2011 Hyundai Accent Hatchback SE 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have a 2011 Hyundai accent SE 4 speed automatic with 61,000 KM, i love the car i like that it has a sunroof fog lights, 16 inch alloy wheels. The car is comfortable and good on gas , it is sporty and handles very nicely, i love the car, but their are a few things i am dissapointed in. I have had some suspension problems i have had to replace 2 struts in the back and now a sway bar link kit in the front is clunking, it is all covered under warranty so its not a big deal, i also don' like how the plastics on the interior of the car scratch so easily. But other then that i love the car it has never let me down its fun to drive and stylish. i recommend this car to buyers.


Best Features

sunroof, fog lights, bright blue dash lights, 16 inch alloy wheels, supportive seats, good on gas, handles like a dream, the styling of the front headlights and fog lights and rear brake lights.


Worst Features

more power would be better, more high end interior plastics would be nice, rear disk brakes instead of drum, more standard features like power windows and power locks. Also more airbags, and better crash test scores.

2011 Hyundai Accent Hatchback SE 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car in part to tow behind my motor home. The SE package is the trim to have. The car has all of the options that one would want in a subcompact. The blue lit dashboard is easy on the eyes at night, and the sport shifter makes for slick easy shifts. The top shelf stock stereo works great. Seating position is excellent, and power is on par with cars in this size and class. So far, I've been able to beat EPA highway figures, and the engine is not broken in yet. On that note, my primary gripe is the too short 5th gear. Revs need to be lower in 5th on the highway, as anything over 60 MPH sends the tach over 3,000 RPM.


Best Features

Blue backlit dash board. Black interior, SE package. Well optioned car for the price.


Worst Features

The manual transmission either needs a taller 5th gear on the highway, or a 6th gear added. This would both further boost highway fuel economy (that is why we buy these cars), and reduce interior noise on the highway.

A fun return to the basics.

2011 Hyundai Accent Hatchback GL 2dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Car is basically the same as a 2000 Honda civic hatchback, plus brand new. I got no air cond because I rarely use it, and I prefer the engine is freed up to get better mileage and have better acceleration because of no extra pulley stressing the engine. I also prefer to buy my own stereo. Why would I want to waste money throwing the stock stereo in the garbage? The car drives nice. The cost makes it extremely fun to drive. You don't worry about gas much, and you don't even worry about somebody stealing your car. 95% of new cars are overloaded with crap that isn't needed. An aftermarket stereo is all you need. Car is basically the new CRX people have wanted but Honda didn't make.


Best Features

Cheap cost, great mileage, manual windows/locks, zippy acceleration, trendy appearance, nice dashboard layout, trunk/back seat fold down to create tons of room, engine even looks well built.


Worst Features

Not much at all. I'd say all that would even be worth changing would be to use an engine that gets a few more miles per gallon yet gets a few more horsepower too. Maybe, improve the quality of the seats about 10%.
