I bought this car from its original
owners about 1.5 years ago--since
driven it 44,000 miles (total of
194,000). Rides well, very
fast--hard to cruise at less than
80 mph. Acceleration is authoritative.
The car handles passably at a
modest pace, but front wheel drive
discourages enthusiastic driving.
Quality of interior materials is
excellent. Control layout and gauges
are superb, simple to operate. The
seats are comfortable and supportive.
DO NOT expect parts to be cheap for
these cars--many parts are now special-
order. On the other hand, this car has
never left me stranded.
Exceedingly smooth, quite fast. Many
nice features; handy storage
compartments; tinted glass moonroof is
much nicer than a mere sunroof; rich
interior, solid build quality, quiet
engine. Good in inclement weather.
1986-1990 Legends are truly bargains
Exterior styling is elegant, but a bit
too understated by today's standards.
Parts and labor are frankly
overpriced. Disappointing handling
(for a BMW fan). Leather is wearing
prematurely in some places. Prone to
rust around the rear wheel wells.
Other minor quibbles.
