2000 Hyundai Accent GS 2dr Hatchback

Review

Bought new as a drive-to-work car. Had 2 minor problems long ago-throttle sensor and driver window motor. Fast fixes under warranty. I've treated it well and it has returned the favor. This is not a race car nor an SUV so you can't abuse it. I suspect this is where most oil and other problems come from. Changed oil every 3-5K, the timing belt at 45K service. Clutch pedal throwout bearing started minor chattering at 65K. Warranty covered and dealer did clutch (not needed but did it while warranty covered disassembly and reassembly). Won't set records but accelerates just fine. 33 mpg city, 36- 43mpg highway depending on grade of gas. Age is setting in but it is still strong. Never leaked.

Best Features

Warranty! Hauled my lawnmower, weed and hedge trimmers, rake, broom, chainsaw and gas cans all at once! Put my mountain bike, pressure washer and generator in the back too! Loved the vinyl headliner - cloth gets dirty and peels. Super smooth and easy clutch. Friends call it the Mighty Hyundai.

Worst Features

Cruise control! Forget the 1.6 L engine, it gets less mpg. Go back to the 1.5! Have to reach way back for the front seat belts. It is what it is - a tiny, inexpensive run-about that if cared for will last. Would buy another today but this one won't quit.
