Honda Accord Old (2001-2002) Car Battery
About the Model
The Honda Accord holds a special place in the hearts of Indians. This versatile saloon’s 6th generation first made its appearance on Indian roads in July 2001. In just two months, this 5-seater sedan had sold more than 600 units. It was a favourite with businessmen and professionals who wanted to make a statement.
Features and Specifications
Honda’s flagship model was available in both automatic and manual transmissions with a petrol engine of 2354 cc. Based on the variant and fuel type, the Accord 2001-2003 gave a mileage of 11.1 – 11.9 kmpl.
It is possible that you’re contemplating buying a used Accord if you love affordable and big sedans. Given that it comes from the Honda brand, you can also safely trust it. The first-generation of Accord in India was actually the sixth-generation globally. While its price back then was somewhere around Rs. 15 lakhs, you will now find it for as less as Rs. 1 lakh.
However, these cars will have covered thousands of kilometres, because of which reliability issues may arise. If you can find a car in good condition and are sure you want to go ahead with the purchase, take it for a test drive. Also, visit an authorised Honda Service Centre to get a reliable estimate of your future expenditure on maintaining it. It is recommended you go ahead with the purchase if you’re really looking for a vintage vehicle. An important thing is to test the car’s battery and make sure they’re in workable shape.
What Causes Car Batteries to Fail?
Especially in old vehicles, the car battery is quick to corrode. Over time, this causes car battery failure. If your old Honda Accord is experiencing battery troubles, it is best to engage professionals like Car Fit Experts.
If your car battery keeps dying, again and again, it is possible that there is a parasitic drain on it. To check if this is the case, disconnect the battery cable and check for current flow with a test light or multimeter. If you feel you can’t accurately diagnose the problem yourself, get your battery tested by trained technicians who will take much less time to detect the problem. Extreme weather conditions can also weaken car batteries over time. Whatever may be the problem, choose professional car care services if you want your vehicle – new or old – to last for a long time.
