Probably Best Looking accord, but otherwise mediocre.

2001 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I'm not going to talk about reliability, because that is assumed, demanded
and granted for this brand of car. A/C motor is weak, My kid's R/C car has more power!!!
Battery cables suck, they corrode like nobodys business, even if you put those inexpensive greasy, fuzzy red and green washers on the terminals. Front seats give you back pain, butt pain, and are incahoots with an unforgiving suspension.
Seats on my 5th gen. '96 EX
accord were much better.
I have no idea what all these other reviewers are yapping about, but fuel economy is DEPLORABLE!!! Dealer replaced the transmission under warranty, but you wouldn't even expect Hondas' design team to screw it up! Just knocking on wood now!
Nimble, that's it.
Scrap the accord name, the newer ones are even less appealing than ones of yore. fourth and fifth generations were reportedly the best Accords made.
