Hey whats goin on man I also purchased a 95 ls coupe recently and had the same issues. I took it to a acura dealer and got a full diagnostic. The issue was the idle control valve which cost 510.00 installed.
Hi everybody: I am looking at possibly buying a used 1993 or 1995 Legend and was wondering what repair costs in general are like. Are they considered high, average, or low in general? I have heard that Acuras in general are fairly expensive to repair.
I'm thinking about purchasing a 1995 Acura Legend Gs with 165,000 miles for $4000. What problems should I look for before buying? Is $4000 too much to pay for it? Thanks.
I just purchase a (1 previous owner) 1995 Acura Legend LS Coupe with 114,000 miles. The vehicle runs excellent except when I start the engine, the RPM sometimes dropped way down low after the first cranking that the engine shut down completely. Any advices to resolve this problem is appreciated. P.S. I love my car!!!
I realize this message is from 2000, but my daughter is interested in buying a used 1995 Legend LS, it has all the bells and whistles etc....they are asking $2500.00 and it has around 175,000 miles on it. It is now Sept. 2008 I would like to know if people think it is worth the money, and what are the things we should look for to go wrong. We are wondering ... Read More

Just as a price data point, we paid $3,000 in a private sale for a 1990 Acura Legend L Coupe / auto with 112K. Extremely well cared for with service records. I can't imagine paying $15K for a 95, even with only 55K mi. Way, way too high. between 8 and 10 depending on maintenance history.
Isn't the Legend really overpriced considering the model year and that it's the last model year ? can't be that many Legend loyalists paying all that money for it .. it is after all TWICE the edmunds private party price.
Can anyone advise me how to choose between a 95' Legend GS model (55,000 ml. good body and mechanical for US$15,000) or a newer 99' 3.2 TL for slightly higher mileage and around $16,000?? Which one is a better buy in terms of reliability, performance and re-sale value in 2~3 years time? Thanks.
I have a honda accord and an Acura Legend. The Legend has a slightly hard shift from first to 2nd gear but each higher gear thereafter is super smooth. My Honda has a similar shift patter. However, with 250K miles on it, the Honda does exemplify a little more of a rough shift from first to 2nd. I took it to the dealer multiple times and each dealer stated that the ... Read More
i was wondering if the 1995 acura legend L shifting problems that where discussed in some of the above letters had an problems with a clicking noise as well.I have had this car for about 4 yrs now and still no answers.The dealer says its normal but it holds like it is in overdrive or something and once the speed decreases to like 20 or below it feels like what ever ...

I am currently looking to replace my wife's old car (1994 Chevy Cavalier - Teal) with a 1995 Acura Legend L. I'm wondering is the dealer giving me a fair deal. It's got all options for an L (leather, keyless, automatic, and cd changer). 54599 miles(??) What is wrong with the prior owners? Pay almost $40,000 for a car and not drive it?????? I've had it checked by a mechanic, they ... Read More
Hi there, First time poster, but a grateful reader of recent months. I live in Switzerland and am about to buy my first Legend. I've got two cars under consideration, one a 1995, the other 1996. I'd be grateful for some advice or comments from this group about my best purchase. Here's the details....sorry to say I can't give a trim designation for either vehicle at the moment because they are ... Read More
I have recently come into possession of a 1995 Acura Legend GS, with all the works, but it also has 130,000 miles on it. I've never owned Honda/Acura cars before, and would like to know if anyone knows of problems occurring with this model at this stage. It appears to be in excellent condition, and I have not had any trouble in the last couple of weeks I've driven it, but ... Read More
The AC compressor on my 1995 Legend coupe (6spd, 74,000 miles) just died. The Acura dealer says: "This is called 'Black Death'. You'll have to replace the whole system, compressor, evap core, EVERYTHING. Total cost should be about $2,500." $2,500?!?!? Has this happened to anyone else? It's August and I live in Austin, Texas, so fixing the AC is not an option, but, fer crying out loud, $2,500? Anybody else have ... Read More

Hello All... I am considering a 1993-1995 Acura Legend for a used vehicle purchase. After looking at several vehicles, I have some concerns regarding the durability of the San Marino Red color. The cars I have seen seem to show poor gloss retention and signs of white surface haze. Any comments from owners experience would be greatly appreciated. -ltt
As mentioned before, I have two Legends, a 1991 with 120K and a 1995 with 50K. I have had the 1991 for nearly eight years, and just bought the 1995. They are really excellent cars, that is why I searched for a 1995 instead of buying new. They just don't make anything that compares in my mind except possibly a $40000BMW but that is too much to pay for a car ... Read More
I have two Acura Legends, a 1991 and a 1995. About two months ago, I had the problem described. The problem started with the speedometer suddenly going to zero and then back to normal. The next phase involved the D-4 light blinking. As with yours, the problem disappeared for quite some time and would then return. The problem was the speed sensor in the transmission. The cost to repair at the ... Read More
