In the 70,000 miles since I got the car,(it's at 156,000 at the moment) I've had to fix nothing but an 02 sensor and the timing belt/water pump. It's completely gutless, and not much bigger than a Geo Metro, but I've ranged from 35-42 MPG overall, the turn radius is crazy small, and it fits in any parking space. Plus, tires are dirt cheap. I got Bridgestone tires from Costco for $38 each.

Point a to point b... Thats it. Ive owned this car since it first hit the market and as far as maintenance, ive had no problems with it. The interior could be a little softer and the size iz torture. I really don't think tall people are supposed to drive it. No back seat space and barely any trunk space... But it does have good mileage

I bought this car close to two years
ago, and I have yet to find a feature
that stands out as anything special.
If I were to drive only dowhill, or
only in an area where the air
conditioning was completely
unneccesarry, I would enjoy the ride
much more. Unfortunately, it
sluggishly makes its way around, and
it cannot take hills with the AC on.
If you want to have fun on your way to
work each morning, this car may not be

I received my Hyundai as a graduation
gift from high school. And in the 6
almost 7 years I had this car it has
only had major work done to it 3x and I
purchased it with 11k miles on it. The
gas mileage is great considering this
is my second vehicle. Overall I would
buy another if they didnt depreciate
value so quickly.

The 4 dr Accent was the best vehicle I
have owned. It is so much fun to drive
and has never given me any problems
beyond routine maintenance. I have had
my car for 4 years, and it will be hard
to part with it.
