With about 126,000 miles currently the car doesn't have a great deal of wear on the engine. I have never had a problem with the engine. However I have had problems with various other non-mechancial parts on the vehicle. Replacements include: driver's side door handle with electronics, master cylinder and ignition switch. All of those with installation totalled $1000 plus. The engine is fairly powerful for the time period, however the gas mileage is decent at best. I average 16-18 mpg in a suburban area and on the highway 25-30. The ride is smooth but somewhat unresponsive. Turns are clumsy and makes the car feel heavy. Interior is rather plush for the base model.
Engine power, comfortable seats, car design, power seats and large trunk
Well since the Legend was replaced in 1996 this is pointless, but nonetheless I would increase gas mileage, shorten the length of the car, make more leg room for the back seat, decrease weight, change to a rear wheel drive, make tilt standard, build them in Japan not the U.S.
