1991 Acura Legend LS 4dr Sedan


Review

My Legend sat for 2 years before I bought it for $1800. It's previous owner had stopped loving it. A victim of being a divorce asset. With 164k already on the odometer, the 2 year side lining did its damage. However after some detailed cleaning of engine components, and a complete tuneup, it has been the best running, most reliable car I have EVER owned. Mine came with 16 inch Vigor wheels along with new, tall profile touring radials that deliver a superior ride. I like it that small performance tweaks make significant differences with this car. I rolled 250K while cruising at just under 100mph. No amount of money could buy my Legend. It is my Legendary Street Machine.


Best Features

Head light shape, flared front fender well lips. Wide stance, top end acceleration, SOLID construction. Engine bay logically laid out. Maintenance and repair ease (which isn't often) Many same size bolts under the hood. I love that this car will cruise at 100mph all day long... EVERYDAY.


Worst Features

installing after market hi-flow air filter, caddy converter, NGK iridium plugs (indexed), new trans filter/fluid with Lucas (mines automatic), New Slotted TPS metered to .96 VDC. New Gates fuel filter. Intake air vortex creator. All this added 42 hp and 11-12 m.p.g. to my Legend's 3.2 v-6s power plant

1991 Acura Legend L 2dr Coupe


Review

Fell in love with my Legend as soon as I bought. Reliability with comfort along with luxury and power. What more can you ask for? You'll be lucky if you will find another great car like this ever again. First and last car. Guaranteed that is how you will feel.


Best Features

3.2 V6 engine with 200 Horsepower, STOCK! It's a Honda motor therefore will last forever till the day it goes away. Coupe windows go down! Easy to fix if you have the right parts. Interior is fantastic! Love the great leather. Great overall performance.


Worst Features

The dreaded Head Gasket problem that arises if you don't take care of your Legend. NO CUP HOLDERS IN L TRIM! Estimated 18/25 Mpg. Little room in back seats for bigger passengers. Sometimes hard to find parts. Main relay usually prevents car from starting if circuit goes bad. No VTEC.

Review

289,000 miles and counting. Of course it burns oil & hesitates a little at launch but then it moves like it was new and powers the highways. QUiet inside and solid. Little things have gone like the alarm system that drove me crazy at 3am until I disconnected the horn and re wired it directly to the battery, thereby by passing the defect motherboard. Now when the alarm goes off the 20amp fuse blows for my brake lts so I keep a box in the console. The AC doesn't work anymore and the new refrigerant does not seem to be able to load. Leather shot in the front but hey...it refuses to die and my wife is begging me to put it to sleep! It is so good that it doesn't qualify for Cash 4 Clunkers.


Best Features

Power. quiet ride, solid doors, comfort, moonroof...


Worst Features

Headroom, cup holders, jacuzzi

Review

I've never been stranded in my Legend. Now with 255,000 miles on it, still running strong. Finally had to fix air conditioner at 250K. Other than that the car is a gem.


Best Features

Look, power.


Worst Features

Cup holders, but too late for that, they are not making this car anymore. A shame. The new Acuras are more tank looking than this sleek original Legend.

Review

This car is very fast and fun to drive. It also has a lot of interior space and pretty comfy in general. The sound system and electronics are high quality. The "leather" seats have quickly become ripped and torn. And the cooling system has given me many problems, it is always springing leaks or just generally not cooling well.


Best Features

speed, handling, space, luxury


Worst Features

cooling system, leather
