2001 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I picked the Honda Accord for reliability and safety. The 2001 Accord offers good, but not great mileage. The ride is reasonably smooth and the EX offers 6-CD changer, certainly a plus. Handling on the vehicle is acceptable, but a bit of a dissapointment. Stopping distances seem a little long to me, especially if the anti-locks kick in. Turning isn't as smooth as I'd like either. The exterior, as with Hondas offers no excitment, but one cannot complain about top safety ratings and few-- in fact no mechanical problems at 65000 miles.


Best Features

CD changer with cassette, cruise, power windows, doors, nice interior trim, adjustable seat height


Worst Features

I would think Honda could do better with the handling. They probably have since 2001. I rented a Cadillac Deville. No contest, Caddy wins by a mile.

2001 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The Accord is the perfect all-around sedan for those who cannot afford a BMW (or those smart enough not to invest their hard earned money into rapidly depreciating assets at luxury prices). The Accord is sporty enough with a peppy engine and taut suspension to be really fun to zip around in. The car comfortably fits our family of four and has been a great stop-and-go hauler around town as well as a great highway touring sedan. Mechanically the car has been flawless. We have only had to replace a battery, oil and filters. The biggest drawback has been the length and turning radius making it sometimes difficult to park


Best Features

Fun to drive. Black paint with dark tinted windows (optional) looks great. Back-end of '01 Accords look much better than the "improved" look of the current Accords.


Worst Features

More powerful A/C.

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


Review

I LOVE my car! V6 is v. smooth/ great pick up. Had it over 4years & have replaced a faulty dashlight & recently the altenator. B/c I do all service w/my dealer I was given "goodwill credit" & paid only for labor/they pd. for the part. I saved over $200.00! I WILL buy another honda. No troubles in the NH winter, love the climate control. Acceleration is v. smooth, dash layout is v. ergonomic. I recommend this car to anyone looking for reliability, safety & an all around great car.


Best Features

power seats, sunroof, steering wheel audio controls, trunk space/6 disc indash cd player/how comfortable the car is to drive/storage bins- everything!!


Worst Features

heated seats, better quality leather, mine is wearing on drivers' side where you "slide" into the seat. maybe tigher suspension for a more "sporty" drive/16 inch rims vs. 15.

2001 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought a Honda due to excellent ratings and their reliability that you hear so much about. Had two expensive repairs. Had to have the tranmission replaced with low mileage. Honda covered and extended warranty to 100k. Also had a rear main seal that needed repaired with around 50k mileage. Honda refused to admit is was faulty design/workmanship even though all independent sources indicated otherwise. On the 2001 LX model, don't believe the hype that this car is the most reliable out there.


Best Features

Large trunk, gets very good gas mileage in highway driving. Can get 34 range with favorable conditions.


Worst Features

Lights for climate control selection are hard to see in daylight.

2001 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have owned 2 previous models and this one by far is my favorite. It is a very nicely equipped car. Anyone wanting to buy one should not worry about getting a bad one because they all are a great vehicle.


Best Features

My favorite is the 6 disc cd changer in the dash and the powered drivers seat.


Worst Features

None except maybe a little more leg room.
