Review

This vehicle has been low maintenance...aside from typical wear and tear...brakes, tires, etc. Gets about 35 miles per gallon. Very reliable. Owned for 12 years

Review

Bought new. No problems for first 8 years then things started to go wrong. both door handles have broken off. I have loved the car for the most part. I am considering buying a 2008 accent. It is a great buy for the money, roomy, fun to drive, great gas mileage. What more does someone want! We must have liked our 96 if we are looking to buy a 2008, plus a warranty that is great. If you are thinking of buying a Hyundai it is a great buy and you won't be sorry!


Best Features

Roomy interior, roomy trunk, fun to drive.


Worst Features

I think they have already improved the door handles, quality has gone up since 96. They have made air conditioning std which it wasn't in 96, the warranty is better than 96 also, part of the reason we are considering buying a 2008

Review

Truth is the car uses a mitsubishi engine if people didnt know and its so easy to to customize, its not a car people normally assume is fast so when persons realize whoa thats a hyundai, its like yea fast isnt it. Its cheaper than alot of other cars to maintain and cheap to boost if your interested in speed.


Best Features

Handling, Acceleration, Suspension


Worst Features

Just improve the looks of the car tho its a hot car with the right person working on it.

Review

My little car that could. I have had
it for almost 8 years from new, drove
GREAT! for the first 5 years, had two
major repairs after that (when it rains
it pours) engine head, and computer
went out, but no small problems at all!
couldn't bring myself to trade in
because no other car could match it for
veratility, or gas mileage. I got 33MPG
on mixed driving. I will miss you!


Best Features

great internal space for apartment hopping when backseat is down, great gas mileage, responsive steering.


Worst Features

really sucky suspension after first year, paint on mirrors and trim suck, needs alittle more HP, and wider tires. Also could be a little larger. just a tad.
