What is the most common mechanical problem with this car?

Asked by Oct 11, 2013 at 03:44 PM about the 1990 Acura Legend

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just picked up a 1990, one owner legend with 81,000 miles. Should I change the timing belt now, or do I have some milage time left. Also, in your opinion, what surprises, mechanical issues are common on this car? What wears out the quickest and what should I be looking for? Thanks for the help.
