2001 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan w/ABS and Side Airbags (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned this car for nearly 5 years, I bought it from a family friend and dealership owner.
The car itself is a good automobile except we have replaced the transmission 3 times with used ones and yet again- this one is slipping REALLY bad.
I called Honda to express my concerns but they have yet to recall these darn transmissions after numerous complaints.
If you feel like your are the only person fighting the 2001 Accord Transmission problem, your not alone.
My husband also a mechanic has several friends to rebuild it but literally our cost is $2500.
If he were to do it himself, its around $2000. I had hoped in the mass recall would include this Accord but it didnt.
FIGHT FIGHT!


Worst Features

The proper thing for Honda of America to do would be to review all the consumer complaints of this year and fix them already! If everyone reached out to them that had issues, I am pretty sure they would recall them. Such a shame, I have always been a Honda owner and fan- but my next vehicle will NOT be a Honda. I am so disappointed with the newer models.... Such a tragedy.

2001 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan w/ABS and Side Airbags (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car used in 2001.
The transmission lasted until 2009.
I had another one put in and it lasted 7 months.
I was not happy about this issue and did not find that the 2001 was standard for transmission failure.
I feel like another consumer that Honda knew about the failure and sold the car for regular price.
This does allow me to place my trust in honda very well.
I wish there was someone that could make honda pay the 2001 owners back.
All that money and no car, does not seem very fair.
They have theirs and they are gone.


Best Features

I loved the bass of the radio. I also like the shape of the car. The inside was fair but cloth seats well you know. I like shining the black trim around the car. and I liked the way it handle. Never had a accident to deploy the air bags.

2001 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I used to own a 2001 Naples Gold EX Honda Accord.
I had it for nine years and had only 39,000 miles.
Unfortunately, I was involved in seven cars accidents with this car.
It survived six accidents.
It was totaled approximately a month ago, alas, the seventh car accident.
Fortunately, I was able to walk away from all those accidents in one piece.
I never had any problems with this car (except the accidents).
This was a great car and I got an outstanding deal on it.
However, no more Hondas for me.


Best Features

I liked everything about this car!

2001 Honda Accord Value Package 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love my 2001 Accord vp! It has over 185k miles and continues to be reliable! I have had to replace many parts, but this is mostly due to normal wear and tear. Belts wear, seals leak. But that happens to any well used car. My engine and transmission are mechanically sound! I just bought a second Accord, because I was ready for new car with more features ( ex-l) and so don't want to sell my old one because I love it!
