I always thought Acura made a mistake when they stopped making the Legend. I bought mine new in 94. I loved it so much I had the heads done when the gasket went on it last year. Some people have had BHG issues, some haven't. Mine was properly maintained and it still went. I still however, LOVE this car. Along with the HG's, the only problems I've encountered are a bad main relay, oxidized paint(to be expected after 15 years), cracking leather(also to be expected), and the typical HONDA rear wheel well rust issues. The styling is unmatched and the ride is sporty and luxurious.

Purchased with 80Kmi on it. I put another 80Kmi on the car before I killed it (accident). Amazing car. 1 yr before I totaled the car, I filled the tank with 1/2 107 octane, 1/2 98 octane. Car ran like a dragster for the next 2 weeks. Thereafter, my fuel economy steadily rose. When I bought the car, I barely made 300-320mi/tank. After the 107/98 octane mix, my fuel economy rose to just over 400mi/tank. I always, always used 93/94 octane. I will miss that 6 speed manual tranny. Only thing I didn't like about the car was the front wheel drive. Car looked like a sleeper, but I'd smoke just about anyone...and I'm no leadfoot.

Well, I bought this vehicle on eBay 2 years ago from a gentleman in TX. I previously had a 1994 Legend L sedan bought new. But I always wanted an LS Coupe. I admit I'm biased, but I still think its one of the nicest looking sports coupes every made. Mine has 185,000 miles on it, and the engine shows no real sign of dying anytime some. I've had to replace the normal things - driveshaft boots etc, but that's to be expected. Its reliable, fast and stylish - I love it.

I am the 2nd owner of my 94 LS coupe
and bought it with 42,000 miles.
Almost no repair cost and very little
maintenance. Just put gas in it and
change the oil every 3-4k miles. This
is the best and most reliable car I've
ever owned. Its my 2nd Acura Legend
coupe and I've put more miles on this
car than any other car I've owned.

I have 210k miles. Looked up some cars
in the past but none would drive and
look like this. People still stop me to
say how great the car looks or if I
want to sell. Always do the scheduled
maintenance, now only every 30k miles
(this is much much I drive a year now).
Except for this I didnt spend more than
$1k on problems, and the car had to be
towed just once over its 210k miles
when the ignition messed up.
So what I do? I repainted it, just put
new leather on the seats, will replace
mats and a few things, and drive
another 210k miles I guess. And then
give it to my son.

When I purchased my Legend, new in
1994, I never thought I'd still own it
in 2003. I love this car! It has
never had any problems, and is still
fun to drive. I started looking at new
cars in 2000, just because I've always
gotten a new car every 5-6 years, but I
have yet to find a car that drives and
looks as good as my ( now old) Legend
Coupe. I may drive this car forever---
it sure seems like it will run forever.
The base Legend is dropped from the lineup and a GS sedan is added. The new sedan offers the same 230-horsepower engine found in the coupe as well as traction control and a sport-tuned suspension. A new grille and bumpers find their way to all Legends and the LS coupe gets a new chin-spoiler. An automatically tilting steering wheel raises as soon as the key is removed from the ignition. Further improvements include a steering wheel position memory that is incorporated into the seat memory feature.
