2005 Hyundai Accent GT 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It's not the fastest, or most impressive car. But it's fun to drive and the mileage is amazing!

2005 Hyundai Accent GT 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I commute 45 miles each way for work on country roads. This car has been comfortable and fun to drive for the first 3 years. Gets 40 mpg at ~50 mph ave speed w/o using air conditioning. 36 mpg highway w/o air; 34 mpg highway with air. Hauls canoe well. Plenty of power without heavy load: feels sluggish with 5 passengers and luggage. Also sluggish on big hills even with only 1 passenger. Like every Hyundai I've owned (3) very reliable and no repair costs.

2005 Hyundai Accent GT 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Fine little car. Came with the preferred power pkg with the power locks, windows, CD, fog lights a/c. Has 5 speed. Engine is smooth, fast within a narrow range of rpm, and gets good mileage (38 on the road, no AC, 70-80 MPH). I'm 6'2" and I have plenty of leg/head room. The GT comes with a sub-frame, stiffer struts, springs, stabilizer bars front and rear, and bigger tires, and handles really well. Remains flat and well-planted on the exit ramps and sweeps hitting the interstate. Stable and smooth at speed. Turns on a dime. Hatchback allows more storage than the trunk of my 92 Elantra (which had 250k on it). Reliable? Only have 2k miles on it, but it should be great with the 100k warranty


Best Features

Hatchback, flod down seats driver's armrest, pockets molded into doors, cup holders and compatments for junk storage are all over. White gauges are a nice clean blue at night, and the radio/cd player is exceptional at pulling in AM/FM stations. Clock at top of center console is nice, too.


Worst Features

Too far a reach back for the seat belt in front seats. No vanity mirror, passenger side visor. Could have used a couple of 12V plugs for chargers. Tires are very good in dry, but TERRIBLE in the rain. Awful! Brand new, the coolant was nasty-thick had to change out. Dealer offered nothing in return.
