An All-time Favorite! — One of the best style's Acura came out with in the early 90's...And with one of the best 3.2 liter V6's in Japanese history. Amazing driver controls and sound system with just enough curb appeal. This Coupe was the inspiration for the later 3.2CL models!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Heavy and stuck to the roads in the suburbs

Cons: N/A

Under Rated Executive — Amazing car, way ahead of it's time in terms of handling, smoothness and quality. Introduced to compete with the Lexus LS 400 and it shows in the quality of the fixtures and fitings. This car is 21 years old, has done 177,000 miles and is tight and rattle free. The fact that it was dealer serviced up to 160,000 probably helps, but everything, and I mean everything works just like new....

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Feeling of build quality, great handling, amazing engine, good fuel economy for size

Cons: Size, if anything. Same size as BMW 728i but no parking sensors, but that's nit picking.. Amazing car

The Ac That M A D E You Sit Back — F A S T..... Like a Streamlined Butterfly. It was no 10 sec car; but it was very surprising for a front wheel drive 4 door. This car was fun to drive especially in snowy conditions and it also turned heads while cruising the strip at the beach!

Pros: Interesting motor mount design on a front wheel drive. It was like a FWD that wanted to be a RWD SOOOOOOOO badly!

Cons: High test fuel ONLY. Not very economical under heavy commuter conditions...

They Just Don't Make Them This Good And Fun To Drive Anymore — Performance: Fast little car with a big Honda engine Build Quality: Great build quality, I wish the leather seats would of lasted longer, most Acura seats break down quick Apperance: It's a good looking car all the way around you look at it. It looks even sexier with the spoiler and the new wheels Cost of Ownership: Expensive to maintain, so far replaced Engine, Radiator, Brakes, bunch of hoses. Only 144K miles on the new engine Fun Factor: Fun car to drive, I drive at least 100 miles a day from work and cruising around town

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Small fast and yet fun to drive car

Cons: Expensive car to maintain, but thats to be expected with an old car

Smart, Sexy And Fast!...truly Legendary — Where do I start? This car was 10 years ahead of its time. The technology that sits under the hood is something that is common place in today's automobiles, but was state of the art in 1991. With a $30,000+ price tag brand new, the performance that this car exhibits is no laughing matter. The first gear acceleration from a dead stop is typical of what you'd expect from an import product, but when this V6 hits second gear with the pedal pinned to the ground, you better hold on tight!!! The torque steer is quite intense while you're thrust into the seat hanging on for dear life as the RMP's rev, the tires let out a fierce chirp and you pull away from all unsuspecting vehicles around you. A sleeper?...that's putting it mildly. I had no idea the Acura Legend was such a firecracker. Stopping power is only satisfactory from the all around disc brakes. This car could definitely benefit from larger brakes. Handling is great. Because of its low stance, this car corners like a bastard. I quite enjoy out-cornering most modern cars when I'm out driving my Legend. It's funny to watch other cars trying to keep up with me. The build quality of this car is definitely up there with the finest cars that automotive manufacturers have to offer. After 235,000 kilometers, this car still runs strong and has a reasonably tight suspension. The only major repair that had to be done to this car was the head gaskets when I bought it...apparently a common issue with these cars at around the 200,000 km mark. Like a lot of the early 90's Honda products, this car never seems to die. It takes the abuse I throw at it everyday as my daily driver and continues to perform well beyond what I need it to do. I cannot believe I haven't gotten a speeding ticket in this car yet!!! (I should quite while I'm ahead) Styling wise, I love how aggressive the front end looks. It looks like it's going a million miles an hour standing still. The rear end, however always left something to be desired in my opinion. I much prefer the softer curves of the four door sedan Legend's rear end. Inside the dash and center console is classy with a little touch of faux woodgrain, but not too much to make you think you're driving an "old person's" Mercedes! Fully loaded with leather interior, heated seats and climate control, this is very much a young and successful person's car. You feel great driving it because it has great looks and lot of power. Fuel economy is great for 6 cylinder. I only got 50 kilometers more to a tank on average with my old Honda Accord 4 banger. Maintenance?...other than regular oil changes and giving the car a wash and vacuum every now and then, I rarely have to lift a finger to keep this car going strong. I've owned four other cars before this one and the Legend is by far the most enjoyable car I've ever driven. It's quick, stylish and user friendly. You'd be hard pressed to ever get me to give this car up. I absolutely love it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of pep, aggressive styling, luxurious yet sporty

Cons: No cup holders!

I Love It And Wish I Still Had It. — I love it b/c it was a V-6. But it had something major with the engine where it had poor acceleration and it over heated a bit. But when it got going it was like a freight train.

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

Pros: It's fast and gorgeous.

Cons: Can find one.

Great If Taken Care Of — Great car but had a continuing problem with the cylinder heads leaking, which cost a fortune to repair. Great performance and a nice interior that was somewhat tarnished by the obligitory use of premium fuel and low gas mileage. But they are very nice if you can get it in good condition

Pros: Fun to drive, nice sheetmetal, attractive interior

Cons: high maintenance cost, low gas mileage

91 Legend Coupe Type Ii Engine — Great performance for a 17 year old car, styling is timeless, which is really why i bought the car. Build quality is exceptional, reliability second to none. Type II engine makes it fast. Wish it had digital climate control, woodgrain, heated seats, but it'll do until I can afford a M3.

Pros: Fast, handles well for a front wheel drive, timeless design, reliability

Cons: front wheel drive
