Review

Hello, I just felt impelled to write a review of this car. It is a Hyundai accent 1999, it is a little reliable rider I'’ve seen plenty of friends with BMW's and Fords all go down before my ride. I take regular maintenance serious and this car has not let me down. Currently has 150,000 plus miles and I keep track of mileage with highway and city driving I still average 35mpg its amazing; very efficient. It might not be the most attractive ride out there but makes up for it in swag points that' for sure. Plenty of room in the interior for hauling basics, and again its reliability is incredible.


Best Features

Its Reliability! . For example once, when I just bought the car, Its stick shift so I got all excited and pushed the peddle to the meddle; as I was approaching an off ramp I did not decelerate as I should have took that thing going 80mph, and lost control of my car. Next thing I know I am all over the off-road spinning until my ride flipped on me. (had my seatbelt on thank God) then it flipped back to its side. I was scared for my life and thought well what's next? I figured I ruined the car. Turn the ignition, turns right back on, and drive back on the road like nothing happened!!! That was like 40,000 miles ago people! No internal damage just the outside body I had to repair!

Review

I purchased this car in 2000 when it was one year old. I was looking for an economical, dependable car. This little gem has exceeded all of my expectations. I fit an unbelievable amount of stuff in the back....it is so much larger than it looks from the outside. My fuel bills are less than anyone that I know.....it drives great in snow....and the best part is that I have had to put so little $$$$ in this car!! At ten years old, it is still going strong. Best value I have ever had.


Best Features

Roomy cargo area, economical, reliable.


Worst Features

smoother ride.

Review

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.

Review

I bought a 2nd owner Accent with 54K on it. I needed to for college and moving around the city. I used to drive it for more than 20 miles a day for 7 months and never and I repeat never did it malfunction. About an year now and I did not have to visit the mechanic once, sparing the routing emission test. To my surprise, the engine cranked to a start after more than 45 days in the cold. The pickup is not great, nor does it have a power steering, but it is simply awesome for the price. Go get one in a decent condition, you will not regret it..


Best Features

Decent looks, unbeatable reliability, a good F/M player


Worst Features

Nothing for the price. But an A/C, a more powerful engine and an automatic transmission sure will help
