Used 1997 Hyundai Accent Hatchback

1997 Hyundai Accent

1997 Highlights

In the absence of truly ground-breaking improvement, Hyundai revises trim levels, adding GS hatchback and GL sedan midrange models.


  • Very inexpensive but not cheaply constructed, feels solid, offers peppy performance

'97 Hyundai Accent GT
EXTREMELY RELIABLE: vehicle has over 100K now. The only things I ever had to change were battery, thermostat, battery cables and windshield washer pump. Very good handling and performance for the price. Very roomy inside. Durability of paint was very poor though, and the ride could be more comfortable. Also rather noisy, but it is normal for the class.
very reliable
My 97 GS has been ultra reliable. With 80K I can get 38 MPG on the highway with an autonatic! This car feels as though it can easily go another 5 yrs. Other than oil and filter changes, tires, and front brakes...just pads, there has been no additional costs. I could easily afford a $350 car note but can't justify it when my paid off little car won't give me a reason. This car has baan as reliable as any Toyota I have owned. I just wish for 30 more HP!
Never again
Nothing but problems. This car really put a bad taste in my mouth toward all Hyundai vehicles. I would never buy another one.
