The 1989 Acura Legends are very well-built and the quality is outstanding. Acura did not cut corners when designing and building the Legend. The quality of these vehicles is beyond compare. They also drive so well and are quiet and smooth. If you have never had an Acura Legend, you have missed out on having a great car. If you are lucky enough to find someone willing to part with theirs, it is definitly a great car to buy.

Found and purchased my 1989 Acura Legend in Feb 2014 through a family member. Only 13k original miles. It was owned by an older couple, and after they passed sat in their garage unmoved for 4 years. Trailered it home, drained the gas, new H2o pump, timing, ac, alternator and p/s belts, fuel filter, replaced clogged brake lines, new tires and fluids, and now it's a new car. This Legend rides and handles like a dream. Honda engineers did a beautiful job on this vehicle. Acura dealer employees said they hadn't seen anything like it in years, called it a "time capsule." Most impressive is the attention to detail in the engine, where all parts are of highest quality and assembled intelligently. The ride is smooth and quiet, the leather interior is luxurious yet practical, gauges are well displayed, and the car gives me an overall feeling of confidence when driving. Plenty of power, great stopping with the 4w disc brakes and ABS, Independent double-wishbone suspension is well tuned and handles beautifully. They got it right with this one! It's great to see so many positive reviews of these cars with 100k-300k+ miles. With only 14k miles now, we're just getting started, but it's easy to see that this car and our family are going to have a very long and happy future together. Solidly built, fun to drive, reliable and comfortable...we love our '89 Acura Legend!

The Most Reliable Luxury Car Ever Built

I bought the 1989 Acura Legend brand new 28 years ago. It had very little mechanical problems and still runs like new. I drive all over the Bay Area working at different events and I know that this car will always get me home safely. I had been rear-ended several times by different brands of vehicles and nonetheless my Acura sustained the impact with only minor scratches compare to the other vehicles with their front end caved in. It's a dream driving a luxury car that gets great mileage! Thank you Honda!!!

I have owned a 1989 Acura Legend for 1 year now, What I can can say about this car is that it is an outstanding piece of machinery. The odometer was broken when I bought the car and the odometer is at 230,600 miles and it may have stopped working years ago for all I know so the car may have over 300 to 400,000 miles on it. I never had a problem out of it until I hit a deer str8t on at 50 miles an hour and crushed the radiator and hood pretty bad, anyway I replaced the radiator myself and the car is still running fine to this day and it only cost me $189 dollars to fix it..I cant believe it still runs after all its been through..AMAZING CAR!!!!
