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


I've been driving my Accord for 3 weeks now and have been generally pleased with its performance. However, I have two issues:

1) the transmission shifting is rough in the morning when the temperature is under 30 degrees. Once warmed up the transmission performs smoothly

2) the engine emits a strange 'refrigerator like sound when the fridge starts up'. The Honda only makes this sound when the gas pedal is depressed thereby loading the engine. Back off the gas pedal and the sound goes away. I tried hi-test gas thinking the engine had 'engine knock' but it didn't make any difference.

Best Features

Love the 6 CD player. I like the dash layout. Deplore the lack of a glove compartment light. Like the moon roof feature of the rear of the roof lifting up which greatly facilitates air flow.

Worst Features

Glove compartment light.
