2012 Hyundai Accent GLS Automatic Experience
I recently purchased a 2012 Hyundai Accent sedan with the premium package and automatic transmission. My last car was a 2003 Honda Civic DX sedan with automatic transmission. An extremely reliable car and averaged about 28-32 mpg in the city. Just a note certain color Accent are made in Pusan Korea such as the Clearwater blue color on my car. There should be no difference in quality but very minor difference on parts such as Hankook tires versus an American brand. The car rides smoothly in Eco mode but a little slow to accelerate. My gas mileage was 27 mpg on first refuel but there is a 600 mile engine wear in period. Overall happy with the car and bought it at invoice price $16,900.

Due to economy had to sell my new 2011 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 coupe. Got $21,500 (best value from Orisman Hyundai). I needed cash for family, and a car, so I checked price on Elantra and Accent. After price of new 2012 Hyundai Accent with all features, taxes, fee's, etc... I made a few thousand. Bought my car Monday October 17th 2011 and so far it does not seem to be like the 'old' Hyundai's from the 1980's early 90's. Good safety features, excellent warranty, decent styling, and strong engine made me giving up my Honda a little less painful. I checked the Honda Civic's/Fit's, but the dealer would not give me as much for my Honda...and would not budge on his 2012 car price. Oh well...
I love my car
I've had my Accent for a little over three years now, and I've gone over 80,000 miles in her. She has not given me ONE problem with the engine. Even when I haven't taken her in for regular service in WAY too long or have been driving her long distances with a lot of weight, she is entirely reliable. Now, she's had trouble with other people hitting her, but even those repairs have been perfect and she's back up and running in no time and with no after effects. She also gets great gas mileage; on one 8-hour interstate driving trip recently I filled up before leaving and then only once more when I got close to my destination. My husband is 6'4" and even he fits comfortably in the car.
More About This Model

A few years ago, the Hyundai Accent was the scrappy underdog of the subcompact car class. It had the skills to compete, but it rarely placed high in the rankings. Hyundai addressed many of the Accent's shortcomings with the 2012 redesign. It now has more power, better fuel economy and looks better than ever.

As impressive as the redesign is, we feel that the 2012 Hyundai Accent GLS occupies the solid middle ground of the subcompact car class. On the high end, the Kia Rio (the Accent's corporate cousin) has better looks, a sportier suspension and more premium features like push-button start and navigation. The Nissan Versa belongs at the low end of the category, especially after the Accent handily trounced it in a comparison test. Buyers in this class might also consider the Honda Fit, which has more cargo space, or the less expensive Mazda 2.

Pricing for the 2012 Hyundai Accent GLS can quickly skyrocket when you realize that the starting MSRP of $12,545 brings you a stripped-down base model with a manual transmission, roll-up windows and no air-conditioning. Most people will opt for the automatic transmission, which adds $2,750 to the price, although the option package includes a number of other features such as power-operated windows and mirrors, air-conditioning and a CD player. And if you want your Accent to have some modern amenities, you'll probably want to get the $1,300 Premium package, which adds 16-inch wheels with 50-series tires, foglights, remote keyless entry, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, audio controls on the steering wheel and more.

This brings you to $16,625 before the destination fee. That said, the price of a well-equipped 2012 Hyundai Accent GLS is on par with its competitors and is still a relative bargain for the options you are getting. If you were to load up a slightly larger vehicle like a Honda Civic or Hyundai Elantra, you'd pay a few thousand dollars more for the same options.
