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


I have driven my 2012 Accent for more than
4,000 miles and it is still fun to drive.
There is one feature, however, that is problematic an annoying:
The LCD display has virtually no contrast, i.e. it is medium blue on light blue.
I find it difficult to read under any lighting conditions and brightness cannot be controlled.
At night, it glows like a spot-light.
During the day, it's just fuzzy.
And no, I do NOT have any vision issues.

I hope that Hyundai fixes this because the Accent is otherwise a good value (so far).

Best Features

I like the ability to switch to manual shifting. Also, I ordered mud guards and found them to be very easy to install. Good engineering.

Worst Features

Fix the LCD display. Please! Having an "always on" power outlet would be nice.
