Summary:

OK, but buy a later model

Faults:

Leaking oil from engine side covers.

Exhaust etc.

Changed cam belt / replaced water pump.

Most faults are due to old age or lack of servicing by previous owner.

For its age not a bad car...cheap motoring.

General Comments:

Because the car had really good factory fitted car mats used most of the cars life, I took them out and the carpet underneath is near perfect.

This Honda legend has really soft suspension.

Summary:

I love this car!

Faults:

A leaking brake hose and the electric aerial packed up. That's about it. Only normal wear and tear items apart from those two. The car is great to drive even at 13 years old.

General Comments:

Slightly underpowered below 3,000 rpm, and when I buy another one it'll be with a bigger engine. No rust yet.
