Acura Legend, Sedan
#436 of 812 daughters and Legends
Jun 17, 2003 (7:00 am)
I bought my daughter a 1991 Legend Sedan as a college car 3 years ago. 105,000 miles on it then and 150,000 now. We have had to have a head gasket job done and radiator replaced.
Speed sensor has gone out on the transmission twice.
Acura dealer service is good and expensive.
This is a substantial and powerful car, and seems to have served us well. The leather interior is starting to come apart.
Very similar to our '99 Intrepid ES. In fact, it looks like Chrysler looked hard at those Legends when they were designing the Intrepid and Concorde. The Dodge is a quieter and smoother car, however. But it is 8 years newer.
#437 of 812 Transmission is something that you should not worry about

Mine shufts abruptly too. All of them do. That is why the 1990 Legend is faster than the current one. 0-60 in oh say 6.9. Reason was to say we are as fast as the Lexus LS with a V6. Has 220,000 miles on it and was running very well, but got rear ended by some jackass who did a hit and run. I don't think it is worth a full repair job. Maybe a small one at $800 and sell it for $2500 and save the insurance.

Pretty safe car overall and especiall good since it is the only car that year that had 2 airbags. Structure is overall strong. If your daughter is not a speed demon then getting a fast and agile car such as this is a very good thought. If she is I am sorry to say get her a 1996 Civic or something. Sedan had 200hp but was pretty fast overall. The 230hp one is no joke about as fast as a 2002 Q45. Sound strange? Thank that transmission.

Why are you replacing the engine? Is there something wrong with the one in the car? I wouldn't change it unless there is a real problem. Miles on these modern cars are amazing. It may last you another 150,000 if it has been taken care of.
Acura parts are expensive, so be careful. But these are wonderful cars.
#441 of 812 computer location help

Where is the engine computer located in a 1991 Legend Sedan? The dealer says ours is bad, and wants $1100 to replace it. I can buy one for $189. I figure I can replace it myself.

#443 of 812 Bose amp recall

We received a recall notice for our '91 sedan about 2 years ago. If you didn't best to check with your local dealer. I'm sure they can tell you rather quickly whether you need to have yours done.

Hey everyone...I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have the opportunity of buying a 1991 Legend coupe. I love this car already. I am in college and need a reliable but inexpensive car. The only thing is that the car has 250,000 miles on it. THe original owner's son is saleing it. What do you guys think? Is $4000 an okay price? The only thing he has mentioned so far is an occasional oil leak. I test drive it this week.
Thanks so much
