This 1999 Acura 2.3CL is finished in Milano Red over a tan leather interior and is powered by a 2.3-liter inline-4 paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle. The car was originally sold at Cush Acura in San Diego, California, and resided in the San Diego area until being relocated to Arizona in 2020. Equipment includes accessory spoiler, AM/FM/CD head unit, and double-wishbone suspension. Located in Phoenix, Arizona, this 2.3CL is now offered at no reserve with a clean CARFAX report on a clean Arizona title in the seller’s name.
The car is painted Milano Red (R81) and is finished in its original paint except for the front and rear bumpers, which were previously refinished. The seller notes that the driver-side high beam is not connected. The car has a correct exhaust system with dual stainless-steel outlets. A set of used OEM fog lamps with factory switch are included but not installed. The car has an accessory spoiler with an integrated LED brake lamp at the rear.
Factory 16” machine-finish alloy wheels are mounted to Firestone Firehawk tires in 205/55 with 2018 date codes on all four corners. The car is equipped with 4-wheel double wishbone suspension, variable power-assist steering, and front and rear stabilizer bars. It has 4-wheel disc brakes and anti-lock braking.
The interior is fitted with tan carpeting and parchment leather bucket seats which the seller states are in excellent condition. The center console armrest has been reupholstered. The audio system is a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD, and the car has steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, automatic digital climate control, and a power tilt/slide moonroof. The driver seat is 6-way adjustable. The dash is trimmed in wood, the steering wheel is leather-wrapped, and the car has dual illuminated vanity mirrors. The trunk includes a cargo net and is equipped with a ski pass-through opening. The car has keyless entry and power door mirrors. The vehicle has been professionally tinted with 20% Suntek film.
Instrumentation includes a 140-mph speedometer, 8k-rpm tachometer, and accompanying gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The 6-digit odometer reads 138k miles, which are original to the vehicle.
The 2.3-liter single-overhead-cam VTEC 4-cylinder engine is original to the car and was factory rated at 150 horsepower. Recent maintenance includes an oil and filter change and replacement of the timing belt, water pump, balance belt, coolant, cam seals, and ignition switch in November 2020 using factory parts where available. The valves were also adjusted at the same time. Power is sent to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual transaxle.
