Summary:

A true legend

Faults:

Nothing major has gone wrong with the car. The (break) light comes on when I floor the gas on first gear, this is so much fun, I think its just a way for the car to tell me to slow down, but other than that its built like a tank that'll never break. I have only had it for 5k miles, but I hope to have it for far longer than that.

General Comments:

This car sets the definition for the term bang for your buck, as it gives you the biggest one you can find in cars. One of the biggest reasons I got this car was because of its impeccable reliability remarks by everyone I know. I actually fell in love with it a long time ago when I rode in my friends dads legend. It had 200k in it and it still ran like a god. In a literal sense the car is a tank, with a monstrous engine to boot, and surprisingly it gets really good mileage. Also one thing I have to mention is that I have the manual, which makes driving this car a true pleasure. I treat her well, and if you have one, you should treat her well too.

Previous carAcura Legend

Summary:

Drives excellent and very powerful. Very nice body style

Faults:

The head gasket blew.

The rotors warped which cause the car to shake when applying the brakes.

The cooling system in this car is very difficult to maintain.

General Comments:

The car is very quick and rides smooth. I have no complaints when it comes to looks, handling, and performance. The cars engine runs quite and purrs like a kitten. Excellent interior styling. Although for such an expensive car the head gaskets blow easily on it. Its very sad to see that Honda-acura would not recall this problem. I didn't extensive research on the 1991-1995 legend and found that out of 10 legends 8 will blow the headgasket between 80,000 miles and up. This should not happen with such and luxury car. Fixing the heads on this car can cost you between 2,000-3500 dollars which is not worth the time. And from research it will happen again.

Summary:

I will never own another car except Honda / Acura

Faults:

Throttle Position Sensor

Worn leather interior.

General Comments:

When I purchased this car I had no idea it was going to perform so well with so many miles. Even before the TPS (throttle position sensor) was replaced this car ran so incredibly smooth and was quicker than I expected. This car performs so well that you would think it were a brand new sports car. It is very responsive, shifts when it should, and is faster than a 2004 Mustang Cobra and a 1996 Pontiac Fire bird. This is with acceleration as well as top speed.

Overall this car ranks very high in style, performance, and reliability.

Summary:

The name Acura speaks for itself.

Faults:

I absolutely love my Legend. I have only had it about two months now and it drives great. I have had a couple of set backs which I expected when buying a used car. The window seals leak. You hear the wind as you drive. And I am not to happy with the transmission knocking into 2nd and 3rd gear. Once having the transmission checked out they said nothing was wrong. The engine is very powerful and will go when you say go. Every feature on my car is working properly and I plan to get about 300K out of this baby.

General Comments:

The Legend is a quick car and hugs the road well.

The fuel pump switch in the trunk will loosen easily, especially with a full size spare and will make the car not start.

I will never buy and other car again. Acura's are the way to go. It is pretty pricey but think of it as an investment.
