2002 Hyundai Accent GS 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Review
All, I bought my '02 Accent new. Since then, I've racked up 115,000 on the odo with 80% highway driving of 75 miles/day Monday-Friday. To date, I really can't complain. Beyond normal wear items, I've replaced both back wheel cylinders ($15 ea) and the (dreaded) flex pipe and pipe extension ($45) due to rust-through. The car still gets great gas mileage and doesn't burn oil. I'll need to work on the front end (I think some bushings are worn as there is a "clunk" over pot holes), but, knock wood, it's holding up well.
Favorite Features
Great gas mileage; Cold air and hot heat; Ease of maintenance. I do all of my own maintenance, including engine repair, so parts availability and being able to do the job myself is a must. I bought a "simple" car (no power windows, auto trans, etc.) for a reason and to date it has met my expectations.
Suggested Improvements
You get what you pay for. Considering I paid less than 10K for a new car with air & stereo and have gotten 115K miles out of it I am happy.
