By far the most reliable, least expensive car to operate I have ever owned. Bought for $3200 7 yrs ago.

Bought used, don't do that! 65K warranty used for transmission at 32K. Out of warranty transmission replaced at 82K. Owned 3 years with 6 breakdowns requiring towing. I have never had this much trouble with any other car. Rapid loss of value. Intermittent poor shifting even after dealer service. I can't recommend this car in any way.

I honestly don't understand all these reviews. I guess their previous owners didn't take care of their little Hyundai because my car runs great and is in great shape. The transmission and engine runs great. I don't understand the comments on the handling. The brakes could be better, but they have no problem. People need to realize that Hyundai was still not a very large company when the 2000-2004 Accents came out. And the Accent was Hyundai's least expensive car. The interior scratches easily and the paint gets dings and scratches easily as well. But this was meant to be a realible INEXPENSIVE car for people that want a decent car and have money to put gas in it too. =]

At 69,000 miles, the transmission broke. They wouldn't pay for it, because, changing the fluid twice was not enough. Since I didn't also have it flushed, they won't pay for the repair! AAMCO repaired it for $2600 and assured me it had nothing to do with flushing. It was a part that went bad and he see it all the time because it's the kind of transmission they use. Also,I had the dealer check my brakes a couple of time and they said they're ok. Then a few months later tell me the whole cylinders were broke and they won't pay for it because it's neglect!! Hyundai does not honor their warranty! I'll never buy a Hyundai again!

Dealers are rip-offs

Previously, I wrote my review about the transmission braking at 69,000 miles and the dealer said they won't honor the warranty because the transmission wasn't flushed. I went to AAMC for a replacement and paid $2800. I wrote a letter to Hyundai Corp. telling them what happened. I received a call from the corp. office. After I sent all the documentation to prove I still owned the car and the receipt from AAMCO, I received a check for the full amount I paid for the transmission. I found that it's not the Hyundai Manufacturer, it's the DEALER that rips people off. If you have any problems, go directly to the manufacter not the dealer!
