Good Deals Sometimes Aren't

...The car has also developed significant problems. Once the odometer hit about 63,000 miles (it now has roughly 70,000) the quality of the car began to go downhill rapidly. The engine is even noisier and the idle rougher, it has trouble accelerating, and has a problem trying to stall in traffic. The suspension is trying to go out and at times the car will unaccountably begin shaking to the point where it is hard to control the vehicle. The radiatior has also began leaking. Overall: The car seemed like a good value when I bought it. It was inexpensive and had a good warranty. It also looks very...

I love my 2003 Accent

..."It's not fancy but very economical and low-maintenance. It's very cute and zippy. I might have to sell for personal reasons. I was planning to keep it for 200K mi. or for the rest of my life..."...

dependable commuter

...Pros: I bought mine new, and put about 60k miles on it before it was totalled a year ago.
It was very dependable and zippy enough for highway merging, and with chains, I had no problems going over the pass in winter to visit my folks.
I highly recommend this car for anyone who just needs a commuter/road trip car.
ps. I went camping with my boyfriend, and we put down the back, put in our cooler, tent, food, foam mattress, with my dog sitting on top!
lots of space for such a little car! Cons: The basic model doesn't have much extra to it. Overall: I loved it, and would buy a...

Not worth it.

...I have had this car for 3 years. Its a 2002 Hyundai Accent GSI. I have had the clutch and transmision replaced already. The car rattles so bad after awhile, especially the hatch. The indiglo dash lights are dead. The check engine light likes to come on often. I have serviced this car according to the book that came with it btw. It dents really easily. The interior scratches at the slightest touch. The resale value is terrible. I will never buy another Hyundai again. Overall: BAD...

High-quality Reliable City Car
Source: MSN Autos

...It's fairly easy to work on. Components under the hood are generally readily accessible, and parts seem reasonable. Fold-down rear seats upgrade the utility of this car, making it able to move long boxes, furniture, and whatnot. Finally, the paint overall has kept its color and shine, despite being in the hot desert sun almost its entire life. Cons: The transmission had to be replaced around 85,000 miles or so (but it was under warranty at the time); keep an eye on it. The brakes have needed service and adjustment almost annually for the past three years of so (now at 124,000+ miles). The...

Most car for the money

..."I was so happy with the 2003 because the style of previous years was uninspiring to say the least.
It's got a tried and true powertrain and is extremly reliable and safe.
It handles pretty well for the bargain (if you take the overdrive off, the car really moves). This was my first new car and I made a great choice!"...

Zippy car

...The trunk space on this car is incredible! Really you can adjust the seats which are 60/40 split to allow for more trunk space. I have put a huge 72 gal fishtank, closet doors and them some and been able to close the trunk (of course not all at once). The interior space is small but comfy, it can fit 4 adults perfectly. Drivers seat could use more cushion, but I added my own for lumbar support. In the almost 6 yrs that I have had this car I have only had to replace the tires and battery. The battery was replaced while under warranty free of charge and hyundai roadside assitance came out to...

great little car

...Had a problem with the air bag when I bought it 5 years ago, the company that made it had'nt connected it. My dealership caught the problem and imediatly fixed it of course at no cost to me. Overall: I have now owned my Hyundai for 5 years. It has been a good vehicle for me. I like the car alot so far, but I only have 45,000 miles on it. It could handle a little better in the rain (I have newer tires). I have taken it on many trips out of state and it has done great. It had two accidents(not my fault) rear ended and then side swiped by a semi.(oviously I lived through it). It was repaired by...

Great little car!

...Pros: Gas, 4 doors, fits anywhere, price Cons: None Overall: I have 3 kids that I drive around and this car is amazing.
Because it does not have a passenger air bag my oldest sits in the front.
For $23 a week on gas it is amazing!! Compared to our SUV at $80 a week
!!! 5 spd is very zippy. Good trunk space as well!!
I had an old excel as my first car in 1986 and trust me Hyundai has come a very long way!!. I hope this car makes it for me to pass it along to the kids in a couple of years!!...

Nice Little Car

...Pros: Gas mileage, price, warranty...i parked my jeep wrangler and bought my Accent for gas mileage.
Noise is no problem..if you can handle the noise in the jeep then everything else is quiet. Cons: none Overall: a good car for the 2 of us to carpool in...
