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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sporty — Performance: Acceleration feels semi-sporty even if it is pretty slow. The brakes work excellent and the handling is very, very good! A really fun car to drive! Appearance: This is the newest generation of the Hyundai Accent. Latest design for my 3dr is a hatchback. Looks sporty, curvy, and doesn't appear "cheap" Build Quality: Metal Doors, not cheap plastic, Excellent electronic controls, motor is in good condition (been driving on it for 20k miles with a good maintenance and haven't had to replace much at all.) Great Build quality! Cost of Ownership: Repairs are non-existent for the most part other than the typical maintenance from the book. I have a lead foot and get close to advertised MPG in stop and go traffic and I get over what is advertised on the highway. 22 city, 34 hwy is what I usually average. Fun Factor: Car is just a BLAST to drive! Would actually recommend it as an autocross car, so long as you upgrade the stock tires. This car sticks to the road very well and the brakes are superb for this class. Love this car! Keep in mind this is coming from someone who has driven everything from a beater saturn to a mustang gt with some minor modifications, and up to a race prepped 240sx.

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.
