2001 Honda Accord Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Honda’s most-popular model and a perennial contender for best-selling passenger car in the United States gains new safety features and fresh front and rear styling for 2001.

The Accord’s front airbags are now the dual-stage type that deploy at one of two levels depending on crash severity and whether the seat belts are buckled. Side-impact airbags for the front seats are now standard on V-6 models and four-cylinder EX models and optional on DX and LX models. The side airbag next to the passenger seat will not deploy if sensors detect a child or small adult is leaning into the deployment path.

V-6 models also add standard traction control. Antilock brakes are standard on EX models and optional on LX versions of the front-drive Accord, which returns as a four-door sedan and a two-door coupe.

Exterior
The Accord sedan and coupe sport a new front fascia and hood with more chiseled styling and new taillights. The coupe also gets new front and rear bumpers and a body-color grille. Though the coupe and sedan share major styling themes, the coupe is different in most aspects. It is shorter and has less exterior ornamentation. The coupe’s wheelbase measures 105 inches, while the sedan comes in at 107 inches. At nearly 189 inches overall, the sedan is about 2 inches longer.

Interior
The Accord gained a wider interior when it was redesigned for 1998, making the rear seat more accommodating. However, three adults in the rear seat is still a crowd. The front buckets have amp...

The coupe’s wheelbase measures 105 inches, while the sedan comes in at 107 inches. At nearly 189 inches overall, the sedan is about 2 inches longer.

Interior
The Accord gained a wider interior when it was redesigned for 1998, making the rear seat more accommodating. However, three adults in the rear seat is still a crowd. The front buckets have ample space.

EX models now have a standard sound system that includes a cassette and an in-dash six-CD player. The dashboard has 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 entry to the trunk from the interior.

Under the Hood
Engine choices remain a 2.3-liter inline-four-cylinder or a 3.0-liter V-6, and models sold in California meet the state’s “super-ultra-low-emission vehicle” standards, the strictest in the world. The four-cylinder DX model has 135 horsepower, while the four-cylinder LX and EX models have variable valve technology that boosts horsepower to 150. A 200-hp V-6 is available on LX and EX models. The V-6 comes only with a four-speed automatic transmission, and the four-cylinders have a choice of automatic or five-speed manual transmissions.

Driving Impressions
The Accord is an excellent choice among midsize cars, and a safe one as well, because of its abundant safety features. 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 an array of amenities.

Most reliable car in the world!!

by LaDany R from Chandler, AZ on February 22, 2020

This car and any Honda cars are super reliable as long as you do the maintenance and oil changes. These cars can go up to 300,000 or more! No oil leaks or major costs to repair anything... Read full review

Most reliable car in the world!

by Robeastvlogs from Sacramento, CA on February 13, 2020

Super nice car for a teenager as a first. Definitely unique and would recommend to everyone. Packs in enough power for a fun ride but freeway would use too much gas because its a 4-speed automatic. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

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.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

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.

What is included in 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).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

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.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
