This is a NO RESERVE listing.

This is my 1997 Acura 2.2CL Premium with the rare 5-speed manual transmission.  The timing belt and water pump have recently been replaced along with other major service at the Acura dealer.

This Acura is in AMAZING, OUTSTANDING, INCREDIBLE condition. You cannot believe how pristine and gorgeous this car is for the age and mileage.  It is superb in every way- this car is a true find.

Every so often you will come across a higher-mileage car like this that is in impeccable, pristine and incredible condition.  These cars are incredibly rare.  To find an owner who is willing to keep a car in superb, near-perfect condition for this long is amazing.  

If someone told you this car had 20,000 miles you would believe it.  I cannot overemphasize how superb the condition of this car is.  This has to be the nicest 2.2CL for sale anywhere in the country, regardless of mileage. 

The 2.2CL is in my opinion, one of the best products the Honda Motor Company made- it is a superb combination of bulletproof reliability, luxury and economy (34mpg highway).  This car has the reliability of its cousin and platform-mate, the Honda Accord.  It has superb luxury and amenities of leather and all power options and it is a very comfortable car.  It also has outstanding fuel economy from its 2.2L VTEC 4-cylinder engine and 5-speed manual transmission.  This car has everything going for it.

I don't know where you would ever find a cleaner, better-kept example of this car.  This car is in near time-capsule condition; it is truly outstanding.

The paint and body are excellent.  The paint appears to be original with no known accidents. The body is straight, clean, rust-free (ZERO RUST) and extremely clean in every way.  Even the aluminum wheels are in superb shape and the tires are nearly new.  The exterior and body of this car are just superb- you cannot imagine how a 1997 car could have been this well-preserved.

The interior of this Acura looks basically like it did when it was new.  There is practically no sign of use or wear in the interior at all.  The leather seats are excellent, the carpets look new and the upholstery and switchgear is clean and excellent.  There is no wear on the radio buttons, climate control buttons, shift knob or steering wheel.  Every interior surface, switch and button looks like new.  Again, I cannot imagine how the interior of a 1997 car could ever look any better.

This car runs and drives perfectly.  It has none of the typical high-mileage squeaks, rattles or clunks.  This car is TIGHT, solid and drives just like a new vehicle.  It is quiet, smooth and powerful.  The engine, transmission, clutch, brakes, and suspension are all superb.  There are zero known mechanical or electrical problems- everything on this car works just like it should.  There are no warning lights illuminated.  This is a totally reliable and dependable vehicle in every way.  I wouldn't hesitate to jump in this car and drive to California and back. 

All of the power options and equipment are working- the power moonroof, power windows, power locks, cruise control, climate control and A/C, radio and CD player- all are working perfectly. 

I have a receipt from our local Acura dealer for a recent service which included the timing belt, water pump, drive belts, cooling system service, spark plugs and 4-wheel alignment for a total service bill of over $1300.  This car needs NO known mechanical work and it is totally up-to-date on service and ready for another couple hundred thousand miles of driving.  I see no reason this car couldn't make it to 400,000 or even 500,000 miles given the condition it has been kept in so far.  This car looks better and is in better condition than most 3 year old cars I see with 40,000 miles.

This Acura has the following equipment and options:
  • 2.2L VTEC 4-cylinder engine 
  • 5-speed manual transmission
  • Premium Package
  • leather upholstery
  • power driver's seat
  • power moonroof
  • automatic climate control with A/C (blows cold)
  • factory Acura Premium audio system with AM/FM CD (killer system!)
  • cruise control
  • power locks and windows
  • ABS brakes
I have the original books and manuals for the car as well. 

This is a 1997 car and as such it is not brand new.  Please expect normal signs of wear and use consistent with the age of the car.  Here is a complete list of every known defect in the car, no matter how small: there are a few dings along the passenger side and on the passenger door (garage wear), the front and rear bumpers appear to have been repainted (correctly) due to stone nicks, etc. There is a tiny spot of wear on the side bolster of the driver's leather seat. There is a very minor rattle (heat shield?) and maybe the tiniest leak in the exhaust. 

You can fly in to Cleveland (CLE) and drive this car home.  Alternatively you can have this car shipped, please call Angels Moving Autos at 530-245-0481 for a shipping quote.

This car is kept in my garage in Willoughby, OH.

Powerball winner's first purchase will be used Acura NSX off Craigslist

Thu, 08 Aug 2013 19:58:00 EST

We don't play the lottery very often, but when we do, even a five-dollar win is cause for celebration. So we can't possibly imagine how Paul White from Minnesota is feeling after scoring a third of this week's $448 million Powerball jackpot. It has to be an overwhelming experience, but we think he's going to end up handling it well if his first press conference is any indication.
Like some of us, White has a pretty reasonable idea of what his first purchase is, and boy, is it a good one: an early Acura NSX. Yes, this man has class. Rather than run out and buy a clichéd Rolls-Royce or Lamborghini, his first instinct is to go pick up a $30,000 Acura that he has been eyeing on Craigslist for months. It's enough to make us wonder if he'll use his winnings to get on the list for one of Acura's new NSXs when they finally come around in 2015.
Watch White describe what it is about the NSX that makes heart skip a beat in the press conference video from USA Today below (note: video autoplays).

Acura TLX GT racecar to make motorsports debut at Detroit Grand Prix

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 08:43:00 EST

Acura debuted its TLX GT racecar at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, and it looks like the racer is set to get its first competitive outing in Motown as well. The RealTime Racing team is competing with a single car driven by Peter Cunningham for the Pirelli World Challenge rounds during the Detroit Grand Prix from May 30 through June 1.
Honda Performance Development is developing the TLX GT with a direct-injected, twin-turbocharged V6 engine, based on the production, naturally aspirated version, and all-wheel drive helps maintain traction. A second car is being added to the effort later.
The turbocharged Acura sedan will face competition in the series from vehicles like the Audi R8 LMS, Cadillac CTS-V, Dodge Viper, Nissan GT-R, Porsche 911 and more. With the Detroit Grand Prix hosting the sixth and seventh races in the Pirelli World Challenge GT class schedule, it doesn't seem that Acura is expecting to win the series in its debut season, but it will surely gain valuable experience.

Honda reports $1.9 billion profit in first quarter despite sales lag at home

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 16:00:00 EST

Ford, General Motors and Chrysler have been living in a world of sunshine and buttercups after their April-through-June financials hit the newswire, and Toyota is doing pretty good as well. Honda? Not so much.
While Japan's third-largest manufacturer saw $1.9 billion in profits, the 5.1-percent jump was lower than expected thanks to a drop in its home-market sales. US sales also took a sting, as Honda hasn't been able to match the SUV and truck demand that are currently permeating the American market, despite an uptick in Accord sales.
Honda's initial forecasts targeted a take of 209.3 billion yen ($2.1 billion at today's rates), and while a $200 million shortfall is nothing to sniff at, we'd hardly take this as Honda being in trouble. And even with the dip, Honda hasn't adjusted its forecast for the fiscal year, which remains at 780 billion yen ($7.9 billion).
