2001 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
My vehicle had its transmission replaced at 53,000 miles (under the extended Honda warranty), it is now at 134,000 miles and is again in transmission failure.
The extended Honda warranty does not cover vehicles over 100,000 miles even if they replaced the transmission themselves.
Cost for a rebuild is $1800; $3500 for a new one.
The car is great!, but in my case the transmissions have averaged around 60k miles before failure.
2001 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Nice car. Good body shape -- doesn't look trendy, even after five years. In fact, prefer body shape to current model. Good quality materials. Highly reliable. Comfortable seats. Good driver control positions. Good engine -- the power of a 6 cylinder with the economy of a 4 cylinder. In general, better quality vs. my Lumina it replaced.
Nice body shape. Supportive seats. High quality materials and fit & finish. Good, comfortable car for long trips and commuting.
Engine could use more power. Better handling, more European feel.
2001 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
In the last 19 years I have owned 2 cars, a Honda civic and now a Honda Accord. Between the two of them I have replaced the tires and the exhaust on the Civic--that is it! For dependable, well made cars you can't go wrong. The size of the sedan is good. Good trunk size, good passenger size, nice feel, vision and little things like cup holder, glove box etc. Dash is easy to read, all controls are placed sensibly. I don't drive a lot but the car is comfortable and good on gas.
Just the overall comfort and sensible placement of all controls and accessories.
I'm sure the car has been redone. Hopefully they didn't change much as the setup and comfort, gas mileage and reliability are great.
