1998 Acura EL

Trim: 1.6 EL Sport

Regret selling
I drove my EL for nearly 200,000kms and thoroughly enjoyed the car. The interior design was nothing special and the cupholders were essentially useless, unless being used as a change holder. The manual transmission was very user friendly and at nearly 300,000kms was on the original clutch. Though reliable for the most part, the things that did go wrong were costly (A/C compressor, window regulator, exhaust manifold). Though compact in size, the interior was surprisingly accomodating and at nearly 300,000 looked nearly new - very little fade, scuffs or damage. The body of the car also held up well - except for rust around the rear wheel wells (common with these cars). When driven gingerly, the fuel consumption was great, but to get the most out of the engine results in significantly higher consumption numbers. It was also neat to have a car not available anywhere else but Canada.

Stylish and economical
Nice upscale starter without being too expensive. I loved this car, but it was too small with the growing family.
Bought used, 2 years old. A little hassle in the beginning with the transmission being iffy after a year, but dealer rebuilt it twice and no problems since.

Acura is my first car
First car is always the best! This car is quite sporty and fast! 14 years and still running.. may not be the best condition right now but it gave me a good run for the bucks.
