1989 Honda Legend Coupe 2.7 litre from Australia and New Zealand
Brilliant car; superb build quality and a great ride
When I first bought the car from a dealer, the fuel gauge meter had to be replaced (under dealer warranty).
Brake accumulators had to be replaced (under dealer warranty).
After two years overseas, I came back with a limited budget (AUD $5000) to buy a reliable and comfortable car, that I wouldn't be ashamed to pick clients up in.
I was lucky to find a 1 owner Legend with the leather in near perfect condition, and service books complete.
After a few fixes by the dealer (under warranty), this car has been superb. The ride is smooth, and the acceleration ispunchy when you want to go.
For a car built in 1989, it has all the modern features that still work well; climate control, cruise control, full electrics, electric sunroof, lots of storage space, and great lighting and build quality.
The car is 'floaty', but it is a cruiser, and the turning circle is terrible (seriously terrible), but I love the car, and will keep it for some time.
Interior is very comfortable and clean, and as with most Hondas, everything is in the right spot.
Can be expensive on the fuel if you drive it hard, but if you drive normally you should get 400km per tank (60ltr).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have just purchased a 1990 coupe version, and I am very happy with it. It has great performance when needed, and great fuel economy.
I agree with the statement about the turning circle, as I have already hit one pillar in a carpark.
My speedo makes a funny squeaking noise, but I have been assured it can be fixed.
All in all, I am extremely happy with the car!!
