MikeD... Thanks...

Does your report mean that the VIN off of the Legend GS is okay. The only reason why I ask is, I have seen other carfax reports with more information.

sorry, I didn´t knew it. Yes, now, I know, what you mean. But, what you guys have in USA, is a really fine support about CARFAX, which doesn´t exists in Germany. A quite excellent combination !!!

Trouble Spots
Check for these possible problems when test-driving and inspecting this vehicle.

Steering problems: Steering may be difficult during parking maneuvers due to a problem with the vehicle speed sensor in the power steering unit. (1991-94)
Steering problems: The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) tends to fail but a repair kit has been released so that the whole power steering assembly need not be replaced. (1991-94)
Steering noise: Telescopic steering columns may groan when the wheel is turned because there is not enough lubrication on the column.
Security alarm: The security alarm may not deactivate with the key in the driver's door, which sets off the alarm. Turning the key again may disarm it.
Poor transmission shift: Debris collects on the screen in the engine's air intake causing poor acceleration (all models) or lack of upshift (automatic transmission) at full throttle. (1991-94)
Engine noise: Carbon buildup on the piston rings may cause piston slap. The fix is to clean the carbon using GM Top Engine Cleaner sucked in by way of a vacuum port on the throttle body.
Cruise control: The cruise control may not engage on 1994 models due to a faulty actuator.

BuLLdAwG'91cpe... Thanks...

I found this 95 Legend GS on Autotrader an according to the dealer it has 36,378 miles on it and they are asking $16,900.00

I am trying to convince my wife that this would be a good car for her.

I will call them to see if it is still available.
