First the bad.
The hatchback latch spring gets stuck so after pulling it to open the rear door, I have to manually place the latch/handle back in place.
I REALLY wish there had been cruise control on the Accent.
This car has been driven an average 300 miles a day and it has been awesome.
Outer paint looks new, engine runs great.
Inner trim still looks great (but showing scratches and some fraying on the seats).
Just took it to the dealer for a checkup, engine light on issue and an oil change ... $250 total bill.
I'll drive it to Florida next week.
Averaging 36-37 mpg with the 5 speed, compare that to my 31 mpg avg driving a 2007 Versa 6 speed.
Fuel economy, 6 CD changer, solid feel, easy to drive
