286,000 Miles and Almost Like New
By warren_j on
2007 Hyundai Accent SE 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I am actually the second owner.
The first commuted 300 miles each day from PA to MD four 4 years (80K miles /year x 4 years).
I just drove from MD to Atlanta to pick up my daughter over the past three days.
From the look of the car, you would think I just went to the 7eleven.
I've owned 2 Fords, 2 Nissans, 1 Mitsubishi, 1 Toyota, 1 VW and 2 Audi's.
This is the coolest little car I've ever owned.
It gets about 36 miles per gallon average, turns on a dime, runs perfectly, is super smooth in traffic and up to 80 mph on the highway, and looks pretty good.
The 6 CD stereo sounds really good, although it skips when running without AC in summer heat.
In short, it's an amazing little car.
Mileage - 36 mpg actual.
Manual gear box is very solid.
6 CD Stereo
Headroom w/sun roof is good.
Wish fifth gear ratio was a little higher, mileage would probably be higher.
Wish there was cruise control.
