Actually if you look at a Motor Trend comparison a few months ago, the Acura 3.2 TL was compared against a couple other formidable competiors and did 0-60 in 6.7 seconds.... That's not bad at all for just a regular TL without the S-type modifications on the CL-s...Originally posted by Nate:
We'll take the NSX's 3.2L, but the one from the CL is total crap. Hmmm, actually, are they anything alike???

Yeah, I realize the CL engine has a lot of power and gets great gas mileage and is probably pretty reliable, but since Geoff might read my post I thought I'd just say that it sucked....
The CL is built on the same platform as the current Accord.Originally posted by black300_2:
I traded in my accord coupe V6 for an IS, I was surprised that the IS really isn't that much quicker (accord v6 0-60 = 7.7 road&track), it felt much quicker. I also considered the CL-S, and although it was fast as sh-t, it kinda reminded me of my accord... does anybody know if they are built on the same platform?

Honda makes some okay cars for a pretty low budget, but I feel that Toyota is a little more dedicated to performance given their history with the MR2, Celica, and Supra. I mean, Honda can make some great engines, but what does Honda have to show for their showroom models that is a "super-wow-spectacular overall good performer"? (NSX is okay, but 80K?! Come on!)
