Thanks for the official PR stuff on the 2001 car; if there is really a noticeable difference in road noise [as they claim], then they've got me - I'll be ready to spring for a new one, probably an EXV6 sedan, though the new equipment and trim on the LXV6 means it would work for me just as well. [Problem is they seem to build 20 EXs for every 1 LX when it comes to the 6 cyl cars.] Anyway, thanks for the update.

The sedan accord pictures on this site look like the 2000. Anyway, sound like accord engineers are listening to criticism on this site.

The pictures of both the sedan and coupe clearly show the changes they describe, at least regards the front end and the wheels, which is all we can see. And the Ruby Pearl color on the sedan is new to the EX for this year, as well. You can see the changes in the sedan's grill, hood, and bumper fascia. I like what I see, and even more the description of the interior changes, including making the CD player std in the LX, and the combo cassette and 6-CD changer standard in the EX. Assuming they restrain themselves on price increases, say no more than $300-500, and there really are noticeable differences in road noise, it sounds like nothing but good news...
#5 of 20255 I'm looking for a reliable used car

I would like a good first car under $8,000 and newer than '89. If its possible I'd like something sporty like a coupe. Please give me an idea what model year to look for and how much.

This is very populat topic along with several others. Because of this reason, we are always at the end of the list. We can not even get the first page easly. At the other side so many slow moving topics are occupying the front page and since I started to read this site (almost two years) they are still there like Stratus, Kia etc.
Why Edmund's does not give first page to topics with high volume postings. Just an idea but I believe there are many others think like this.

...click on Last Post at the top of the column of dates. This will sort the topics by order of last post, descending, keeping the most frequented and popular topics at the top of the list. The default sort order is by topic number ascending. I've suggested that we change it. Maybe they will, some day...
#8 of 20255 Noise
Aug 03, 2000 (5:49 am)
Hi everyone, I have a question for the owners of Accord with ABS ( SE, EX ), I own an SE and I hear a noise when I move the car after been parked, like a steering wheel leak or something, I took it to the dealer and they told me that it's a normal noise and that was the ABS pump pressure or module, I am no sure what he said, but he told me when I'll bring the car for the 35000 miles service, to have someone look at it, well I am asking my self if he says it's a normal noise (which I don't think it is) why would he say to have someone look at it? are they trying to save money or what??? Does any body have this problem? Any comments will be appreciate.
#9 of 20255 Noise & ABS

ABS works on pressure applied on brakes. When u apply pressure as in case of panic braking, ABS will come into picture and you will hear a peculiar kind of sound. If you are coming to a stop at signal and release brake slightly u can hear some sound which is of ABS. SO I guess it should be normal as ABS does makes sounds when presuure is applied and some how you seems to be doing this.

When firing up the car after shutdown, the ABS system is "tested and cycled" by the electronics. All Honda products with ABS have this characteristic - all of the Acura boards have addressed this noise at one time or another. Sounds to me that the techs are probably right, but diagnosing noises by internet is by definition not possible...
