checked my motor and found out that there was less than a liter of oil left in the motor. Filled it back up and its been running fine ever since. That was 2 years ago. I feel like things like that shouldn't just be "ok", but it was. Summary: The interior of this car is cheaply made. Its very plastic and cheap feeling. Knobs will break off. Dont buy it for the interior. Under the hood, you'll have some issues with parts and pieces. The alternator, radiator hoses, misc valves and sensors are all on bought time. The super expensive bits (motor and transmission) are in it for the long haul. If you're going to buy this car, buy it because you need a cheap car that is going to get you to work in the morning. Thats why its a 10/10."Read more...
Worth Every Penny. An Excellent Drive In All Aspects And For A 1999, Holds Over Some Modern Cars. — A perfect balance between luxury and sport. Got a great deal on it used and I have had it since October of 2010 and it hasn't disappointed me at all. It is always such a smooth ride. With a V-6 engine, it accelerates very quickly and the 200 hp really packs a punch. Brakes work fairly well and the handling is decent; nothing to complain about though. It's too bad they didn't make the 99' year 3.0 model have a manual transmission, but for an automatic car this thing rips; and I'm not trying to toot my own horn. This car has said to have transmission problems after lots of mileage on the car, but I am just over 200,000 miles and I have not had any problems. I am a huge fan of the body styling for the car, very unique, especially the rear. The inside is full leather and has a very spacious back seat for a coupe. It has a 17.2 gal. fuel tank and gets 20 mpg around town and 28 mpg highway, so it's not the greatest on gas if you're constantly raising the rpm's. Overall an excellent car and to me it is extremely fun to drive and I would definitely purchase another CL in the future.Read more...
