2007 Hyundai Accent Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased it in Jan. 08, very pleased with the build quality, performance and gas mileage. I am tall, over 6 ft and have adequate leg, hip, head and shoulder room. However: the drivers seat is very uncomfortable. The side cushion on the left side of the seat pokes me in the ribs, making driving even a short distances uncomfortable. I have been told there is nothing wrong with the seat. The dealership is refusing to replace the seat. My wife finds the seat comfortable even on long rides. If you are tall check out the comfort level before purchasing this vehicle.


Best Features

price and warranty, gas mileage, large cabin size.


Worst Features

Make seating more comfortable for tall drivers. Cruise control should be standard.

2007 Hyundai Accent Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I bought mine in July 2007, and loved the ice blue color, I don't like the placement of the front left windshield pillar, it blocks the view sometimes, first tank of gas was 42 MPG, I drive 20 miles one way to work, currently i get 32-34 MPg but not by driving 75, I go 65 on the freeway, the cars has lots of zip, I had to get the basic model, and really miss the keyless entry and power door locks, so far it's been very dependable, I did notice a slight hesitation after backing up then press on the gas it waits just a sec, then goes, a new car shouldn't do this.prefer the seat back to be more adjustable ie lean further back


Best Features

The color (Ice Blue), acceleration getting on the freeway, Milage I was getting BEST 27, now I get 32-34, sometimes more depending on how slow I go LOL


Worst Features

more adjustments on the seat back, larger trunk in the 4 door model, more colors for exterior

2007 Hyundai Accent Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My husband and I purchased our Hyudai Accent GLS 4 door sedan right after the Labor Day Holiday. We have now had it for about six weeks and put about 1300 miles on it. Although we have not taken it out of the city yet, we have done both city driving and interstate driving. The Accent handles well is a bit slow does ride almost like a small car but not bad. It takes curves well and parks easily The sound system is nice and there are neat features which surprising are normally found on higher end cars like lighted mirrors, trunk, glove box tilt wheel. The only interior design we do not like is the placement of the cup holders. They should be more up front We are plaesed with our Accent


Best Features

Vanity mirrors the height adjustment on the drivers seat all the extra lights trunk, glove box mirror.


Worst Features

The placement of the drink cup holdrs. The shoud be up more to the front not at the side. The drivers armrest makes it difficault to place a cup while driving.

Review

When I finished College i was looking for a fun car that had good MPG. The Accent has it all. It a solid drive as well as comfortable one. The stereo works exceptionally well. The only thing that I would say that it has poor excelleration into fast traffic. The A/C works well as that was a big deciding point. The trunk is also a lot bigger than it looks from the exterior and you can fit a lot of stuff into it.


Best Features

I love the MPG, the driver seat with the 8 way seat, airbag everywhere.


Worst Features

Intermittent rear windscreen wiper would come in handy.

Review

First 4 tanks 37,38,37,39 MPG. That is mostly highway averaging 63-65 MPH. My daily commute is 100 miles. Compared to the older Toyota Tercel and Saab I was driving I am thrilled with the ride quality - smooth and quiet. I wanted a Yaris but could not find one with side curtain airbags. I am very happy with the way the car looks (I got in black). I thought I would get the hatchback but the visibilty was not great and since our other vehicle is an FJ Cruiser.......enough said. The tires and wheel covers with the base GLS trim are very nice, not the usual economy car bicycle tires. Under 13K, excellent mileage, standard side airbags (I have a 2 yr old) great warranty...easy decision


Best Features

ride, mileage, pretty good looking for an econolunchbox, nice interior even with the basic package...I don't have power windows or locks...


Worst Features

gas pedal, clutch and shifter feel a little disjointed from each other in regular driving or starting on a hill....have not driven it hard yet with 1500 miles total. I did not buy it to be a sports car.
