My '01 Accord EX-L 5-Speed
By brad21ohio on
2001 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I purchased this vehicle with 101,000 miles on it for $7500. It is the EX 4cyl/manual transmission with leather package. It is a hard combo to find but well worth it. The car is loaded with safety and comfort features, the leather seats are VERY comfortable, the back seat is comfortable for two, and I love the audio controls on the steering wheel. I HIGHLY recommend the manual transmission with this car for several reasons. First, the automatic is well-know to be plagued by reliability issues, many people spend $3000+ replacing the transmission. The manual is trouble- free. Also, you can really squeeze the power out of this engine with the 5-speed, and the gas mileage is better.
Comfort, simple design of the interior is so easy to figure out, spacious interior, fuel economy, clean lines, good handling/comfort balance, huge trunk, decent stereo, wood trim, EXCELLENT visibility all the way around.
15 inch wheels are a little small for a car this size, 17s would look better and make the car handle better.
