Maybe this is just me, but the low end torque output on a Legend is not sufficient enough to have a long 3rd gear(5pd). I personally like my first three gears to be lightning fast. It seems third is a shade tall for my liking, anyone else agree?
Apparently Honda was taking aim at German autos such as BMW and Mercedes. German automobiles have been notorious for have nice first and second gears tall third gears and genrally well spaced 4, 5 and sometimes 6th gears. so if it seema little long thats all it is. I dont know why maybe to give you more range when merging on the autobahn, hmmph go figure.
