2003 Hyundai Accent 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My wife and I purchased a 2003 Hyundai Accent base 2 dr. This car is a stripper. It was exactly what we wanted. 2 dr 5 speed. It has a radio and AC. Thats it. This car gets excellent fuel economy. We drive in rual Iowa. This car does well in the snow. We average over 20k miles a year because of our 50+ mile commute. The thing that this car lacks is power at low rpms. Rev it up and it has lots of pep. Hyundai makes use of all the available space and can seat 4 adults in reasonable comfort. The 5 speed makes this car a fun drive. This is my first foreign car and I am impressed with the build quality and the ease of maintaining it. My other car is a full size 89 Dodge RamCharger 4x4.


Best Features

Great fuel milage. Uses space wisely. 2 dr 5 speed. Just plain. But man is it fun to drive.


Worst Features

The 14 inch wheels could be 15 inch. The fuel tank could be larger. A tachometer would be nice on the base model.

This car is great for the price!! Been driving it for 2 years now, and it drives like a champ. I love the stereo system! But i wish it had cruise control. It also looks pretty good. My personal preference is White color with cream interior! Awesome!

6-speaker stereo system! Very clear! Folding backseats!

Review

Ex wife took my cadillac so I bought this small car. I did not think I would be happy but to my surprise I really like it. It has been trouble free unlike my cadillac, It has enough power and the comfort is surprising for a small car. Gas milage has been 36.5 overall which is better than the sticker. It has been a great value for the money.


Best Features

It does everything good enough, maybe not outstanding but good enough I cant complain. Looks ok too.


Worst Features

At the time I got this cruse control was not availabe, I would like cruse.

Review

I love this car. It's dependable, it gets great gas mileage. For a little car it has some pick up and go, more so than I thought it would. My only complaint is the small tires. My next car will be a Hyundai


Best Features

Get up and go.


Worst Features

Bigger tires.

Review

I purchased the Hyundai in 03. It was nice looking, and I loved that it had great fuel economy. I shopped for price, value and a car to take me into retirement without the headaches of expensive repairs. It has been almost 2 years now and I finally acknowledged to myself that I had a great deal. I wish I could have waited for 04 but time doesn't wait. My best friend bought the Sonata and we are both pleased. So much so that we are driving almost 7000 miles this Spring.


Best Features

Power Steering, Latches in car for trunk, gas cover, air bags, and general looks. It is a nice car for anybody young or old, working or not. It performs on command.


Worst Features

Maybe softer seats would be nice.
