My Legend sat for 2 years before I bought it for $1800. It's previous owner had stopped loving it. A victim of being a divorce asset. With 164k already on the odometer, the 2 year side lining did its damage. However after some detailed cleaning of engine components, and a complete tuneup, it has been the best running, most reliable car I have EVER owned. Mine came with 16 inch Vigor wheels along with new, tall profile touring radials that deliver a superior ride. I like it that small performance tweaks make significant differences with this car. I rolled 250K while cruising at just under 100mph. No amount of money could buy my Legend. It is my Legendary Street Machine.
Head light shape, flared front fender well lips. Wide stance, top end acceleration, SOLID construction. Engine bay logically laid out. Maintenance and repair ease (which isn't often) Many same size bolts under the hood. I love that this car will cruise at 100mph all day long... EVERYDAY.
installing after market hi-flow air filter, caddy converter, NGK iridium plugs (indexed), new trans filter/fluid with Lucas (mines automatic), New Slotted TPS metered to .96 VDC. New Gates fuel filter. Intake air vortex creator. All this added 42 hp and 11-12 m.p.g. to my Legend's 3.2 v-6s power plant
This car is very fast and fun to drive. It also has a lot of interior space and pretty comfy in general. The sound system and electronics are high quality. The "leather" seats have quickly become ripped and torn. And the cooling system has given me many problems, it is always springing leaks or just generally not cooling well.
I bought this car new in 1991. It has been the best car ever. At 18 years of age it still looks brand new. Classic styling never looks old. My oldest son has been driving it the last 7 years and it now has well over 200K miles on it. It still runs great... a testament to what great engineering and meticulous upkeep will get you. One word about the lack of cup holders. In 1991 they didn't have cup holders in cars other than minivans!
Great looks. Bose sound system. Reliability. Smooth ride.
We got our '91 Legend sedan in 2002. Since then we have had basically 0 problems. I love the design of this car inside and out! Extremely fun to drive! Very powerful car. A timeless beauty. Amazing car!
Purchased used in 1998 with 67K miles 5 speed manual trans not auto. I am the second owner. Clutch was replaced at 60K miles by previous owner. Vehicle currently has 118K miles and still runs like new. Exterior still has mirror shine with the exception of bubble spots above rear wheel well and around windshield. No rust, just bubbles. The bubbles were there when I bought the vehicle. Quality interior: no cup holders, but this was designed as a sports sedan not a family vehicle. Carpet, floor mats, and upholstery still looks like new. Bose stereo ok. Easy to replace with aftermarket if you desire. If you are considering buying one you will not be disappointed. MPG 22 city/29 highway premium.
Quiet engine, handling, horsepower to weight ratio. It is easy to reach 120+ mph before you know it! Comfortable seats. Peace of mind knowing that this vehicle will last another sixteen plus years with regular maintenance. Honda dealers can perform maintenance on this vehicle.
Any improvements were addressed and implemented on future Acura models. This vehicle is easy to maintain for the backyard mechanic, yet elegant enough to drive that special someone to a romantic night on the town. If you are in the market for a good first or commuter vehicle you cannot go wrong here
