Great Car

Jan 27, 2008 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Look, handling, fuel economy, seat comfort, durability, everything.
Cons: honestly can't even think of one.
The Bottom Line: The best car I have ever had. I like it better than the newer body style, though i am sure the quality has not changed.

I put 89,000 miles on my 2001 Accord coupe EX-L 4-cyl 5 speed with only one problem in the entire ownership. At 36,000 miles a light went on in the dashboard that was quickly resolved by the dealership by reseting the computer. Other than that it ... read more

I have had my Accord for 2 years now. It is the V6 Coupe EX. I love this car. I have had very minimal problems with it, the most being with the brakes because I am a speed demon and I live in the city which makes the usage of breaks very frequent. ... read more

Pros: 4-cylinder with no torque gets acceptable gas mileage
Cons: Everything other than getting acceptable mileage
The Bottom Line: Steer clear, run away, etc. if you would like to walk away from a crash alive.

This car was the worst car that I have ever owned. I was swindled by the Honda salesman and thought I was getting a great car... oops. It's not just that the 4-cylinder engine has no power whatsoever due to its complete lack of torque, or that Honda ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliable, economical, comfortable, good resale value, Honda quality service
Cons: Dealers won’t haggle much, Honda’s short (36K) warranty, wife gets to drive it

We bought our silver 2001 Accord EX with V6 at the end of the 2001 model year. Previously, we purchased new Accords in 1981 and 1987. We only sold the 81’ because it lacked air conditioning; our daughter still drives the 87’ with no significant ... read more

Pros: Reliability, interior design, gas mileage
Cons: Dull exterior - but it's a Honda. We expect this.
The Bottom Line: This is a solid, long-term, reliable car. I swore I'd drive it until the wheels fall off, and that's apparently going to be a while.

I am in year 7 of my first Honda Accord. We traded a 2000 Jetta VR6 and skipped the BMW we'd planned on buying. Performance: The 200hp engine still zips. I'm not an aggressive driver, but in Washington D.C., you have to be an assertive driver. You ... read more

That's right. I bought a used Honda Accord EX recently (September, 2004). No choice because my 1989 Honda Civic, which I bought brand new in 1989, was about to give up. I think the transmission was going bad and it probably wouldn't last to the end of ... read more

Not Bulletproof, But Still The Best Car I Have Ever Owned

by
Aug 17, 2004 - Updated Mar 21, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Pros: Silky smooth shifter, refined VTEC engine, storage bins, good ergonomics, exacting body gaps, cold A/C.
Cons: Secretive recalls, highway wind noise, inaccurate gas gauge, below average stereo, flimsy exterior sheet metal.
The Bottom Line: The combination of Honda stick shifts and VTEC engines = a very highly refined drivetrain. Any Honda or Acura product with the V6/automatic transmission combination should be avoided, however.

I purchased my Accord brand new in late January of 2001 and now it has about 64,000 miles. My 2001 Honda Accord is the EX version with the cloth interior, four doors, a 5 speed manual tranny and a 4 cylinder VTEC engine. The EX ... read more

Pros: Handles well, spacious interior, comfortable, good stereo/CD/cassette combo
Cons: It looks awful, gas mileage doesn't seem as good as older Hondas.

Pros: EX V6 has all features without bargaining for options, reasonable price

Pros: This model is dependable, requires low maintenance, safe, and is enjoyable to drive.

The Bottom Line: As a package, I like the Accord very much. There are specific items which could be improved, but for the long term, I don't think I could have beat it.

Original Review (Update at end): I've got almost 3 months and 5000 miles on a 2001 Accord EX. I picked the car up new in March from the local dealer in the following configuration - Typical 2001 Accord EX-VL (leather interior, V6, Traction Control, ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reputation,quality,styling,gas mileage,and safety.
Cons: Headlight controls.
The Bottom Line: If you are looking for a family car buy it, it's not a sports car or a Cadillac. This car is safe and it does not depreciate like a Cadillac.

I owned a Subaru Legacy for 10 years before deciding to trade. The search for a new car was narrowed to the Accord and Camry, both were equal in my opinion I just got a good deal on the Accord. The EX is the model I got, with leather seats, ... read more

Nice body style, Bad Driving Experience

by
Jun 1, 2001 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: Nice interior, smooth ride, very stylish
Cons: V6 is little hesitant, and weak for my standards. Driver side steering wheel awkward.
The Bottom Line: If you can put up with a less than desired V6 and cramped driver side, then buy this car, everything else is simply sweet

This was a nice car, one of my friends got the 2001 last week, and surprisingly she let me drive it all weekend. This car is very stylish, fully loaded, leather seats, simply sweet. Driving wise I was a little disappointed. The V6 was a little weak ... read more

Pros: Smooth, quiet, responsive, elegant. Fully loaded and decently priced.
Cons: One of the largest 2 doors, dash is a little TOO clean. Expensive options.

Pros: All Honda is known for: Comfort, visibility, controls etc
Cons: Less features depending on trim lines
The Bottom Line: If you want to own a very reliable car that is close to luxury, go for Honda Accord EX. I had a great experience with one for two days.

Honda Accord stays true to its design and engineering history with the 2001 model. It comes in three lines: DX, LX and EX. For sure, it comes with a lot of changes. The features make the 2001 Honda Accord safer and more fun to drive. Two weeks ago, ... read more

Pros: reliability, value, agility, simple option list, resale value

The Bottom Line: Hard to beat as a practical family car, but I prefer better styling, refinement, and safety(always my top priority). The Accord lacks "personality"

Pros: Impressive fit and finish detail, its a "HONDA!"
Cons: Plain vanilla styling. OK ... vanilla with walnuts on top.

Loving your "ex?" Didn't know you were married! No, silly, that's loving my E.X.-model Accord. And who wouldn't? This is my second Accord. My first was a 97 Accord LX and I loved every minute I drove it. Because I now have a job where I ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Honda reliability, high resale value, looks better than Camry (Japanese Buick)
Cons: My EX model's MSRP was $22,640. Seats are firm, wish I could afford V6

I'm really enjoying my new Honda! This EX model 4-door automatic has a power sunroof, alloy wheels, 6-disc in-dash CD changer, remote keyless entry, power everything, and (KEY FOR ME) lumbar support in the driver's seat. I tried an LX model (lumbar ... read more

After my car was recently stolen (Acura 1993), I decided to look at a variety of cars of all sizes and shapes. Amongst the other cars I looked at (Jetta, TL, Passat, BMW, Audi), the Accord was on the list. Granted it's the King of the Purple Panda ... read more

2001 Honda Accord: Not at all accordingly priced

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: Quality control, resale value, reliability
Cons: acceleration, handling, price, looks bland
The Bottom Line: Reputation and reliability are not adequate compensation for performance and comfort in my opinion and the Accord needs to "gear up" to get me to consider buying it.

The 2001 Honda Accord is the perfect example of a sedan that proves good advertising and brand name appeal perseveres over quality performance. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder and in my opinion, the 2001 Honda Accord ... read more
