Review of the 2002 Hyundai Accent

  • In base hatchback form, this is America's least expensive car. While we might steer our friends toward a slightly used Japanese car, the Accent's great warranty and solid build quality could make it a satisfying choice for the determined new-car buyer.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Smooth ride, low price, impressive powertrain warranty.

  • Cons

    Unrefined demeanor, lack of standard equipment and amenities.

  • What's New for 2002

    Air conditioning becomes standard equipment on GS and GL models. Otherwise, Hyundai's bargain-basement car soldiers on to 2002 with no…

Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

As a Honda guy i wasnt very fond of getting a Hyundai. Bought in 2011 with 163000 and boy am i glad i did. Gets me 39mpg all highway. I drive it about 50 miles daily. I have the 4 door with the 1.6L auto. Mine does have a small noise in muffler but mechanic told me this was common on that year. Plus i dont mind cause it sounds cool, lol! Great car! Parts are easy to find and cheap. I recommend it!

Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

I honestly don't understand all these reviews. I guess their previous owners didn't take care of their little Hyundai because my car runs great and is in great shape. The transmission and engine runs great. I don't understand the comments on the handling. The brakes could be better, but they have no problem. People need to realize that Hyundai was still not a very large company when the 2000-2004 Accents came out. And the Accent was Hyundai's least expensive car. The interior scratches easily and the paint gets dings and scratches easily as well. But this was meant to be a realible INEXPENSIVE car for people that want a decent car and have money to put gas in it too. =]

Vehicle: 2002 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

Had car for under a year, replaced O2 sensor, brakes, battery and tires. Next year battery (only 1 kind available) O2 sensor. Next year, belts, water pump Brakes O2 Sensor. Every year I had to replace at least 1 of the O2 sensors, speed sensor and trans sensor of some sort (since year 3) None was covered as it is normal wear and tear (!@#$). Gas pedal stuck after 5 years and now my trans is failing. Will never buy again, bad warranty, bad price and cheap, cheap car (not in price just in quality)
