Our Take on the Latest Model 2000 Honda Accord

2000 Honda Accord Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Honda’s most popular model and the second best-selling passenger car in the United States is cleaning up its act. All 2000 Accords sold in the United States will meet California's low-emission vehicle standards.

Starting in January, Accord EX models sold in California with a four-cylinder engine and automatic transmission will be certified as "super ultra-low emission vehicles," meeting standards that don't take effect in that state until the 2004 model year. The Accord is the first gasoline-powered vehicle to meet those standards.

Exterior
Though the two-door coupe and four-door sedan share major styling themes, the coupe is different in most aspects. It is shorter, has less exterior ornamentation and sports a different grille, for example. Wheelbase on the coupe is 105 inches, and the sedan's is 107. At nearly 189 inches, the sedan is about 2 inches longer overall.

Interior
Accord gained a wider interior when it was redesigned for 1998, making the rear seat more accommodating. However, three adults in the back seat are still a crowd. The front buckets have ample space. Typical of Honda, the dashboard is a simple, functional design that is convenient and attractive. All models have a folding rear seatback to supplement the trunk; the seatback can be locked to prevent unwanted entry to the trunk.

Under the Hood
The DX model uses a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine with 135 horsepower, while the LX and EX models use an engine of the same size with variable-valve technology that boosts horsepower to 150. A 200-horsepower V-6 engine is available on LX and EX models. The V-6 comes only with automatic, and the four-cylinders have a choice of automatic or manual shift.

Anti-lock brakes are standard on EX models and LX models with the V-6 and optional on four-cylinder LX sedans with automatic transmission.

Safety
All models have a front passenger airbag with a dual-stage inflator that varies deployment force based on crash severity and whether the seatbelt is buckled. Models with leather upholstery now come with side-impact airbags for the front seats.

Performance
The Accord is a no-brainer among midsize cars. It is reliable, durable, enjoyable to drive, reasonably priced and sure to have high resale value. Though the V-6 models are the most refined and best-equipped, the four cylinder versions provide brisk acceleration, capable handling and a full complement of amenities.

Best car I have ever owned

by Krista from Mobile, Al on November 15, 2017

It’s dependable, nice looking, comfortable, big enough but not too big. It will get up and go in no time at all.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
