    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    i was trying to figure out the best way to make the new IB baffle look nicer from inside the car (when the seat is folded down or looking through the armrest).

    i already had the three-layer baffle made,


    I just needed something to trim-out the inside view. i tried other materials around the opening (where you can see all three layers) but finally settled on felt.



    then i cut another 3/4" piece to act as a beauty panel and provide even more stiffening to bring the baffle to 3" thick.


    next I need to do some more trunk work



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    UPDATE

    selling the car soon. going to strip everything out and return to "stock"

    buying a new car and starting over.

    my accord is just fine but time for a nicer platform - 2014 Accord is on the top of my list just above a 2014 Mazda 6.

    I hate the new camrys they have one of the worst suspensions I have ever ridin on. I do like the accord and the mazda 6, but I really love my 2014 cruze diesel. I had a gas one but 53mpg is alot better than the 30mpg my 2011 LT got and the interior is dead quiet except at idle. Then you can tell I have a diesel motor.

    the suspension is the most forgiving and most refined, but that also means it's very lazy.

    the Accord is still my #1 .

    the Passat TDI would be the only diesel i would consider.

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    The 2014 accords are really nice. I've been working for honda for eight years now and they are great. The 4 cyl has that stupid cvt trans tho so you might want to look at the 6spd sport or the v6. If you get the six cyl atleast you get the automatic. The Mazda is really nice as well tho so you have a tough choice. The Camry is a Japanese Buick lol.

    Vw tdi motors have been having problems recently and while being a few grand cheaper it really shows it. Plus I get better mileage than average tdi drivers.

    I like vw but it was 8g more for the one I wanted.

    Still the accord was high in my book before deciding on a diesel motor.

    the Passat is a distant 4th, a combination of cost and complexity.

    The Accord CVT is better than most CVT but still awkward at low speeds and light throttle use. The Camry transmission is probably the most reliable and also pretty slick. Consumer Reports lists the Camry one of the top sedans in terms of ride quality, interior comfort, interior space, and reliability. It also has larger speaker locations and will easily accommodate my 3" deep woofers. And unlike the Accord LX, you can get power seats in the LE. But it's not very good looking, you get steel wheels in the LE, and the gauges are stupid.

    I am about 80% sold on the Accord. I'd like an EX-L but I cannot justify the extra cost. I don't like the 2011-2012 models very much. 2013 had CVT issues.
