    "For people that never owned Acuras from the "Golden
    Years" simply don't know how good these cars used to
    be. The current RL is the last one of the Made in Japan
    breed and it even doesn't compare to the old Legends."

    This is an intriguing statement from a former post. I don't mind buying a car with a few years on it, and always love to hear from people who say, "these were the best years in that model line" For those of us not able or willing to pay the MSRP and drive off the lot in a cloud of depreciation money following us down the street, I would like to know exactly what this post means. What years were the "golden years of Acura" Thanks.

    Someone posted awhile back about what he felt was horrendous gas mileage. Well, I do almost 100% city driving, so lots of idling and stop and go. And I have NEVER gotten over 20 mpg with IMPERIAL gallons which I believe work out to be about 16 mpg with US gallons. A previous V6 car that I had, a '95 Maxima, gave me similar city mileage. So I think the culprit is city driving and the other person shouldn't feel so bad. Also, at almost 3600 lbs, the CL-S is actually quite a porky beast, so in stop-and-go traffic, gas mileage will suffer.

    PS: I predict the next post will be from fastdriver declaring his love for the CL-S! :))
