2012 Hyundai Accent SE 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6A)
Have an 09 Elantra Touring already, & bought a '12 Accent Hatch SE.
I'm blown away by the mileage.
Over 35 mixed use; easy to get well over 40 Hwy.
The accent is quieter & more refined than the (more expensive) Elantra Touring, w/comparable passenger room, but the cargo space is tighter, & a higher liftover.
I'm disturbed by the lack of spare tire; Dealer has promised to alert me when the "donut kits" arrive.
Also there is no ext temp display.
How much did they save by leaving THAT out, LOL?
Paid sticker, plus dealer installed mudflaps & iPod cable.
Other than that I'm completely satisfied.
Paid $18,020 including delivery,
Probably best in class MPG.
Quiet - little NVH.
Visibilty thru backight is obscured by the rear seat headrests, so I removed them.
no spare tire or exterior temp guage.
Coolant fill opening is inaccessable due to other engine parts - you need to add fluid to a cold engine through the radiator cap instead.
Did I say no spare tire?
Get a clue, hyundai - especially since you don't honor the TPMS warranty if I use tire sealant after a flat.
