It's A Good Car, No Bling Or Anything, Just A Good Car. Just Wish It Had Cruise. — It's a good ride, good gas milage, holds together, had to do zero work on the car in almost 70000 miles. Good but cheap. I have the GT so it handles pretty good, don't know about the base models. No frills, but works.

Pros

good gas mileage, roomy trunk, plenty of cup holders,

Cons

small, slow pick- up

A Tiny Gas Friendly Car — Its a pretty good car. I have never had any serious problems with it. It gets pretty good gas mileage and runs smoothly. It is quite small but works good for college kids or a single person. It is fun to drive, but I wish it had a tape deck for my ipod. Maybe the newer versions do?!

runs well and is built well

Cons

no speed!

My Ok Car — I like this car as a basic get around car, but it's got no speed, pick up nothing fun like that. Plus it's an automatic which I hate. If only it had 4 wheel drive then I could turn it into a rally car :D!

The Best Sedan In A Reasonable Price — it has a good acceleration and its comfartable and affordable ...and it has good handling too...and much more @6.2lacs ..it's a perfect car for a family of 4 or 5 and gives nice speed ...and i guess it drifts a bit...not more so take it

2005 Hyundai Accent Gls 1.6 (abs) Review — Performance - being a 1.6L mill, acceleration is impressive but not brilliant or over-the-top. Brakes could have had a lot more bite- they are too spongy. The handling is quite good but the steering lacks feel and fails to provide any kind of feedback whatsoever. Build quality - good build quality overall, but for a few issues with the starter circuit. Been through a couple of repairs to rectify this. Otherwise a trouble-free car to own. Appearance - conventional sedan look. A bit old fashioned now and too common on the roads to create any form of distinguishing factor. Cost of ownership - a bit heavy on the wallet. Gives me 10-11km to a litre of petrol in the city with A/C switched on. Highway fuel efficiency is somewhere around 15-16 kmpl with the A/C on. Maintenance costs and quality of Hyundai's servicing are satisfactory, but could be better. Fun factor - a fun car to drive around, got oodles of torque to give you good acceleration. Nicely spaced out gear ratios avoid having to switch gears often in city traffic.

Pros

It works and seems good on gas mileage.

Cons

Small and basic. No tilt wheel, even the hatchback door has a manual lock, no center console. The wheel covers are held on by the lug nuts.

Nothing Fancy, But Does The Job! — Manual windows and locks on this car aren't that much of a pain...because it's so small. I can reach the passenger lock and window roller from the drivers seat without leaning very much! The stock stereo was a cassette deck!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Nice Economical And A Great Handleing. — I love my little car. It handles well and is small enough to fit into any space. The air and heat work really well on it. They make them reasonably priced but they didn't seem to skimp on anything, Everything works on it as well as a higher priced car.

Very Good Car — Pertformance- good performance, little power but a decent torque It's a nice design but nothing extraordinary Don't need many $ investment, it doesn't breaks often if you give it a good manteinence It's really economic in gas and in the overall cost of the car It's a really fun car but depends on the actitude of the driver ;)
