Best Car I have Ever Owned
By allen2h on
2001 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
Honda VTEC engine with manual
transmission = highly refined
drivetrain. Just put it in second
gear and rip it all the way up to
6,000 rpm. This is not abusing the
engine - this is giving this Honda
engine the exercise that it yearns for.
Very smooth manual shifter - I can
shift to any given gear at any time
with a precision that takes my breath
High quality interior materials -
nothing looks or is cheap. No
rattles, only one minor squeak from
the seat when I do hard cornering.
Plenty of storage bins.
Mileage: 1398 divided by 42.366 = 33.0
mpg when driving easy, 27 - 28 mpg
when driving hard.
Drawback: Hard cabin air filters
6 disc in dash cd changer; Ice cold
A/C; Extreemly reliable vehicle; Good
all around ergonomics; exacting fit
and finish interior; exacting body
Center console storage is really two
bins in one - and you can open the
lower bin while the upper bin is still
High beams switch is on the steering
wheel column - it belongs on the
floorboard; Brake light switch clicks
and can be felt when activating
brakes; excessive windshield and rear
view mirror wind noise; no telescopic
steering wheel; inaccurate fuel gauge;
onion skinned thin paint.
