Acura is alive and doing alright thanks to the RDX and MDX. Their sedans? Waiting on death’s door. In all likelihood there will be another TLX. But a full size Acura sedan seems untenable in today’s crossover hungry market. Honda bears some of the blame too, because the ILX, TLX, and RLX just aren’t that compelling. Acura could use a Legend. Remember when they had one?
Millenials have spent about twenty years coveting 90s Acura. The Integra obviously gets the lion’s share of attention and will probably skyrocket in value as more thirtysomethings get the funds to purchase the survivors. But the TL and Legend are also desirable to those who grew up around them.
Heck, Acura basically maintained their momentum well into the 2000s. The 2004-2008 TL was really something. And the TSX was cool too. Then the Beak Era arrived. But enough about that. This Legend did not hibernate for the winter and is apparently traveling around New York undeterred by road salt. Hopefully its owner gets it washed frequently. This is a car that should be preserved. And Acura needs to bring back actual names.
