RARE very hard to find 2003 3.2 CL Type S Six Speed M/T Black exterior with Black Leather interior!

I have owned this car since 2008, since then I have only put on 22K miles.
Adult owned and garage kept.

I have exclusively repaired and maintained this vehicle since acquiring ownership.
I am a 100% Honda factory trained Master technician and Master ASE certified currently working at a Honda dealer for the last 12 years.

All major services done including the timing belt service which includes the timing belt, timing belt tensioner, water pump, cam seals, crank seal, new drive belts and fresh coolant.
All valves have been inspected and adjusted, new valve cover gaskets and seals installed.
All six spark plugs replaced.
All parts noted above are 100% Honda factory parts.

SPC Rear adjustable control arms for caster adjustment

Comptech
T-304 Stainless Steel Headers and downpipe

All typical problems have been addressed and fixed using Honda parts such as:
Main Relay
Converter heat shields
Both front lower ball joints
Interior bulbs, illumination or controlled
Power steering pump
A/C receiver/dryer with new o-rings (this was repaired 2 years ago A/C works perfect with no other leaks)
Brakes
Tires (Yokohama)

What doesn't work?
Auto dimming rear view mirror, rear window is tinted I never needed to use it.
Drivers heated seat BACK, bottom still works
Passenger heated seat bottom (passenger side does not have a heated back element)
THAT'S IT EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS!

Some of the questions I have been getting:
Q: Why are you selling your car?
A: Couple of reasons, need more space in the garage family has four cars three of them are mine : )
I hardly drive it anymore and I've owned it for 5 years time for something else....just don't tell my wife.

Q: How loud is the exhaust?
A: It's not loud, louder than stock but not loud. Comptech really did their homework. The sound is unique, deeper and a little throatier than stock.
It is not you typical "tuner" exhaust. Not droney, raspy or sound like a pack of bees coming. You can drive on the highway with no radio on and have a conversation at normal voice levels.

Q: How stiff is the suspension?
A: Handling was greatly improved without sacrificing comfort, its not "slammed" All suspension angles are 100% to factory spec.
Absolutely no uneven tire wear problems, we have taken this car on many weekend vacations its very comfortable.

Q: Do you have all your receipts?
A: I do have a good amount of receipts but not all, I would happily show you the ones I have.
 Doing all the repairs myself  its a little hard to make a legitimate receipt to myself.
Everything I have said I have done can be verified with an inspection.

Q: Is there any rust on the body?
A: There is no rust on the body. It is hard to photograph the small scratches and dings. The paint is very reflective and the pictures usually just show whatever is reflecting off of the paint. The most affected area is the hood and front fenders there is what people refer to as  "peppering" or small rock chips from day to day driving. Even with that said the majority of people do not believe me when I tell them the car is clean....until they see it person and then they are like "wow this car is clean."


If you would like to talk in person please email me through eBay and I will give you my phone number.

Ford, Toyota clean up in Best Car For The Money Awards

Fri, 22 Feb 2013 15:44:00 EST

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.

Acura TL bursts into flames moments before being traded in at Ontario dealership [UPDATE]

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 13:29:00 EST

Watching your car burst into flames before your eyes is never good news, and it's even worse when you're mere moments away from trading it in at the local dealership. This Car-B-Q blaze apparently erupted at Acura 2000, a dealer in Brampton, Ontario. As the video tells us, the unlucky customer saw his 2004-2008 Acura TL trade-in suddenly catch fire and go up in resale-value-killing smoke.
According to the hyped-up cameraman (who evidently works next door at Northwest Lexus) and his eccentric play-by-play commentary, this Acura owner is about to be left without a ride home and might want to consider switching to a Lexus instead.
Scroll down to watch video of the drama unfolding as fire fighters put out the mysterious blaze before anyone - except the car - was harmed.

Honda recalling 405K vehicles over airbag issue

Thu, 19 Sep 2013 09:58:00 EST

Honda is in hot water due to an airbag glitch that is causing it to recall 405,400 vehicles. According to the campaign, the supplemental restraints might fire for no apparent reason. 342,000 of the affected vehicles are 2003 and 2004 Odyssey minivans, which gels with a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation we reported on in June.
Joining the Odyssey in the recall is the Acura MDX, with 63,400 units covered from the 2003 model year. Unlike the van, though, the MDX's recall covers Japan and Australia, in addition to the US and Canada. Both vehicles are suffering from an airbag control unit that is prone to malfunction when exposed to electrical noise, a condition that can cause the airbags to deploy without warning. Although no crashes have been reported in such scenarios, there have been some injuries typical of airbag deployment - abrasions and such.
Honda will be mailing recall notices to owners near the end of October, asking them to bring their vehicles into the dealership for installation of an electrical noise filter. The repair will take about an hour and be free of charge. Scroll down for the official announcement from Honda.
