ACURA LEGEND - Everything You Need to Know | Up to Speed

Thanks to Acura for sponsoring this episode!
The Acura Legend lived up to its name and proved that Acura knew how to build a great car. They challenged luxury brands like BMW and Mercedes, showing everyone that you don’t need to spend a ton, to get a ton. From turbos, all wheel drive, to crazy hybrid systems, the Acura Legend crossed the pond and became an actual Legend.

    I owned an Acura TL. First time I saw a straight 6 in a foreign car. It was a nice car for how old it was.

    Don’t you dare blame America for this. The taxes on American vehicles were 10 times what we put on foreign cars. Don’t start getting on Americas back just because they sponsor you. I’m highly disappointed, now I got to kick Nolan in the vagina

    It kills me how people want to knock the Genesis brand from Hyundai as a "cheap knockoff luxury brand", but they act like Acura from Honda, Infiniti from Nissan and Lexus from Toyota never went through the same ridicule of being considered "lowly Asian automakers" trying to go into the prestige luxury game against the Germans. The only advantage that the Japanese had is that they did it back in the 80s into the 90s, and now have some type of clout and reputation versus Hyundai who has started their luxury brand in 2015. But then again, look how amazing the Genesis cars are. 🤷

    Owned two acura legend coupes in my life. A 1991 and 1995... Drove both to 200k+. Both did need headgasket replacement at a certain point of their lives. Otherwise very reliable car. Best grand tourer in my opinion. I now own an Audi S5 v8. The check engine lights drive me crazy.
