1999 Hyundai Accent GS 2dr Hatchback


I purchased this car for my brother, all it had wrong with it when we bought it was an exhaust leak. He didn't fix it because he's a butthead. but, this would appear to be a hyundai thing - if you're buying this car, check to make sure youre exhaust manifold and pipe were replaced, they rot out from the front onward! also check to make sure your alternator was replaced, and for the love of god, change the transmission fluid. This car has run into a lot of manufacturer problems starting with the schematics from hyundai listing the wrong wire colors. The overdrive switch on the shifter console has wires inside of it that break over time with the shifter moving. Be careful if you buy this car!

Best Features

It's loud, it makes people mad, and it's really inexpensive to repair. the AC works, and the heat is really good, those are pluses.

Worst Features

Move the airbag sensor a little bit to the left, my brother tapped someone and deployed the airbags. he barely even hit them. Rewrite wiring schematics, run thicker gauge wiring through the shifter console (auto trans) Make relay removal easier, allow easier airbag installation and removal.
