    Like It, Would Buy Hyundai Again — It is a really nice color, nice interior, good gas mileage, good radio. good looking. Does have a couple noises that it has. maintenance has been minimal, except check engine light came on and had to have fuel rails replaced.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: looks, price, gas mileage

    Cons: really nothing, I really like it

    An Inexpensive New Car... — I love my car for everyday use. I like my car, but I hope the day I'll have a Mazda 5 for the whole family. Hyundai Accent Hatchback is for single people. Otherwise, the manual transmission is fun to drive with.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The fact that I can drive it from point A to point B.

    Cons: The "sweek" sound from the backseat when I drive.

    Value For Money — Performance - The new Accent executive is just perfect! Great accelaration, power brakes and excellent handling with battery power saver, adjustable steering & smooth gear shift, Smooth ride. Build quality - Build quality is satisfactory but ddefinetly not the best in its class. Appearance - Beige interiors, leather steering wheel, tinted glasses, wooden finish dashboard panels & Its got body colored bumbers as default. Cost of ownership - excellent price, value for money along with a good average (cant match Honda but its good) but a hit high on maintainance. With CNG it costs Rs1.2/km. Fun Factor - Trade fuel efficiency with speed and enjoy the drive.

    Pros: Good engine, smooth ride & good appearance

    Cons: Not the latest technology!

    A Cheap Car...you Do Get What You Paid For Afterall — In the past Hyundai Accents have been ridiculed for being both unrewarding to drive along with being riddled with faults. Hyundai have since made serious progress every passing year since the 21st century. The Accent is no exception. To drive the Accent isn't really that interesting, the engine seems to be adequate for most driving applications. To accelerate quickly...it just won't because of the engine's power. What is terrible in the powertrain is the automatic transmission. I haven't encountered a transmission that was so slow to react to gear changes ie. D to R, the transmission seems to forget what it was going for a second. This means the transmission's quality is suspect here and I've already seen a 2000 km Accent go in for repairs regarding the transmission. The interior for the most part is plastic, not much to say since it is a very low priced car. I didn't like the hole in the rear passenger's cup holder(remove the pad and you'll see it), how Hyundai allowed this ugly feature to pass I don't know. Most Hyundai Accents come well equipped but you could get a very base car...which I think is a bad idea. Its quite light and quite fuel efficient, not as great as a Yaris or Fit but still very good. The car does have a few reliability issues with check engine lights and of course the bad automatic transmission. The Accent is the oldest of the lineup as of 2009 and does need a major interior update like the Sonata. Overall its a cheap car but it isn't exactly the best one.

    Pros: Inexpensive to buy, good fuel economy

    Cons: Stupid transmission, frequent check engine lights, disappointing compared to bigger Hyundais

    My Hyundi Accent Gs — I love the way it handles and all the little buttons and gadgets, but i don't like the fact that nothing on it is electric, and there is no cruse control. Gas mileage is great. It is a reddish maroon color with grey interior. It is in the shop right now though because I slid into a ditch with it.

    Pros: It's a great car.

    Cons: It's in the shop.

    Accent Rocks !!!!! (verna) — the acceleration of the is pretty good for a diesel engine , the weight of the car is not evenly distributed ,front of the car has more weight. you ll feel the power of the car when you are in a highway mileage is good and it is economical , considering the gas price :-)

    Pros: power , economy

    Cons: feel light in high speeds

    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.

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

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

    Most Fun In A Pint Sized Package! — Ok to be honest this car is the best that I have ever owned. It has convinient black-hole seating. That it is it is larger than a standard medium sized American car. It has a great trans, clutch, power, and 42 MPG Highway. GREAT CAR IF YOU ASK ME! Oh, and it can hold three people and exercise equipment comfortably....Ask Beau for details...

    Pros: Good looks, stops on a dime, turns on the same dime, comfy, red.

    Cons: Nothing at this time....  Ok the windows fog over very easily and I have asked others that on Accents and they say the same thing...
