The best part about this car is the features. It has xmradio, a six speaker system, and an AV jack. My car has the ABS but it is not standard on this model.
The car handles well for a small car even on wet roads. In windy conditions you can feel a difference but the car does not feel like it is out of control like some I have driven.
The interior is well designed with the cup holders in easy reach and several places to place items out of the way. The cloth seat are of good quality and give the interior an overall pleasant appearance. The downside is the hard plastic is a bit too easy to scratch.
When reading reviews of the car the biggest problem seemed to be noise. The engine can be a bit noisy at first but is very quiet once it warms up. The acceleration is very good for the small engine. By keeping a quality gas and routine maintenance the engine is performing very well and getting very good gas milage.

Well I'm enjoying my 2008 Hyundai Accent at this time. Just hit the gas pedal and say BYE-BYE to everyone behind me. LOL
I'm very happy with the size of the vehicle. Safe money on gas -- So, I truly made a good choice.
Thank you everyone!!!
Great little car

The Accent is exactly what I needed: it gets me where I want to go with plenty of room in the back for my groceries and whatnot. The gas mileage isn't as good as I'd hoped (about 23 in the city) but not too far off from what the sticker said.
