Is the Hyundai Accent more Fragile than the Elantra or Sonata?

Asked by Feb 28, 2015 at 03:30 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Accent GLS

Question type: General

About 4 or 5 months since I bought my Hyundai Accent in November of 2013, I began
to get curious every time I saw the Hyundai Logo on a car. I would say approximately
90% of the time, it is either an Elantra or a Sonata.Don't get me wrong because the
Accent is very dependable, is very fuel efficient, and is a comfortable drive as well.
However, after a matter of 16 months, it is "in shreds" and I am not that bad a driver.
Both Bottom headlights got "punctured in" and it scratches and dents as if it was
made out of "Reynolds Wrap". Is "This" the reason why Accents seem so scarce on
the road compared to Elantras and Sonatas?  Is the Accent "More Fragile" than the
other 2 models .At this point, I don't know what the "Smarter" course of action to take
is. Do I go to a Body shop and have it fixed up like it's brand new? Or, do I go back to
the Hyundai dealership and ask for a trade in? I really don't know what the better idea
is. I need an opinion. Thanks for reading.

I don't really believe it more "Fragile" in build and materials. It's just the low end Hyundai..sold new for $15,535 and the Sonata $19,920 and Elantra the higher end $22,400. The more expensive cars are a matter of features, for example the Sonata has a higher quality audio system, I didn't look at ever single feature on the sites but just couls tell the lists under of convenience and comfort are considerably shorter list of items. If you are wanting all these bells and whistles, trade it in, if you can afford the luxury and want it
