1998 Hyundai Accent GL 4dr Sedan


The Accent was my first car. It has been through tons of abuses. It recently started acting up, so we took it into the dealer to find that the spark plug wires had been wrong and the transmission fluid was wrong for over a year. The car had held up pretty well for quite sometime even with all this crap wrong with it. It's pretty impressive actually. It's a small car, but it delivers plenty of power for the fuel economy. I have no problems going over 100mph in this rig. It's one of the most fun cars I've ever driven. I just hope to god my transmission issues will get fixed.

Best Features

The inside is pretty cozy. It's got a decent amount of features, including overdrive and econ shifting. It's fun on the interestate to have a tiny car that can haul that much. It's cheap to drive also.

Worst Features

Uuhhhm... The Accent's tires are definitely a little too puny, I'd say. The traction isn't really bad, but I think they should've been a little bigger.
