Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Honda Legend saloon?
Honda regularly tops What Car?'s reliability surveys, which should provide peace of mind to Legend buyers. A cherished high-miler can be a bargain, but only buy a car that has been serviced exactly on schedule.
However, when things do go wrong, they can be costly to fix, as average repair costs are on the pricey side. For instance, automatic gearboxes can fail and are expensive to replace - sometimes costing as much as the car is worth. Suspension faults have been reported and these too can be costly to put right, while warped brake discs are also common.
Check that recall work has been carried out - Legends built between January 2000 and March 2002 were recalled due to concerns with the brake-light switch.
