Hi everyone, I've just become a Legend owner so I thought I'd say hello and share my initial thoughts about it. It was registered December 07 with just short of 35K on the clock, graphite pearl, black interior. Very beautiful looking car. I had a good, long test drive, and this dealership was literally right next to a dual carriage way and then motorway. I found it was amazingly nice to drive on such roads and I fell for it very quickly. When I picked it up there wasn't much fuel left, so the first thing I did was fill up with regular unleaded because that's what I've always used. Immediately I noticed reduced performance and metallic knocking sounds coming from the engine. I didn't realise that Legends are required to have Super Unleaded, so as soon as this tank is done, which won't take long by the looks of things, I will fill up with super and see if that makes an improvement. I certainly didn't notice any knocking during the test drive. The journey home was wonderful, you really could cruise all day on the motorway, it was only when I got back to my normal, familiar roads that I began to notice how firm the ride is. It really is a hard ride, and considering that my Legend will spend most of it's life on these poorly surfaced back roads, I'm starting to think I've made a terrible mistake! The reason I parted with my old car was because I felt it was too hard and sporty for my liking, but I've realised now that it was a magic carpet ride compared to the Legend. The Legend also suffers from a lot of rattles which has disappointed me as I expected build quality to be much better. Again, on nice smooth roads you don't notice, but on lumpy, rough B roads my progress is accompanied by a symphony of rattles from the area of the passenger side dash, both front door pillars and the rear window blind. I've found that the rear blind doesn't rattle if it is up, only when it's retracted, so I guess I'll just have to keep it extended all the time. I will prod and poke about to see if I can find the source of the rattles because that's one thing I can't stand, and it is a shame because the car is so refined in all other respects. It is an awesome car without a doubt, but I'm not sure that I'm going to get on with it long term. If only I could have test driven it around my usual routs I would have known it wasn't going to be suitable. I'll see how it goes, it's only been a few days and I guess I need to bond with it a bit more. I'd be interested to know if anyone else has a rattly Legend or is it just mine? I'm thinking now that the fact it's had 4 owners already should have told me something!! Regards James.
