Acura Legend, Sedan
Nov 17, 2005 (10:49 am)
If you're in the market for a Legend Coupe and you a performance enthusiast get a 1993 or newer, this is when Acura came out with the TypeII motor along with the 6spd transmission pushing the horsepower on the 6spd to about 235 w/about 210lb ft of torque. 0-60 runs about 6.3 seconds and 1/4 mile in about 14.8 with TCS off. It's not super fast but remember it's a big heavy touring coupe that'll push 160mph, 155mph is what it's rated at from the factory then the fuel cut off kicks in.
Mechanically I haven't heard anything being a common problem for the Legend. There has been a few electrical issues. By the way, mine is for sale...black on black LS 6spd Type II, runs awesome, custome paint, ground effects and performance suspension etc.

Delray Acura has a 1992 Legend Sedan with 52000 miles up for auction on eBay, and for sale at the dealership. I drove it today, it's nice! It's one owner, bought 13 years ago, maintained at the dealer, just traded in. I think it's as nice a '92 Legend LS sedan as you're likely to run in to. They're asking 8,900 on the price tag, but the eBay reserve is lower... somewhere. Via edmunds.com and eBay completed items searches, it looks like $5500-6000 would be what similar cars would go for... but I can see how a one-owner, service records available example could command a premium. What would you say a fair price for such an example would be?
Oh, and if you're in the market, I call dibs!

While you wait for some input here, check the Edmunds Used Car Appraiser.
You might also try asking Terry (rroyce10) in our Real-World Trade-In Values discussion. Be sure to include all the necessary information that is listed above the post box.

As things turned out, someone else just won the eBay auction at $7150, about $1500 more than the Edmunds Used Car Appraiser (92 LS, 52K, Excellend cond, dealer retail) suggested would be reasonable, and $100 more than I'd bid before the auction ended. I'm split between bummed at losing the auction and glad that I didn't have to pay the premium. So I guess that's ok for today.
I asked the question here specifically because it looked to me like the Edmunds price was low, and I wanted a second opinion. Based on this one data point it looks like dealers can get premium pricing on really good examples.

Wow, too bad you didn't get it. Good luck finding another one.
Sounds like the market answered your question, though ... even though it wasn't what you wanted to hear.

don't mean to sound like a hater but i find it hard to believe. i'm reffering to the fact that you say 1/4 mile time for type II 6-speed is 14.8. the book says 15.7 for 93 coupe type II. that is 1 sec difference which is a lifetime on a track. is that even possible?

I love the style of the Legend and I am considering buying a 91 Legend LS sedan for $5,000 with 72,000 miles, or a 94 Legend LS sedan with 65,000 $7,000.....Does anyone know about the differences between these two model years...things to check on, repairs?, engine problems or suspension changes?, etc....I have done a bit of homework on Edmunds and other sites, and the price seems fair....I was just trying to find a real person who has had some experience with either or both...Thanks!!
