    My First Financed Car — wonderful car low operating cost and low fuel cost as it was good on fuel. If you take good care of it, it could run nearly indefinitely. we bought it before we had any children and it served us for three years until we out grew it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it was good on gas, could move people if you needed to, and didn't cost very much to opperate

    Cons: small, too small for a growing family and with three kids in car seats...and a little under powered when you got five adults in it

    Compact, Yet Efficient — This car met most of my needs and was overall a good car. Gas mileage was good, but one might expect better from a car its size. Speaking of size, it lacks much. Being a tall and slighty plump man, I needed more leg room and space from my passenger than this car allowed. The features of this car, although, were very nice even on the base model. A professional-sounding sound system with radio, CD player, and auxillary port and user-friendly controls were examples of this. The performance was dencent. The acceleration was quite responsive, yet the brakes sometimes scared me. It was decent in the corners, not very dramatic. Again, overall, a good, cheap, little car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good gas mileage, excellent sound system, very manuverable

    Cons: Very small, not built for the tall or plump,

    Good For Commuting From Work To Home. — Not very big, I get little car syndrone all the time. No cruise control which is hassle since I drive on the highway a lot. I like being close to the dealer and the service department has been great at location in Cool Springs.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good on gas mileage.

    Cons: Does not have cruise control and is hard to add it if needed.

    I'll Never Buy Another... — Performance is a joke. It is slow. Build quality is not that great. I'll never buy another one. Appearance is cool. I like the way it looks. Cost of ownership is up there because the build quality sucks. It can be fun to drive in the city. Highway... not so much.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: To save money on gas.

    Cons: Build quality.

    2009 Accent Review — Why spend $30000 on a car that doesn't do everything you want? My Accent GL has all I need and then some. The cheapest car available in Canada and it has enough power to keep up with all traffic conditions and will still do almost 50 mpg! Everything about it is sound, the Koreans know their stuff. Handling is good at lower speeds but try tossing it in a corner and you really feel it trying to roll. If you wait 'till the end the car buying season, you can get a year old car with no mileage but for a great deal and a new car warranty. No cold weather has beaten the battery yet, but we're still early into the season.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fuel economy, acceleration for the size, roominess

    Cons: Higher speed cornering, trying to use that 5th seat belt

    Hyundai New Accent, It's A Really New Accent On Egyptian Roads — Its performance is wonderfull, it's very stable as I was on 200 Km/H, Acceleration is doing well against any car, its brakes is a good rescuer saved me from death frequently, Handling is cool as it's saloon is wide & comfortable, Build quality is well, it doesn't need any repairs untill this moment 15,000 KM, No squeaks/rattles unless there's sand or argil on the road :P It's Appearance is very attractive with it's cute back & it's front dangerous shape, interior in beige color that decrease the interior heat results from sun, Cost of ownership is suitable & something economical, Fuel / KM = 8 Liter / 100 KM Maintenance is very expenseve as Ghabour (Hyundai Agent in Egypt) made a hight labor cost rate. It's a very fun to drive but not where's a traffic jam.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Buy it, Don't buy Aveo

    Cons: No reason to avoid it.

    Noisy.....compared To What? — Did they say this car "struggles noisily" on the freeway? Really? Everyone that has ridden in my new Accent has been surprised by how eager and quiet it is at freeway speeds. It's a four-banger economy car, and like all others, it will have more engine noise than a high-end sedan. The tested cabin noise, in decibels, is no higher than a Mazda 3 or Hyundai Elantra.....check for yourself. No one complains much about those cars. UPDATE: As I approach the three year mark, I am still very impressed with this little car. The tire-pressure indicator comes on every several months, when the pressure is low, but I've come to expect that. I add some air, and it goes right off. There are still no rattles, and no service issues of any kind. It has been the most solid and reliable car I have ever owned. This car was a good decision, and it is holding value quite well too....according to Kelley Bluebook. UPDATe: I am approaching the 5 year mark ( three months away) and I still love this little car. No rattles, no repairs. I have a stick-shift, and getting the car into reverse is tricky when the car is cold in the morning...can take me a few tries for some reason. When the car is warmed up, no problem. I may be getting another vehicle in 2014, but I doubt I will trade my Accent in, because I am too fond of it and its been very solid.

    Pros: The SE hatch, with alloy rims and foglamps, is a head-turner.    Much spunkier than I was told it would be, and quieter than reviewers claimed.

    Cons: I would like Hyundai to add power folding mirrors and a USB port.   I has regular power mirrors and an aux jack already.
