Accent Is Solid but MPGs stink!

2006 Hyundai Accent GLS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


I bought my Accent after beginning to have trouble with my previous car, a VW Jetta Turbo. Notice my ratings above, they are completely honest. I have been very disappointed with the gas mileage for a car this size and with this little performance. My fuel economy averages in the mid-20s overall. I did exceed 30 mpg on a couple of long road trips, but only reached 33 mpg. Performance is pitiful if not down right dangerous. Its difficult to enter a crowded Intrste Hwy w/o getting pummeled. Now here's the good stuff. Haven't had a single hiccup with this car. The reliability has been perfect for 2 yrs/53K even in tough, city driving. The design and build have far exceeded my expectations.

Best Features

Smooth quiet ride (for a small, compact and cheap car) Descent trunk space for a sub-compact.

Worst Features

MORE HP!!! And MORE HP with improved gas mileage (see 2006 Honda Civic).
