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.

Champina -- surprised to find

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

We purchased our used 2004 Accent GL Sedan last August for $3,600.00. This amazing compact car quickly became our go-to choice -- even for distance travel! She's already been roundtrip from Nebraska to Arizona. We named her "Champina". Our first vehicle is a 2001 Dodge RAM Pickup with every luxury; Champy was bought as Mom's "local errand car". When gas prices topped $3 a gallon, she became our primary transportation. The Accent's fuel economy, comfort and reliablity have won us over; our 15 MPG RAM is reserved for hauling, intown errands and "boys night out!" She has needed only regular maintenance in >15,000 miles of all-weather mountain travel.

Great car w/ good gas

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I owned this car for a little over 2 years about 30,000 miles. I traded in a WRX for this so it was quite different but I needed a better price and gas mileage. It was comfortable got around 30mpg and never had any issues!




Very good car

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

This is an absolutely wonderful small car. I use it to go to work everyday. Very very reliable. I am hitting around 35mpg on highway. I have never spent any money to fix anything (there weren't many) yet. Hyundai honors their warranty very well.




75,000 miles and no problems

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I just hit the 75,000 mile mark and haven't had a single problem. I quite literally just change the oil, haven't had to do a single thing except normal routine maintenance like new transmission fluid and timing belt. Highway mileage is great, I average about 33. City mileage is pretty bad, I average about 20. The cars look is pretty bland and the resale value is laughable. But if your thinking about buying this car and you can find it for under 45,000 miles and under 7 thousand bucks I highly recommend it.




Good car for the money

Vehicle: 2004 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I would recommend this car to anyone looking for cheap transportation. I have not had any trouble with this car since the day I bought it. I would like to see Hyundai add more insulation though because the ride can get a little noisy without the radio on.
