I suggest you look up the Edmunds TMV (follow the links from the blue Used Car tab at the top) and maybe also post the details of each vehicle in our Real-World Trade-In Values.
If you decide to post in that discussion, be sure to read the posting guidelines in red above the post box so that you provide all the necessary information.
Let us know how it goes.

Trunk Release solution.
My 1993 Legend L had the same symptom --- the solution was in reconnecting the string teather to the release cylinder, both are located behind the glove box and can be reached (with some difficulty) after removing glove box.
Be careful: work avoiding airbag circuitry if it is exposed when you remove the glovebox.

I'm restoring the interior in a 94 4dr Legend SRS. My carpet supplier (Auto Custom Carpets) cannot match the color by the color code(Type F). Can anybody tell me where i can find a description of the color codes, other than a dealer, thats usually my last resort! Thanks!
#508 of 812 Where there's smoke
Apr 12, 2005 (12:21 pm)
I own an 91 Acura L, 3.2L coupe. I had a mechanic look at the car because the engine was idling while in park. The oil and coolant also has a slow leak. He told me it's because of the radiator which I plan on replacing. Now the car has started smoking...not overheating..but smoking. Any ideas? Is it pricey to fix?

I got a brand new OEM radiator for my 1991 Legend LS for about $100 from Radiators.com
Excellent service; they drop shipped it right to my mechanic at his shop. Perfect fit, no complaints after 18 months.
As to the leaks, where precisely is it leaking from?

I think it was the Legends.....they used a plastic filler neck on the top of the radiator or something like that and they routinely cracked and leaked after a time. Replacing the radiator and switching to metal or a different model radiator at least solved the problem.
Not sure I fully undstand the "idling in park" problem. Do you mean it idles after you turn the car off or it idles high or what?
Oil leaks should not be all that hard to track down and for the coolant there are also only so many places that it can be leaking from. You can always get a second opinion if you aren't fully confident in your mechanic's diagnosis.
#511 of 812 Overheating "HELP"
Apr 28, 2005 (8:05 am)
My car is a 95 Legend 180,000 miles it started running hot, so we replaced the water pump, timing belt, all relays and sensors. new spark plugs and wires, radiator cap, checked all hoses, and had it checked to see if the head gasket had blown and was told no 2 times.
Still over heats and is going thru anti-freeze???????????
What do I do next?
The front cooling fans don't come on when it's hot or if they do they don't stay on?
Apr 28, 2005 (8:09 am)
It probably needs a new radiator.. See messages above.. Typical failure for a Legend..

I was glad I found this forum. Hope to get some help from you guys.
I am considering buying a 93 Legend automatic with 147000miles for about $2500. Is it a reasonable price for this car, generally speaking?
I am mostly interested knowing from you guys if I should have any reasons to doubt the engine condition or the transmission. From what you might know, is the 93 Legend prone to such problems (burning engine oil etc)?
Thanks a lot. I would appreciate any reply.

Welcome! While you are waiting for some input, you might be interested in looking back through the previous posts here. You might also hop over to the Real-World Trade-In Values discussion and ask Terry, a very helpful dealer, what he thinks. Be sure to read the posting guidelines (in red) so you can give him all the info he'll need to tell you what it's worth.
Good luck - let us know how you progress.
