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


Review

Mine is a 4 cyl/ automatic transmission.
Had to replace the brake system power
booster 2 wks after purchase (almost
rear ended another vehicle). Now the car
has developed a chugging noise in the
front end and nobody is able to
troubleshoot it. Sheet metal is paper
thin, paint chips very easily. The
engine has enough power, but you really
have to punch the gas. LOTS of tire and
wind noise and whinny transmission.
Overall, a slightly less than average
ownership experience and definitely not
what I expected from a manufacturer with
such reputation for quality and reliability.


Best Features

tight turning circle agile for a medium sized car spacious interior decent mileage with 87 octane gas


Worst Features

Not as reliable as they say. Craftmanship is ok, but car is just too fragile to sustain initial quality level over time.

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


Review

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
away.

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
replacement.


Best Features

6 disc in dash cd changer; Ice cold A/C; Extreemly reliable vehicle; Good all around ergonomics; exacting fit and finish interior; exacting body gaps exterior. Center console storage is really two bins in one - and you can open the lower bin while the upper bin is still closed.


Worst Features

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.

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


Review

Bought in for 3 years and I never
experience a single break-down. The
only things I spent are the scheduled
maintainences, oil changes, and that's
all!
However, do not expect it to be
too 'sporty' because of the soft
suspension setting that aims for daily-
use comfort. Yet, highly recommanded
with its built quality and reliability.


Best Features

200hp 195lbf-ft V6, interior design, reliability, built quality, leather


Worst Features

Manual, slightly firmer suspension, 17" wheel

2001 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We love our Accord coupe ("Heidi")!!
The 2001 body style is sporty, yet
elegant (especially in silver). Her V6
accelerates supremely when passing. She
has a sliding/tilting sun roof that is
great, as is the trunk room - very
spacious for a car this size. The rear
seating is tight for 3 older teenagers
(triplets), but that didn't stop us
from taking it on vacations and trips
to see family out of state. When it
comes down to it, what we like the most
about Heidi is the sheer feeling of
free-spiritedness that she gives us. At
slightly over 100,000 miles, she still
drives like a dream.


Best Features

I love the radio/CD control in the steering wheel. The leather interior is great, too. I can't count how many times (when I get out) that I turn around to take another look at the beautiful styling of this car. She's definitely a beaut!


Worst Features

Re-design the plastic attachment device that attaches the panel onto the back of the front seats. Continued pressure of people leaning on this panel to get in and out of the back seat, puts stress on these four plastic holders until they become weak and break.

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


Review

I LOVE THIS CAR! Hands down, one of
the best values out there for the
money. The only way you can get a
nicer Honda is to buy an Acura.

The V6 offers quite enough power for
any driving conditions and the
interior finish is well insulated and
provides a nice comforable ride.

I highly recommend this car for anyone
looking for a luxury car at an economy
car price.


Best Features

The V6 offers a great bump in power and makes the car seem much more like a sports car.


Worst Features

*Better gearing on the transmission to take advantage of the V6 engine. *Digital/LCD clock and Odometer should be better designed to match the other EX features.
