The review sounds too much like a Hyundai official trying to get people to buy the upscale Accent. My wife has a base 2008 Accent which delivered 45MPG going over a small mountain pass, has had no problems, squeaks, creaks or rattles in 50,000 miles. Beat that, 2012 tech enhanced Accent.... specially see how the new direct fuel injection lasts(200,000 miles?). Oh, yeah! One dealer in 2009 was selling two new Accents for $14,000. Now Hyundai wants $14,000 & much more for one Accent. On our Accent, we got the armrest, tach, 8-way adjustable driver seat, mudflaps & probably other items that are extra now. Hyundai caught up the other auto makers in quality years ago. Now, Hyundai is catching up with the other auto makers, in the money they take from buyers.Report it
I don't think going from MPI to GDI injection is going to have an affect on reliability. And the increase in price I think has more to do with the current exchange rates than anything to do with what they think they can charge. The car is great but its still in the new car stage. I will let you know how it goes down the line. I imagine with how I take care of my vehicles that the Accent will be perfectly fine after 50k miles. Why be so hateful towards a company that gave you a rock solid car?Report it
