    I'm still in a quest for a daily driver.

    Right now still on top of my list is a 2003+ Honda Accord, however I was at a lot today and took a ride in a 2001 Acura CL 3.2 Type S. I have to say, I was impressed. She had some balls on her, and the ride was pretty smooth. I enjoy the Accord's looks alot more, but they were pricing the CL at 12,990 whereas I'm finding Accords for about 14-15k in my pricerange, same miles (60k miles)

    Simple question, anyone have opinions of them?

    I heard the auto trannies suck, but I'll be visiting that issue with the Accord or Acura regardless... it's a daily driver, so I won't be beating on it hard.

    Thanks :)

    I wouldn't get either, based on the trans issues. Is the accord you want a coupe or sedan?

    And actually daily-drivers in the city get beat on really hard, if you think about it. stop-and-go driving with constant transmission shifting.

    I'm also in the same boat, cant decide between the 03 CL-S 6-speed and Accord EX V6 6-speed Coupe.

    I've test driven both, they're quick and have nice interior. Accord definately looks better, but the CL-S has HIDS, 20 HP extra......tough decision....
