2001 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have had the Honda Accord 3.0 L V6 sedan for 9 years and I drive it only to work with a mileage of 90,000. The transmission failed but otherwise it looks like brand new with regular maintenance. Fixing the transmission costs $4,100 at the dealer's and after 7 years is no longer covered by warranty. I though that I bought a reliable car that will drive up to 150,000 miles but not so! I will never ever buy Honda again.

2001 Honda Accord LX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The car had some problems with the air bag sensor which required to be replaced by the dealership [under warranty]. With a few upgrades, new shocks and struts + some after market 18 inch alloy rims and handling has greatly improved. [~$2500 for entire package]. With a few interior upgrades such a new MP3 compatible stereo and GPS, completes the picture.


Best Features

The handling and acceleration. The gas mileage ~28 mpg. A few strangers over the last few years have asked if I was planning to sell it. Unfortunately, I am not planning to sell my car anytime soon.


Worst Features

a better higher performance exhaust system. Easier replacement access to the headlights and the battery.

2001 Honda Accord Value Package 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This was my first Honda and my last. The transmission is shot and come to find out, this is a known issue for Honda. However. And beware. They will not assist in repairing the transmission if you are one day or one mile over the warranty. They knew the transmission was faulty and still used it for several years. The issue is not that a manufacturer has a defective product, but rather, that the manufacturer knowingly sold a product that had the distinct potential of failing and will not back up their product. I don't care how many great reviews Honda gets or has gotten. They have proved to me to be an unreliable company with which to deal. Stay away from all Honda!


Best Features

none


Worst Features

Honda needs to back up their product 100%

2001 Honda Accord LX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car in August 2004. It had 30,000 miles. Since owned it has been a great vehicle. Very comfortable on long trips. Very roomy inside. Nice big trunk for grocery shopping. Overall couldn't be happier to own such a strong and dependable car. Get one and you will be very pleased on how well this vehicle drives. It now has 146,000 and never any problems.


Best Features

comfort, peppy engine, tranny, and good gas millage considering it has a v6 getting 28 city/ 35 mpg highway


Worst Features

not a thing.

2001 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Just the overall comfort and sensible placement of all controls and accessories.


Worst Features

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.
