Great car, but a few niggles
By dirtbag on


2012 Hyundai Accent SE 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 6A)


I got the SE hatch automatic. Nice car. Fun to drive. Quiet and comfortable. Looks good. Averages 35 mpg. I'm very pleased, overall!

The cruise control is useless on uphill grades. The door armrests are hard plastic and uncomfortable. Handling around curves is great but it doesn't track well in a straight line on the freeway, requiring continual corrections. No spare tire, even though there is a space designed for one...cheapskates.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Quiet.

Worst Features

Padded door arm rests. Spare tire. Fold-flat rear seats. Outside thermometer. More cubbyholes for storage.

Jan 9 - I test drove tonight on both straight and curvy roads, no noticeable problem in steering, so hopefully fixed by now

It sounds like the car needs an alignment.

My Accent does the same thing with regards to tracking. I imagine it's an issue with the electronic steering rather than misalignment.
