Review of the 1998 Hyundai Accent

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    One of the least expensive modes of transportation on the road. Hyundais are more reliable than you think.

  • Cons

    Interior upholstery can be unnatractive. Strange rear end.

  • What's New for 1998

    The Accent GSi replaces the Accent GT this year. New front and rear fascias, and new engine mounts, which reduce engine vibration and harshness, are the only other changes to Hyundai's smallest car.

Amazing car

Vehicle: 1997 Hyundai Accent

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.

My first whip

Vehicle: 1997 Hyundai Accent

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




Eh, it was cheap at

sux, period. What else can you say. We needed a car and this was the least we could spend on 4 moving wheels at the time.




You get what you pay

Vehicle: 1997 Hyundai Accent

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 for you.




My 1st car

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Hyundai Accent

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.




Accent is the best!

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.
