Review of the 2004 Hyundai Accent

  • A decent buy for those determined to own a brand-new car with full-warranty coverage, though we'd encourage prospective owners to shop the used car market before closing the deal.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Excellent warranty, low price, nicely appointed interior, solid build quality, smooth ride.

  • Cons

    Weak tires, low handling limits, can't get cruise control or antilock brakes.

  • What's New for 2004

    Side-impact airbags are now standard equipment on all models. A GT version of the hatchback is now available that adds performance features like a sport-tuned suspension and larger wheels and tires.

Great little car

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

I love this little car I just bought it a few months ago as my first car for $3,700 It's been great to me so far, although it feels like I'm not getting the best gas miles I could be getting. My car has around 99,000 miles on it and it's still drives like a dream, it may not be a Lexus but it's still an awesome car, it would be great as someones first car.

Transmission issue

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

The car has transmission issue, i thought it is mine only, then after researching the web i found it is very common, it is also pulls to the right, i took it to Firestone, they found a factory error that can not be corrected (it was not that bad), the conclusion is: you get what you pay for, the good thing is parts are kinda cheap compared to other cars.




Take it off the market

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

Take it off the market before someone gets hurt. It is a piece of junk and a saftey hazard. Hard to control and even harder at higher speeds. Hyundai does NOT stand behind their products. I have spent more time at the dealerhip than driving this junk.




You get what you pay

PERFORMANCE IS NOT GOOD. HARD TO HANDLE AND STEER. SWAYS TO THE LEFT. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. COULD INTERFERE WITH SAFETY.




Driving hazard

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

I also drove not only my new Accent but another one. They both have the same steering problem. Resulting in the way the car is made. While driving the goes pulls to the left. I was told that with the torte steering and a small car it will do that and is not a repair issue. As the months went on the pull to the left got worse. It was very hard to handle on the road and I feel it is a driving hazard.




Reliable & fun to drive

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)

My 2003 Hyundai Accent GL has been a surprisingly reliable fun to drive car. It has great pick up, Air conditioning and shifts almost undetectably. GREAT BUY!!!!! The sound system is unbelievable!!!!!
