For A Daily Driver It's Good. Cheaper For You If You Do The Work On The Car If You Can. — Have had mine for 1.5 now. Bought it for a cheap $1100 and had to get A/C compressor and convert to R134. Later had to replace fan module but overheated twice. Had a lifter noise after it overheated but some Engine Restore at every oil change eliminates the noise. It is an old car so it is what it is until someone makes it better. Slowly adding upgrades as things get time to swap change out. It is my daily driver with 160,000 miles and is very strong, quick, durable, regardless of the issues I had when I first got it. Overall, it has been a good tuff car with just regular maintenance and fuel. Just drive it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: V6 is strong, all the option in the world, durable

Cons: Not really a tall guys car but you can get the seat way back there.

Over All A Great Car — not a bad over all car, with few and finer mods to this vehicle it has the potential to dessamate all off the line and in the long run, but be prepaired to have some money to drop in there

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: custom S4 gears

Cons: week trans

Great Little Weekend Driver. To Old To Be A Daily Driver — For a small car it accelerates pretty quickly. Was Car&Drive car of the year back in 1989. People think its a much younger car all the time. Still rock solid after 20 years. A little bit more expensive since it was the second year of Acura was in existance and parts are harder to find. Can cruise at 100mph with no problem. Gas mileage is ok, highway suck cause no overdrive (17/23). Fun to drive and looks good. Mines a 2 door black on black which i researched is extremely rare for this model.

Pros: Great handling, Great design, rare

Cons: Gas mileage, expenisve repairs.

My 89 Legend — well this is my legend in the pic except mine is black with window tint all around and a 5 speed manual. and its a good car but theres just alot of work to do to mine it needs new paint, seats, stereo system, steering parts, starter, and rear side windows, ill prolly end up spending 3,000 in it b4 its all said and done but when its done it'll be a show car.

Pros: very easy to customize

Cons: not easy to find custom parts for

Loved My Other Legend So Much, Thought I'd Buy Another And Have Two — This Legend could not compare with my Gold 88 Legend. It looked great and was a LS model (compared to my Gold L model) but it burned oil and I had to continuously top it off. Nice black leather interior. The electronic information center was great (that's how I knew I had to add oil) Sold in 2003.

Pros: Great looking!

Cons: Burning a lot of oil.
