I bought my 2004 Accent (2 dr/manual)
in August at a dealer in CA as an
advertised special for $6880. After
adding in $1500 for dealer installed AC
plus tax, license, and fees, the total
came out to $9200. You get a lot of car
for this price. Runs great (13,000
miles in 6 months without any
problems). Average 35-40 MPG depending
on traffic and speed.
Did research before deciding to go with
Hyundai instead of a Civic or Echo.
Hyundai has really improved in quality
and reliability over the last few years
and I am happy with my purchase. Will
definitely consider Hyundai for next
purchase. Hope this is useful for
Manual is fun to drive. Lots of room
for stuff when rear seats folded down
for the hatchback. Side air curtains
standard. Adequate rear room for
average sized-adults on short trips (2-
3 hours). After that, you probably
want to stretch out. Warranty.
Base radio had no CD player. I hope
someone at Hyundai reads this also. AC
and CD player should be standard
equipment in all cars.
