I've got a super clean and super reliable Acura 2.3CL coupe for sale.  I'm the third owner, first owner was an elderly lady, second owner was my father he purchased the car with 26k in 2006.  I have every service record from the original owner who took it to the dealer for every service.  When I took over ownership I performed all the oil changes myself but its major service has records.  I even have the original window sticker!! (Sold for $25k in 1999)

It's Taffeta white exterior with tan leather interior.  It's a rare 5 speed manual transmission. The manual is much preferred over the automatic transmission because all the CL automatic transmissions were known to fail before even reaching 100k.

The 2.3L SOHC engine runs like a top doesn't leak, drip or burn a drop.  The dealer sticker says 24 MPG in the city 31 on the highway but I've gotten 36 on the highway on long distance trips.

The car is in amazing shape and gets compliments all the time on how clean it is.  Most people think it's a much newer car.

Here's a rundown of what the car was equipped with from the factory:
-Leather interior with power driver seat (rear seats have been sat in maybe 4 times ever)
-Automatic Climate Control system
-Spoiler ($795 dealer option)
-Acura Wheel locks ($79 dealer option)
-Splash Guards ($159 dealer option)
-Cassette player ($300 dealer option)
-Trunk mat & Cargo net ($195 dealer option)
-Hand pin-striping ($249 dealer option)

The car is up to date on service and I took meticulous care of it (ask some previous girlfriends and they'll say the car got more attention than they did).
-Timing belt and water pump service was done 4k miles ago
-At the same time, all 4 rotors were replaced with drilled and slotted rotors, new brake pads, and stainless steel brake lines
-Transmission fluid flushed and changed with Mobil 1 synthetic gear oil
-Spark plugs changed
-Newer tires (10k on them if that) They are Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires ultra-high performance all-season tires ($120 each)
-The steering rack was leaking when my father first purchased the car so that was replaced as well.
-Driver side window motor was replaced as well
-New battery last year

The car has had the following modifications done: 
(NOTE: I have ALL stock parts and they will come with the car so you can revert the car to stock if you so choose)
-Kaixen HIDs (white color)
-Tein Basic coilovers.  Fully adjustable amazing coilovers.  Car is lowered but is still functional (I have speed bumps in my job's parking lot and I don't want to worry about scraping so it's a conservative drop)
-PSPEC Short Shifter (rare part is discontinued can't get it anywhere anymore)
-Weather-tech interior rubber mats (tan in color matches the interior)
-AEM Cold Air Intake
-DC Headers
-GReddy Evo2 cat-back exhaust (nice and deep sounding not ricey at all)
-Wings West front lip (professionally painted and mounted also a discontinued part that is very rare)
-Megan lower tie bar

The car has only one issue.  The ABS light is on (the drivers side rear ABS sensor needs to be replaced it's an $85 part from Rockauto. com)  Its been on for a while I just never got around to taking care of it.  The exterior is 9/10 and the interior is a definite 10/10.  The only issues with the exterior is a small chip on the rear bumper from someone backing into my bumper in a parking lot (it's the size of a dime I'll show it in a picture)  and there is a small rust bubble on the rear driver wheel well (this is smaller than a dime)  it's really small most wouldn't notice it but I'm very particular about my cars.  Lastly, some scumbag hoodlum stole the Acura emblem off the trunk of the car.  It's a $5 part at the dealer.

The only reason for selling is I have 3 cars and I don't have time to enjoy all of them.  Plus, I'm downsizing so I can get money for down payment for a house.  The car is located in Milford, CT and can be seen most days of the week.  I will help arrange shipping and will deliver the car within 30 miles for free.  Contact me here on eBay or text my cell phone (2o3) 8o3-3613.  Serious inquiries only, no tire kickers or joy riders.  Deposit of $500 due within 24 hours of winning.

Photos will come tomorrow.

Honda confirms 2014 Odyssey and Acura MDX for New York

Mon, 18 Mar 2013 13:30:00 EST

Look beneath the seats of a Honda Odyssey and you'll likely find a handful of that iconic loop cereal loved by toddlers nationwide. And to show that Honda understands its minivan's target market, it is using the breakfast staple to announce its plans to reveal the updated 2014 model at next week's New York Auto Show. While the announcement is creative, it unfortunately lacks much in the way of information, leaving us with little more than a vague teaser alluding to "some innovative new features."
As expected, Honda has also confirmed we will see the production version of the 2014 Acura MDX in New York. We expect the 2014 MDX to look very much like the prototype we saw in January at the Detroit Auto Show with only slight differences. The 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 will be offered with all-wheel drive or, in a first for MDX, front-wheel drive.
You'll find the official press snippets for both below, and we'll have live images and details on both from the New York show. Until then... Cheerio!

Honda signs on as Pikes Peak sponsor, race participant

Sat, 27 Apr 2013 15:00:00 EST

Honda plans to storm the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on June 30, entering ten cars in nine classes at the race to the sky, and signing on as a corporate sponsor. Part of the company's return to grassroots racing - if that's what you can call factory-backed efforts - the banners of Honda R&D and Honda North America will fly on these entries: a first-gen Acura NSX, an Acura TL SH-AWD, Honda CR-Z, Honda Fit EV, one CRF450R and two CRF250R motorcycles, a CBR1000RR motorcycle and a TRX450 ATV.
One more entry, details of which are to be announced later, will be driven by IndyCar pilot Simon Pagenaud of Schmidt Hamilton HP Motorsports. LoveFab (pictured above during practice last year) will be there with its new, NSX-based Enviate, but as a privateer entry.
Honda's been to the mountain before, with high-powered gear in 2012 and record-setting EVs in 1994 and 1999, but it's never made noise like this. Have a read of the press release below for more info.

Motorweek goes retro with '80s hot hatch shootout

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 19:57:00 EST

Motorweek's decades of history on television make it the perfect medium to look back into the automotive past and see how things are different now. It recently added old road test videos to its YouTube channel of the Acura NSX and Toyota Supra, as well as the Ferrari F40. For one of its newest flashback clips, Motorweek has exhumed an affordable five-car challenge of 1986's premiere hot hatches.
By today's standards, this is an eclectic field that features fondly remembered classics like the Volkswagen GTI 16-valve and Acura Integra. However, it also throws in some nearly forgotten contenders like the Dodge Colt Turbo and Ford Escort GT. The angular Toyota Corolla FX16 GT-S rounds out the group.
It's fascinating to watch Motorweek run the quintet through the slalom, down the drag strip and on various roads. What's most striking in this clip is the difference in the definition of a performance car between then and now. With its 16-valve, 1.8-liter four-cylinder, the GTI is the burliest of the contenders with 123 horsepower, but it still takes 8.8 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour. By today's standards, that would make it a plain-jane economy car, and not even a particularly quick one.
