1990 Acura Legend LS 4dr Sedan


Review

If you can find one, buy it. Don’t haggle. ANY first generation Acura Legend in decent condition is worth saving. I had a 1987 and 1990 model, loved them both. Preferred the steering in the ‘87, but the motor, handling, and ride of the ‘90 were exquisite. Traded up to a new 1997 RL, and it was a disappointment.

Review

Parts for The 1990 Acura Legend are available (new & used) as any vehicle will need repair after 100K miles. The "VG new cars make VG pre owned cars" has a picture next to it of my car!

Review

I love this car! Our first Acura is a 25-year-old Legend L with only 15k miles. Like a time machine, it's new inside and out. Was purchased new in '89 by a family member. Always garaged and dealer-maintained, it had been sitting in a garage unmoved for 4 years. Trailered it home, drained fluids, replaced belts, tires, a few hoses and this baby is wonderful. One of the best cars we've owned, powerful and luxurious. Automatic trans shifts smoothly, quiet on the highway, great road manners. Well-mannered is the best description for this car. It moves capably and confidently, handles well and was built to last. Bravo to the Honda engineers...they certainly got it right on this one!


Best Features

The leather seats are comfortable, the suspension is taut and crisp, and the interior appointments are well-designed and functional. The remote radio control is particularly fun.


Worst Features

Wish they'd built them with a passenger airbag back then, but that was to come later.

Review

When I got this car, it was like mid-september. I really didn''t know how to react with it, but the more i got to drive it, te more attached i am with it. I've driven lots of cars in the passed, but none that can put up with the Legend. around 69000 miles, throttle response= amazing, and now just adding stuff that can repesent on who i am. a biggie it has, its that its never been under roof, so all the paint is faded, and the tod rear back seats are burned, but really dont matter. braking very smooth and right when you need it, and going up hill, you feel the power of the engine, its just amazing!


Best Features

The radio is one of them, even though its cassette, but you can ajust teh bass and treble, but more into detail, not like cars now, which they take the entire bass and treble panels individually and adjust it like that. The acceleration, my car is automatic, yet feels like a manual. The steering, quick response, very smooth with no pain.


Worst Features

However the exhaust could use an overhauling, doesn't quite put up with the engine. also big loooong tail lights, well, not very attractive. And could use maybe some 16 inch alloy rims, instead of 15's. and the headlights dont go very far, and the high beams look like if it was a 2011 car. Not the Best car to drive at night, lack of visibility, and could have more horsepower, around 165, instead of 141. Doesnt seem like a lot, but a lot of that difference is on the exhaust, engine capacity, and fuel consumption
