87 Legend Sedan 5spd — i absolutely love my Legend. it is truly Legendary. with the smooth 2.5L V6 engine, and wonderful 5spd gear box, zipping around through town is fun and easy. its built ultra solid, it can take a good thump and keep moving like nothing happened.

Pros: strong acceleration, smooth engine, lots of interior space.

Cons: no ABS, airbags, or CD player.

The Acura Legend — i LOVE the acceleration with my car! it has 193k miles and it hasnt stepped a foot wrong since i have had it! brakes are superb, steering is precise, unmatched reliability, superior build quality. even when i was doing some work on it, the bumper was completely unbolted from the car, and it still wouldnt come off itself! cant say too much about fuel economy, close if not better than my 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix, but i have a little bit of a lead foot. over all i think this is maybe not the most stylish car, but it is a wonderful drivers car!

Pros: acceleration, braking, fit and finish, lots of interior room, fun to drive!

Cons: a bit of a rare car in my area, so parts can be a little tough to come by.

Amazing Car — This car is the best car i ever drove. even tho its 20 years old it still runs like new. when you accelerate fast its amazing the V-6 comes to life and you take off, but when it shifts it shifts hard. if your on a flat straight road punch the gas, the tires will spin through frst and cerp going to second and third. i can't say enough about it. its just a really amazing car.

Pros: FWD 3.0L V-6, amazing acceleration, great handaling, good on gas(if you can keep the pedal off the floor), smooth ride, quite, and starts up everytime

Cons: when the lifters get old you have to let the engine warm up befor you drive, other than that none
