Fun To Drive — this is a nice little car with good handling, the quaility is ok, looks are sharp, the price I paid for the car is adequate and the fun factor is the color!!! I would reccommend this car for single people. . . it is a little small

Pros

MPG is great, lots of accessories are available through dealer,

Cons

small engine, could be lowered about an inch for better appearance

45

2008 Hyundai Accent — This is a really great car for the price. With the highest horsepower and torque in it's class (110 HP/ 106 TQ) and a low curb weight, this car will supprise you in performance. Build quailty is good and on par with Hyundai's other veichles. Personally, I think it is the best looking hatchback in the class and the only one offered as a 3 door. MPG is great rating 27/33 for a manual transmission and 26/35 for an automatic. With the SE's sport tuned suspension, the car is pretty fun in the twisties.

Good Economy And Value For The Money — Could do with a little more HP but otherwise it's very cheap to run as well as very low maint. costs. fit and finish is as good if not better than the rest on to days market in it's class.

Pros

efficient if only using the front seats

Cons

not good quality and no horsepower

35

It Is An Economy Car That Has Better Alternatives — Car has no power and is very small. The quality is ok but could definitely be better. The appearance is good from the side and at angles but head on and from the back it looks buggish. it is really cheap though. It is fun through turns but just driving it around town is not very fun.

MPG

Cons

Cheap built.

No Comment — Umm, not really worth the money. it's cute and all, but its performance sux, it's very cheap looking and feeling on the inside, though I am a fan of the MPG! It would be funner to drive if it had more power.

If you love handling

Cons

notchy gear shifts

Cheap And Cheerful Luxury Sedan — Good pickup, great handling, high quality ABS. Low maintenance costs, excellent AC. with a wee bit of aesthetic work the looks of a rally sports car achievable. Fun factor - I have put in a 2-DIN Video screen Audi HUD with external amplifier and 6 speakers. With full tint, this is a great comfortable cruiser.

Great Little Car For The Money. — I have had no problems with this car at all, it gets good mileage, has enough power, you can fold the seats down and haul big stuff in it thanks to the hatchback, it rides good, I like it. All in all I don't think you can get a better small car for the money, until Chevrolet starts making cobalt hatchbacks.
