    This car is alot better the new bmws mercs and any new cars this car had alos the tech that I would love to have in modren car instead of shit toch screens and cheap materials that are made of plastics that break withen 4 years. And the quality if this legend is more like a 70k car then a car in today's time were you pay 70k you don't even get a key that has leather' car made cheap not even worth.

        This isn’t the exact car but my mom had and still has an Acura that has a old school phone in it I’m not sure which it is but it looks similar to this one and will all ways have a place in my heart one day I’ll fix it up

          No mention of the quirky longitudinal engine w front drive, or how the legend (sedan) inspired bmw 7 design? The 2nd gen legend was ahead of its time, and such an awesome car. I went from a ‘90 Sedan deVille to a ‘91 legend sedan, and the Acura was like something from another planet, it was so much better in every way (granted, I know that’s also due to GM totally phoning it in back then). Still, I was expecting a little more praise from Doug for this brilliant car!

            The Acura Logo looks like scholastic compass ! The reason that the current Acura cars in decline because their qualities are not in par with the Lexus cars.

              It hurts my heart that Honda stopped producing cars like the classic Legend :(

                    The legend is the #1 hood classic cars they are very very very hard to find I've personally owed 10 of them you should be happy that you even got the privilege to sit see and drive a coup you will never see one on a car lot or at a auction you gotta dig them up outta peoples backyards or get lucky and stumble upon them they are so rare 4 of mines been stolen before I wish Acura would bring them back but make them rwd or awd your score you gave is trash and this is because you don't know the iconic history of these cars we can tell you obviously were not in the loop and they are classic status of my generation and I'm 42 now

                          This car gives me a hard on!! Seriously, I would buy one in a heart beat if you could actually find one. This is when Acura was worth a damn and everyone wanted one! There is a reason it's called the Legend, because it IS one!! Common Acura, get back to your 90's roots and go back to real names again like what Lincoln did.....what Acura is now is disgusting.

                            Acura is sleeping on the Legend name. Acura stopped naming their cars names like Integra, Vigor, and Legend when they jumped on the simple nomenclature bandwagon and started naming their cars letters and numbers ala Mercedes Benz and BMW. If Acura came back with The Legend in 2020/21, it would be... How should I say, LEGEND (wait for it) ARY!

                                Acura is still cool the mdx is pretty fun for an suv and so is the new nsx even though it’s a lot more complex than the original

                                  This car was great then and even better today!!! The white was highly sought after as well. To compare this car against anything other than a luxury Coupe is a crime. Please review Hybrids because, no offense, you have no idea what you are talking about. This car's interior today is easily comparable to top trim mid level vehicles.

                                    You're half right about the acura A. It's actually modeled after a caliper\compass because they're tools for accurately drawing arcs, or measuring distances on a map.

                                                This car is so cool, it is just being a literal Legend, without even trying!!

                                                    It’s 1994. You want to install your 6 cd changer in the console of your new Legend. But. Oh no! You can’t! How unflattering

                                                      Had one of these in high school, really beat up but it was still sick. We fit probably 5 ppl in there and hotboxed the whole thing. That’s what those rear ash trays are for.

                                                        You know that little storage bin on the back deck is gonna have a broken latch lol! The soft-close doors still work just fine, little latch that hardly gets used didn't survive a year. I had a '92 coupe with the automatic that my dad handed down - not sure why you're doggin it cause this is the manual and mine chirped the wheels through the first 3 gears. Plenty of oomph for the day

When it turns red open that owners manual and it will tell you what you need done based on the miles. Neat little feature. My 92 honda accord as well as my 94 Legend had these.

When they changed the name to RL, acura was never the same and they could never duplicate another Legend! The name itself says it all!

Yet, ironically the Integra name remained.


                                                                                    Everything about the Legend, was 80s ambitiousness of Honda, which grew bigger with Gen 2 and peaked. A RWD V8 RL was proposed in 2001, but the transverse V6 AWD car won out and entered production 3 years later, as the KB1 (2005 RL). Very, very big mistake to date.

That grey or white color is beautiful! yes brother I feel the exact same way about Lexus, the new models with the predator grill😭Lol, but at least they are trying! LOL,

Though I have found one near me in white, type II, and automatic that I'll be looking at purchasing again, if all goes well. Wish it was manual, but I'll take what I can get at this point.

Acura almost seems like a lost cause at this point.

I wanted to stick with the acura brand because of there reliability and craftsmanship! Now I stand here today as a Lexus man🤣😭😂 Yes that coupe was so sexy, what color coupe did you have and was it the type 2 engine with a 6 speed transmission?

My RL was fine and all, but never enjoyed it as much as my previous legend coupe. I could care less about my old RL, but I still think about my coupe... a true legend.
