If you have a soft spot for good cars then this Acura is likely on your list. And if it is not, you should put it there. Being a part of Honda’s luxury branch the 1999 CL has a lot going for it. When treated properly, it can last you a lifetime and you do not actually have to spend that much on it.
Do you have the model and want to get it shipped across the country? Maybe you are thinking of buying it out of state and you are wondering how car shipping works? I have you covered! In this guide, you will learn all you need to know about transporting a 1999 Acura CL. We from Corsia Logistics have actually shipped this exact model (and countless others), so we know a thing or two about it. Let’s get going!
What is the auto transport process?
At the most basic level, auto transport is simply getting your vehicle from point A to point B. But when it comes to the execution of the service, the devil is in the details. Here at Corsia Logistics, we strive to keep things simple and straightforward. Our process is easy to go through from the very beginning, when you approach us, to the moment you receive your vehicle from our carrier.
The first step is requesting your free car shipping quote. You can do that through our online form, or you can just give us a call. To supply you with an estimate, we’ll ask you to share a few important details about your car, the to and from it’s going and the exact service you need. We use that information to give a price that is specifically calculated for your case. That way you only pay for what you need, without artificially inflated flat fees and useless special packages.
When you get our offer, you can decide to book the service. This is the second step. At that point, we will provide you with estimated pickup and delivery dates. When that is done, there is one more thing left.
How to prepare your 1999 Acura CL for shipping?
Before a carrier can actually pick up your car, it has to be put in a proper condition. The things you need to do will vary depending on your situation. Have you just purchased the vehicle online? Then most likely the preparation process is already done by the seller. You can give them a call just to be sure, but other than that you are set. Now you just have to wait for one of our carriers to deliver your car.
However, if you have this car now and you want to ship it across the country from your doorstep, there are a few simple steps to follow. The first thing to do is to have it go through a maintenance check. That way you will make sure it is in running condition and there are no fluid leaks that may cause problems.
Along with your check, you should also have your car washed. By doing this you allow our carrier to do a proper inspection of the vehicle before it is loaded on the truck.
You should also make sure to remove all accessories that may be on your car. Detachable elements are best to be removed. They usually add unnecessary bulk to your car anyway, which increases the cost of the service. Not to mention that if they are not secured properly, they may be a potential hazard.
There are a few other things that go into the preparation process. Get to know them better by taking a look at our detailed guide on how to prepare a car for shipping.
Why are Acuras good as a used option?
Do you know what the key is to finding a used vehicle that is worth it? Research. There are certain makes and models that have gained a reputation for being reliable throughout the years. As far as Acuras go, you only need a quick search to see how praised they are. And that is not without reason.
As a luxury brand Acura delivers a lot of quality with all its vehicles. Even the older models look classy and their interiors have that awesome vintage aesthetic. There is obvious attention to detail in every little piece of the car.
However, visual appeal is not the only thing that matters. What good is a beautiful car if it will not even budge? Luckily, Acuras pack quite the power as well. You have to take a look at each specific model, but most of them are capable of giving you a good thrill.
To make it an even easier choice, you should know that Acura is ranked at the top of reliability lists. That means car problems are less likely and repairs are not that much of an issue.
What makes 1999 Acura CL so special?
Okay, so you get it, Acuras are awesome. But why go with this exact model? Are there not many others, from which to choose? After all, the CL is not even that popular.
It is true – there is a severe lack of appreciation for this masterpiece. For some reason, it has remained under the radar, and never gained much traction. Even when it is on the verge of becoming a classic, I am not certain that its popularity will rise significantly. But so what? I have three reasons that should solidify your choice of going with the 1999 Acura CL.
Let’s start with the historical one. Did you know that this model was the first Acura to be built in the US? In a sense, it is the perfect blend of Japanese engineering and US manufacturing. Since then a lot of other Acuras have also been assembled in the States, but the CL was the start of that. Honestly, it feels awesome to be driving a little piece of history.
The second reason has to do with its unpopularity factor. Because it is actually a blessing in disguise. Not being so well-known makes it rather unique in people’s eyes. And who would not choose something unique over a boringly common alternative?
The last reason is its sheer utility. Sure, the vehicle does not excel in any particular area. But it does what it does perfectly well! It can speed up if you want, or you can ride comfortably. It is compact enough, yet it feels roomy. And it is affordable while offering you an enormous sense of luxury, akin to that of German cars. Did I mention it has great gas mileage averaging at 22 combined? As you see, it is a good vehicle all around.
