Not really. Ali as per usual is comparing cars he would buy or has already owned against cars that he isn't in the market for. He's also by admission never driven one yet has raved in the past how he'd love to see the Legends drivetrain in the Accord. So what would the difference be there then? At the end of the day others have noted this about Ali sometimes, in that if he doesn't like something it automatically means its rubbish. It's different cars for different people & Ali seems to always forget that.
Put it this way my Dad is more than happy with his Legend. It's fast enough to see off most day to day cars, comfy enough to do long trips in and not feel like you've had your back put through a mangle, and handles well enough to put a lot of so called nimbler cars to shame. The fact you don't like it Ali is absolutely and utterly irrelevant mate.
Ahem. You've just proved my point about it being an old man'd luxo barge Stu. Thanks
Oh, and you said it would make a second hand bargain. Who for? Can't think of anyone on this forum that;ll be paying attention to that advice. Who's being out of context here, exactly?
Might I also remind you, as your being post blind again:
So why you posted:

I'm not entirely sure. I said the Legend has far too many gadgets, and it has. I said the RX8, as an example, is simple, hence why I like it, which it is. You went off the rails because your dad has Legend and you can't possibly see it being anything other than the bestestest-everest-saloon-in-the-whole-entire-world and-don't-you-dare-say-it's-not-because-my-dad-has-one..... Jesus, Stu. The press have slagged the Legend off from the start as being anodyne overweight and dull. Take a reality pill. Honda made a boring car. Honda make LOTS of boring cars. In fact, Honda now make mainly boring cars. My mum has an IS250. It's dull. Seriously dull. Would I leap to defend it because my mum has one? Nope, it's dull. Would I recommend it as a second hand bargain on an enthusiast's forum? Nope, it's dull.
As for the article, the correct response Mr. Honda, was: "Yes, we're going to stop making the Legend because, you know, we don't actually think anyone would notice if we did. Hell, we'd have to paint it pink and put a 20 foot dildo on the roof before anyone would even notice one on the road. We'll now stop being pretend tree hugging hypocrits and actually build the kind of engineering led, fun cars we became famous for making because, if we don't rediscover some kind of corporate identity, the Koreans and Chinese are going to sh-t on us from a great height in the next 10 years."
