Solid, Competent Luxury Sedan
By Craig528 on


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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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.
