I got my first Legend in March of '09 with about roughly 204,500 miles on it, and it ran like a new car! I like the leather interior and the auto drivers seat, but what I especially like is the surprising speed and handling and the fact that you have access to all four speeds in an automatic (which is something most automatic owners don't even have access to today!). I like this car so much that when I'm done with it I think I will get a type 2 Legend with a 6 speed manual transmission. 4 door or coupe it doesn't matter 2 me because they both look good!
Speed. For a 200 hp rated stock car it seems a lot faster and its handling is good too, what I would expect from one of Japan's luxury/performance models.
Better fuel economy, I achieve about 20 mpg max in the city and that's on a good day. I would expect much more out of having to put premium gas in my tank!
