1996 Hyundai Accent 2dr Hatchback


Review

This vehicle has been low maintenance...aside from typical wear and tear...brakes, tires, etc. Gets about 35 miles per gallon. Very reliable. Owned for 12 years

1996 Hyundai Accent 2dr Hatchback


Review

Bought new. No problems for first 8 years then things started to go wrong. both door handles have broken off. I have loved the car for the most part. I am considering buying a 2008 accent. It is a great buy for the money, roomy, fun to drive, great gas mileage. What more does someone want! We must have liked our 96 if we are looking to buy a 2008, plus a warranty that is great. If you are thinking of buying a Hyundai it is a great buy and you won't be sorry!


Best Features

Roomy interior, roomy trunk, fun to drive.


Worst Features

I think they have already improved the door handles, quality has gone up since 96. They have made air conditioning std which it wasn't in 96, the warranty is better than 96 also, part of the reason we are considering buying a 2008

1996 Hyundai Accent GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

Truth is the car uses a mitsubishi engine if people didnt know and its so easy to to customize, its not a car people normally assume is fast so when persons realize whoa thats a hyundai, its like yea fast isnt it. Its cheaper than alot of other cars to maintain and cheap to boost if your interested in speed.


Best Features

Handling, Acceleration, Suspension


Worst Features

Just improve the looks of the car tho its a hot car with the right person working on it.

1996 Hyundai Accent 4dr Sedan


Review

This car is a complete piece of junk. I purchased this vehicle from a private seller and it had 103,000 miles on it. It seemed to be in great shape and run good, but after only a few hundred miles it's true colors began to show. The engine finally blew and I replaced it with another identical engine from a junkyard car and had the exact same problems. I was fortunate enough to sell the car while it was actually running. I have had many cars in my lifetime and this was probably the biggest piece of crap of all time! Don't even think about buying one!


Best Features

Gas milage


Worst Features

Quit making it!
