    Anyone Know anything about Acura Legends?

    I have a friend that wants to sell me a '94 Legend. As far as I know, its a V6, auto, outside is like brand new but the inside needs touching up. I looked at the cunsumer guide on the computer and they seem to have some trouble but most cars always have trouble. I dont know much about a Legend. Can anyone help me out. I planning to get the car Monday morning.

    What would you like to know?

    Ive never owned one or known anyone who did, but id guess theyre just like most other early-mid 90s Honda Product. Good on gas, reliable(for the most part). Its a v6 and i imagine it comes with leather and a few other plush goodies. So..cant go wrong there.

    How much is he asking for it?
    Whats the mileage like?
    Did he take care of it?

      They are prone to headgasket failure so if your bud isn't sure when it was done, just make sure you replace it with a quality aftermarket replacement like fel-pro. My brother learned the hard way--he had to replace his twice within like 10 months and he's an ase certified mechanic. He sold the car after that.

      This is one of those times when I wouldn't recommend oem

        They are the mercedes benz of honda if you take care of them... Leather, sunroof, hell the rare 3.2vs type 2 that came with a 6 speed. The legend is the bigger sister to the Acura CL , TL, and RL

          According to what I know, he's asking 2000 but willing to go low as 1500. I was told it has about 130k to 140k on it. I was looking what the most common cause on those cars were and the head gasket seems to be on of them. That what I'm probably going to be getting once I get the car. Pretty much I'll be doing the tune up the day I get it.

            Had several of them. Only known issue is the head gasket. Get it done, and you're golden...

                  You can usually verify the headgasket issue by driving it for awhile. If the gaskets aren't bad, there is no reason to replace them. Some cars had issues, and some did not. From what I have seen, it appears the ones that had a lack of cooling system flushes were the ones that had the most trouble.

                  Drive it for at least 30-45minutes and see if it starts to get warmer than normal. If not, it is OK. Changing the head gaskets isn't easy on those, so why do it if it doesn't need it?

                  Great car BTW. I am considering one myself.

                      I've got a 91 legend. Running perfect. No headgasket issue, but i do hear its a problem. Never had a cooling issue either, another common problem. My trans mount was dead lots of vibrations, replaced it and now the car runs like a dream. Nice "executive" type of car.

                      Sold, but not forgotten.

                        i've got a repair manual in PDF for the '91 Legend if you need it. i found a website that had manuals so i just started downloading everything.

                        hmm i think it's one of those factory ones too.

                              Yeah I was looking at his car last night. I happened to stumble upon that site by googling Legend. I just wanted to know everything about an Acura Legend like when I first got my CB7. I wanted to know everything that can know about a CB.
