A great car all around. Performance. Economy. Comfort.
The transmission went out at about 45000 miles. There is a known issue with the cars from vehicles prior to the 2003 model year, a dealer-installed fix is available but it only seems to solve the issue 50% of the time. I did not pay a single dime for a new transmission and I got a new TL to drive while my CL was being fixed (took a week). Since this, I have not had a single issue with my car...
I really like this vehicle. I have managed 31 MPG on a 100 mile trip (cruise control, low wind, straight road with no stops). It can get up and go when I need it and is still quite comfortable for a front wheeled drive sport coupe. I'm quite satisfied with it and do not plan to replace it until I start having problems crop up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
