Love hate car
From day one this Acura CL had several fit and finish problem. I never wanted to drive it home, but I did and have never been fully happy with it. Acura HAS DONE SOME THINGS WELL AND SOME NOT. After owning an Acura Integra, I thought I could expect a well engineered CL, it's not. My standards are high and Acura is hardly a contender in the luxury/performance cars. The brakes and transmission are a joke and were not meant for a high horsepower 2- door car. I was lucky and the dealer tried three times to repair the rotors that warp easily. When that didn't work, Acura gave me $600 in cash to do my own repair.
I must say the dealer has been very good about fixing everything, however I average a repair about every 4000 miles.
The newest problem is the AC readout displays "20".
To Acura's credit I have not paid for any repairs, making the car a low cost car to own. I love cars, and many of the loaner cars have been as good or better that the CL.
I don't think I will ever trust Acura to purchase a new car from, as their quality is too hit and miss. Many people who know me have purchased Lexus knowing all the problems I have had.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
