Review of the 2001 Hyundai Accent

  • Despite a great warranty and good build quality, we'd probably tell our friends to get a slightly used Japanese car instead. This may not be the case for long if Hyundai maintains its upward trajectory, though.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Smooth and quiet ride, roomy interior, impressive powertrain warranty.

  • Cons

    Boring styling, lack of horsepower.

  • What's New for 2001

    For 2001, Accent GL and GS get a more powerful and fuel-efficient 1.6-liter, DOHC inline four-cylinder engine.

Utilitarian with character

Vehicle: 2001 Hyundai Accent GS 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

This is the second car I've owned and the first I've come to love. Bought it with 135,000 miles and still starts and runs great at 147,000 miles. Have only had to replace manual window regulator, and do routine maintenance. I love to drive this car! It gets great gas mileage, is very reliable, and with rear seats folded is capable of holding LOTS of stuff. I frequently go on camping and road trips and i'm easily able to fit all my gear in the back hatch (and often times a canoe on top too). I am 6'6" tall and 275lbs and I easily fit in the interior, and am also able to climb in and out of the rear seat when front is folded, a difficult task in my other friends coupes.




Only had to change oil

Only had to change oil every 3,000 miles and just changed plugs water pump and all belts at 108,000 miles, the most reliable car I have had

Ol' reliable

Vehicle: 2001 Hyundai Accent GS 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

This has been a generally great little car. It is not very peppy when you first take off, but it is great once it gets going. I get 33mpg in town and 36 mpg on the highway. Mileage with ethanol is lower. It is unbelievable how much this can carry with the rear seat folded down. This car was in an accident about 5 years ago. I t-boned a Ford LTD that ran the light. I hit their center support column and their car was a loss, not mine. The crumple zone did its job and nothing farther back than the battery was touched. I had no major injuries. The car went for years with only oil changes. In ten years, besides belts and hoses, I have only replaced the computer and the water pump.
