Ive been thinking about it alot lately. (Meaning today and yesterday) I've had my S for only a few months but I'm not really feeling it anymore. The stick shift is fun on the weekends just messing around, but driving it to commute 35 minutes each way every day on backroads and in traffic is just kind of a pain in the ass. The CL-S seems like a good comprimise of semi-sportyish but has tons of luxo and comfort. (I suppose the trans issue is separate because i could get an RSX with an auto) I feel sort of immature driving an RSX, it seems too ricer hatchback for me..stock. Kids trying to race me in civics and other imports, I dont know, haven't made my mind up, just curious if anyones gone this route. My dealer has a '03 ABP CL-S with 42k for $15695, I coudl probably trade my S for it just about evenly

you will never get an even trade since dealers rape you. K > * so you should keep the S and mod it.

Yeah I'd have to see waht the dealer could give me.


My mom traded in her 2 year old 25,000 mile car for a brand new one and got a check for 5 grand, last may. ;)

CL-S sucks. 2nd gen TL/CL-S have shitty trannys and break all the time.

cl-s are very nice cars, the only people with tranny problems are the one's who think they're racecars and treat them like racecars my best friends dad has had an 03 since 5kms and it now has 125,000 kms with no tranny replacement

i prefer the tl's tho... especially the 07 type s

No, its facts that those trannys suck. Go look on Acurazine and see how many people have had their trannys replaced.
