1989 Honda Legend A.L.B 2.7 V6 from Australia and New Zealand
They got the Legend bit right
Oil leak from a dodgy mechanic not tightening a few bolts.
Rear defogger not working.
Sunroof will not tilt no more.
A/C blockage going to cost the earth.
Seats have gone flat, and leather is cracked, not torn.
Boot will not stay open.
This is a great motor car; it hammers when you need it to, but it does not handle too good around corners. This I expect is due to its ride quality, which is great, and the fact that it's not a sports car.
My auto is a bit funny sometimes when cold. It like to take off in 3rd gear when it is put in drive for the first time when cold. After 3 seconds it is back to normal.
Sunroof slides well and does not leak, but will not tilt.
All windows are fast to open and close. The electric seats still operate fine.
The lighting in the car is great on a night time, and there is nothing in the car you can't find.
Other than the oil leak, this car has done well and I am proud to one it. I would buy another one and will recommend this car to anyone... unless they are tall like me; there is no headroom, something that all Honda's suffered from. I need to have the sunroof's shade open, otherwise it hits my head and annoys me.
My Honda, which is a 2.7lt V6 is faster than my 3.9lt 6cyl Falcon in a straight line. The only thing I really have to do with my car is put stiffer springs in it so it will handle better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought mine 18 years after the first owner, who is Swiss. Performance superb. Air con super.

This was the best model (s) bought new that we ever owned. Ironically, later the TL models were our worse! Major mechanical issues. Transmissions were terrible. Had no issues until after 100,000 miles with the Legends. Mainly heater cores and A/C issues.
