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


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

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

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.
