1988 Acura Legend L 2.7 Liter from North America
The car that puts all others to shame
I purchased the car in November of 2003 from my cousin who was basically tired of the car and it's maintenance. At the time the car would constantly cut off and would only start after the engine was cool. I met the master mechanic at my local Acura dealer and he fixed the sensor problem for about $300.
All breaks were replaced at 170,000 miles.
The muffler had a crack in it and was replaced along with most of the exhaust at 185,000 miles.
The alternator was replaced twice.
The engine also had a horrible knock, which I tried to hide by using thick oil.
The engine died on me at a little over 197,000 miles due to a valve problem.
Right before the engine went bad, the car also need shocks, struts, and ball joints.
I would still be driving the car today if it were not for the high price of a rebuilt engine.
The car amazed people on a daily basis because they could not believe how old it really was.
This was my dream car, and it really hurt when I stopped driving it.
I have tried other cars and nothing compares.
I don't understand why Acura would stop making such a wonderful car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
