1990 Acura Legend L Coupe 2.7L SOHC 24v from North America
The perfect luxury car
Slight wear in the leather seats.
Lifter "ticking" noise (when cold) @ 121,000.
New brakes @ 122,000.
First off, the "ticking" noise. The design on this engine is one that causes the lifters... to make a "ticking" noise when the engine is cold.. What I recommend is, a can of engine restore.. this will work for only 200-500 miles. Also you can, let it warm up normally for 5 minutes, then rev the engine to 3000RPM for a couple of seconds and the noise goes away. THIS NOISE IS NOT HARMFUL TO THE ENGINE.
This car has a great amount of power.
The steering of this car is among the best.
Great suspension and ride.
Great interior positioning of items.
Smooth V6 engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's amazing how consistent this car is, lifter noise start-up, inherent rust problems or potential treatment if you know about it's history first. Classic car, oh yes, never to be another. Leather needs constant attention.

I have the same lifter noise when engine is cold. My mechanic told me that was normal on this engine after 100k. My car is a 1990 Coupe with 123,000. By far the best used car I have ever owned. The power and smooth ride for a car reaching 15 years old is amazing. Purchased the car for under 2-large. A little crusty around the wheels and the legend sign on the trunk, but overall a great car.
