Great little car

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Hyundai Accent

I bought my car used as a emergency had to have a car as my old one died. I have been very happy since. It is great on mileage(38mpg). The timing belt broke while I was driving so since then I've had a new engine. I has 169,000 miles on it and it still hauls wood for my wood stove like a little pick up truck. The front has a few dents so when I nailed a deer with it I didn't really mind. I will definitely get another Hyundai when this one dies. But, I do need a truck too. either way, we will always have a Hyundai in our dooryard.




Miss my 95

Vehicle: 1995 Hyundai Accent

I had purchased my 95 accent as my first car with 100 thousand miles already on it. I spent a grand on it and I probably put about 500 into it total over the span of 2 years. With almost 60 thousand miles added I only had one problem, a screw bent in the clutch. I trusted the car with my life and I now have a 2004 hyundai accent and I am constantly comparing it to my old car. I recommend this car for anyone who wants a cheap car to get around. The only problem was the crank windows, nothing a little elbow grease couldn't handle though, I was buff at the end of the 2 years.




Fun runaround

Vehicle: 1995 Hyundai Accent

This is a great car, especially in ways you would not think...like performance, very sure footed, and ample power. However a bit uncomfortable if you intend to leave town with it.




Good solid car

Vehicle: 1995 Hyundai Accent

This was my second Hyundai, and it was a great choice. I have been driving this car for seven years, and it is still like new to me. There have been no unpleasant surprises, just regular maintenance. The ride is a little rough, so that you seem to be going much faster than you are (which is good for folks like me who drive too fast), but other than that it has really great drivability. And, it has a cute butt.




Love it, would buy another

Vehicle: 1995 Hyundai Accent

Great mileage. Had to replace the alternator around 130,000. Replaced clutch and transmission around 96,000, but mine had only 75,000 warranty so I paid, but it wasn't a lot of money. MY window was sticky too, the more time went on the harder it was to crank it up, then finally it dropped inthe door, but I took it to the local windshield/glass store and they put it back on the track for $25. Outside of that no other problems with car. Paid 9475 for it, and have put about $1000 in it. Not including tires/brakes. Have only had to put one set of brakes onthe car and I have 147000 miles onthe car.

It's been fun driving my Hyundai Accent for the last 1 year. The only problem Ive had was with the Manual Windows, but otherwise it's a great car.
