Pros

Cheap to run and insure, has loads of load-in space for carrying stuff

Cons

Wasn't first in the queue when performance and looks were handed out

Cheap Day-to-day Runner — Not the best car I have ever owned, but it gets me from A to B. I have only bought this car due to the fact that petrol prices are high and I need a car that is frugal and doesn't cost much to run. This ticks both of them boxes, so I'm happy! It is currently giving me close to 40 mpg combined, which twinned with low emissions puts it in a low group for tax. It's cheap to insure too! I also use this car to carry amps, speakers, equipment for me and my band, and there is a lot of boot space, and even more if you fold down the seats!! I also carry camping gear, so I am very pleased with it's capacity in that respect. Overall I would recommend this car to anyone who wants a car that is cheap to run and can carry large loads, who doesn't mind losing out on performance and looks. If performance and looks are your thing, then this isn't your cup of tea at all!

Huh? — It gets great gas mileage, but it's not my favorite of my cars. My favorite car is my 1973 Plymouth Duster. Its gets 12mpg on a 14gallon tank. haha. yeah, thats why i drive my accent. My accent is sleek and all i have to do is take out my governor and i think it could be ready to race after a few mods. hahaha.

lots of room, good gas mileage

Cons

mostly just that AutoMax sucks - i'd never buy a car from them again

Not A Bad Car — My car has lots of room, and lots of cool features I've never seen in other cars. You can leave the headlights on and they auto turn off. Car can be a little sluggish on acceleration but has lots of low-end torque. I've been able to replace headlights and install a stereo system easily and without a user manual. Room wise, I go to college and I can fit my entire drumset, a Katy, a dog, and a weeks worth of clothes in the car and still be able to drive comfortably. The only thing I would change is to have a hatchback. AutoMax sucks though. Don't buy cars there.

Nice Ride — Good little car that gets good gas mileage - between 27 and 35 mpg - and has decent handling. Hasn't had to have many repairs over the years and is still in good condition. I drove it for a few months back when it was brand new, handles good in the snow.

Good But Not Best! — Well the 2004 model has been redesigned totally compared to the 2003 and before... New frame, body and motor. The overall is getting better and shuts up the critics saying this is a crappy car. Of course this is still an accent, but the GL edition is a better car than ever! Mine is a 2004 with 182k and still runnng like a young gun! The gas mileage is pretty good! over 500 kilimeters with one fill up. Finally, with a little more HP uder the hood, It would be a real thrill to drive!

Ehh, It Was My First Car. Deffinatly Helped Me Make The Decision To Not Get Another Hyundai. — Um, ya. It's a hyundai, before they switched to being primarily USA parts. Acceleration is Horrible, especially when the AC is on. The braking is fine and handling is great. As for build, it does okay. There is a shake that I cant seem to fix. The interior is a little bland, I have sports cloth and that just means you get charcoal coloring and confetti thrown on it. Gas mileage, I get 300miles to the tank...and it costs around 28 dollars to fill it. Maintenance, I was fine until I hit 50,000 miles. Things just seem to go wrong. This car has also been in a couple of accidents. Held up well however the airbags never deployed. Its a fun FIRST car to drive.
