Review of the 1997 Hyundai Accent

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Very inexpensive but not cheaply constructed, feels solid, offers peppy performance

  • Cons

    Hyundai's spotty reliability record, unlikely to hold value well

  • What's New for 1997

    In the absence of truly ground-breaking improvement, Hyundai revises trim levels, adding GS hatchback and GL sedan midrange models.

Vehicle: 1997 Hyundai Accent GT 2dr Hatchback

The car was really fun to drive when i first bought it in 2002. I've had a problem with it eating tires. i have to put new tires on about every 3 months even when i buy expencive tires. i've had the alinement done and it still goes through tires. I've had to put an alternater in and replace a barring in one of the tires. Otherwise it has been fairly reliable i drive about 45 miles everyday for school and work. It gets about 32-35 mpg. so thats nice but it shakes really bad and there is a lot of noise when driving. it has 135,000 miles so i guess problems are to be expected.

EXTREMELY RELIABLE: vehicle has over 100K now. The only things I ever had to change were battery, thermostat, battery cables and windshield washer pump. Very good handling and performance for the price. Very roomy inside. Durability of paint was very poor though, and the ride could be more comfortable. Also rather noisy, but it is normal for the class.

This is my third Accent(first was a 1997 hatch GS with 54,000 miles on it and no issues which later involved in an accident and totaled, second Accent owned a Hatch L purchased in 1999 with 40,000 miles on it...NO PROBLEMS AT ALL....still have it with 96,000mi), since then I have purchased a 1997 Accent GT. I owned a Grand Am in 86 & 92(when they redesigned it), and both cars had issues starting in the winter BRAND NEW...NEVER BUY ONE AGAIN.
