I wonder why you're reporting a lower mpg than the other Accent owners. I am thinking about trading in my 12 year old Elantra. I am trying to justify the expense with my wife. With its 2.0 liter engine and 5 speed manual transmission, I measured my Elantra at 26.02 mpg recently. With a new Accent, I would upgrade from a timing belt to a timing chain (that's a special issue with me) and get to keep that wonderful 138 horsepower (same as the '01 Elantra) that compares well against all of its competition. Plus I would lose a couple hundred pounds in a nicer looking car. Maybe you're the only one being honest with your estimate. I think most people exaggerate what they get at the pump. It's just hard to justify a $13K purchase for 2 more mpg.Report it
Commenting on your Fuel Light and MPG Range issues, I have also experienced this with my 2013 Accent. I believe that they did this on purpose so that you fill up rather than run out. Most cars have about 1 to 2 gallon left when the empty light comes on, I think this is their version of an empty light.Report it
You can get a spare tire and rim from the dealer. Also, the jack from the dealer, because the jack doesn't come with the car either. They can be ordered from the parts dept. I just bought a new 2013 Hyundai 5 door Hatchback, and love it, but would feel more secure with a regular spare and rim, so thats why I ordered it. By the way,mine has an adjustable arm rest...Report it
