1988 Acura Legend L 2 door Coupe 2.7 24v from North America
I got a great deal and the car is perfect for me
My transmission went out.
The passenger and driver windows need work.
The leather is cracking.
I got an awesome deal on my Legend. Even with a new transmission I only have 5000 in the car.
The car is in really great shape, I don't have any rust problems or anything of that nature.
The car is pretty quick, I have street raced it a few times with friends and beat a 97 Prelude. (maybe that's why I had to put a new transmission in it).
I have read a few other reviews and the problems people are having with their Legends sound like bad maintenance. If you read the Legend handbook there are a lot of things recommended to be changed at a lot less miles than these people have on them.
If you want a fun and very comfortable car for the money, it is great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I too have an Acura Legend 1988. I bought it not even a year ago for $3400 Canadian at an auction (great price). When I got in to it I thought wow, what a nice car, but then I started it. Immediately I had to replace C.V. joints, brakes, timing belt, tires, antenna and all of these are probably expected with an older car.
However the driver's side window does not go up all the way (about 2inches from the top), the car thinks that the driver's door is always open, therefore the light stays on at all times.
My transmission is an automatic, and when I first bought my car, the second gear did not work, and now neither does the first gear.
The leather on the top of the back seats is cracking as well as the driver's seat. However the air conditioning still works, the radio sounds listen-able, the sunroof does not leak, there's minimal rust on the outside, and I can tell that if there was a good/new transmission in it, it would probably be a fast car.
So my end conclusion is that once I completely redo my car, it will be a pretty good one.
