Honda has officel confirmed end Octorber 2010 that they will stop selling the Legend in Europe by end 2010. Today Honda Germany stoped taking orders for the Legend... the Legend was a big disaster for Honda in Europe... in 2009 Honda sold 21 Legend in Germany (most likely to Honda employees)



main reason... europens like to have a wide range of engine and transmission options... Honda took care of that by offering one engine

Why is it such a flop? And only TWENTY ONE sold in Germany for all of 2009? 


I have yet to encounter a late model honda that wasnt a quality vehicle or uninteresting.

I'm guessing it costs the same or about the same as there German Counterparts?

Just a guess.

i have some pics of germany and surrounding areas at my parent`s place i should upload.. when you see the streets you`ll understand the flop... i think the only jap car they like there is mitsu... and the colt at that.... there`s next to zero gm (non euro counterpart) cars as well.  it`s mostly vw, audi, bmw, merc, and repeat lol.

Wow i thought they stopped selling the legend world wide in the 90's. The only ones i have seen were a couple of 92's and and an 89 model. Its news to me you could buy them anywhere out side of Japan still

Just a guess.

The price was 58,000Euro at the end incl. 19% VAT but fully loaded... a similar Audi A6 3.2 quattro base price was much cheaper but much less equipped brought to same standart the price was nearly identical but gave the customer the options to choose what ever he liked from unlimited colors inside and out, different seats in leather or alcantara or a combination etc., different suspensions, wheels, hifi equipment etc..

From 1988 till today Honda sold 3500 Legend in Germany... twice that number Audi sells the A6.... each month

I don't think the RL did all that fantastically here either.  I think it was just that it didn't have enough qualities to stand out to people against similarly priced cars by other brands.
