1990 Acura Legend L 2dr Coupe
I purchased the 1990 Acura Legend coupe new; service has exceeded manufacturer's recommendations. This has been the most durable auto I have owned (and that includes some nice cars: Alfa Romeo,BMW, Porsche). One significant repair in 133k (slave cylinder on clutch), even after fairly spirited driving. Strongest points: durability, comfort, quality of design and materials. Weakpoints: acceleration, weight/powerratio, cornering, dealer service costs. Those weaknesses, IMO, do not keep the car from being one I can highly recommend. For what it's worth--.
Sound equipment--reliable, resonant, good range, sonorous integrity.
Reduce weight wherever possible; increase horsepower/torque (the point is to reduce the weight/horsepower ratio); reduce front and rear overhang.
1990 Acura Legend L 4dr Sedan
Yes, it's a very low mileage car, so consider that. But for 15 years it has been flawless -- best car we ever owned. We have had several others in those years, but still have this one because we can't think of selling it.
Goes like a scalded dog. Comfortable seats, excellent handling.
Add cup holders and the same creature comforts for the front seat passenger as are provided for the driver.
1990 Acura Legend 2dr Coupe
Beautiful car, nice ride, but as with most high end cars, a pricey maintenance bill. But it won't break down and leave you stranded in the snow.
Power, smooth tranny, easy controls, nice styling, comfortable ride.
Change the rear antenna design; you can't open the trunk or close it without hitting the darn thing. a bit more leg room for the back
1990 Acura Legend LS 2dr Coupe
I bought it with 45,000 miles on it.
It is fun to drive but have had
repeated problems with the ABS system.
Replaced rear window regulators (left
one twice), steering rack, distributor,
and numerous other parts over years.
Now paint is shot and leather front
seats are severly cracked. Spending
$1000+ annually. Am replacing it with
a 3.2CL-S 6-speed.
Love the perfformance and styling. Can still put you in the seat. 5-speed is a definite improvement over automatic.
Need bette plastic parts (Like the pieces that break on the rear window regulators).
1990 Acura Legend LS 4dr Sedan
I bought this car from its original
owners about 1.5 years ago--since
driven it 44,000 miles (total of
194,000). Rides well, very
fast--hard to cruise at less than
80 mph. Acceleration is authoritative.
The car handles passably at a
modest pace, but front wheel drive
discourages enthusiastic driving.
Quality of interior materials is
excellent. Control layout and gauges
are superb, simple to operate. The
seats are comfortable and supportive.
DO NOT expect parts to be cheap for
these cars--many parts are now special-
order. On the other hand, this car has
never left me stranded.
Exceedingly smooth, quite fast. Many nice features; handy storage compartments; tinted glass moonroof is much nicer than a mere sunroof; rich interior, solid build quality, quiet engine. Good in inclement weather. 1986-1990 Legends are truly bargains today.
Exterior styling is elegant, but a bit too understated by today's standards. Parts and labor are frankly overpriced. Disappointing handling (for a BMW fan). Leather is wearing prematurely in some places. Prone to rust around the rear wheel wells. Other minor quibbles.
