1991 Acura Legend LS 200 h.p. from North America
A well made, comfortable and reliable car
ABS system failed at approximately 75,000 miles.
Brake system Master cylinder failed twice.
Air conditioning intermittently blows warm; dealer could not fix until I found an Acura Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) identifying the problem as a cracked circuit board under front passenger seat.
Driver window slowed to crawl, replaced once; now doing it again.
Door lock system buggy; will lock your keys inside with engine running.
Driver seat leather split on left bolster.
Transmission mounts failed twice and had to be replaced.
Motor mounts failed and had to be replaced.
Radiator failed at 115,000 miles.
Notwithstanding the mechanical problems described above, this has been a comfortable and reliable car.
It has plenty of torque, and performs very well for such a large car.
A very comfortable, and on balance, relatively inexpensive to keep.
Acura did offer "good will" assistance on some of the major repairs; the ABS system and master cylinder being two example.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

In order for your windows to not be sluggish on an older car, the seals on the window track need to be lubed occasionaly. Silicone spray has always worked for me. Get a can of it with an attachable tube on it and spray it into the window run channels where the window travels up and down. It won't leave residue on the windows. Good luck!
