This is a good little car - emphasis on little. But it suits my needs just fine - weekly runs to the grocery store and occasionally short trips elsewhere. All in all, I am fully satisfied.
2009 Hyundai AccentKit - Charlotte, NC07/25/2012
I purchased the Accent at almost 30k miles. Almost immediately I had to change the thermostat, some gaskets and steel wheels (although the latter would speak more about the former owner's parking ability than anything). I have the two door hatchback. When the seats are down there is a decent amount of storage space. When the seats are up the trunk space is almost non existent. Seating in the back is cramped for adults, unless you're very short. Fortunately seating in the front is more roomy, although the (one) armrest is lower than needed and serves pretty much no purpose unless you have really long arms.
Aesthetically the car isn't much to write home about, but it isn't unappealing either. XM radio was installed in it, which I enjoy.
Performance wise the car drives pretty quietly, takes corners nicely and has a pretty good brake system. The pedals are not overly sensitive, which is nice. My biggest problem with this car is that there is no acceleration to speak of which makes getting on the highway, not to mention getting out of people's way, more of a pain. With a 1.7 litre engine you can't expect much giddy-up, though.
On the upside the car is good on gas.
All in all this would be a good starter car for a new driver or someone who doesn't drive a lot. I don't think I'd recommend it for anyone who spends a lot of time driving or who has older children they would be driving around.
I don't regret the purchase, as it's an upgrade from my last vehicle but when time comes to trade I won't miss it.
2009 Hyundai AccentCurly Sue - Nashville, TN05/08/2012
Nelson is my new Hyundai Accent. He is blue and sparkles in the sun. Nelson runs very smoothly and gets amazing gas milage. With my old car, I was filling up the gas tank once a week. I only fill Nelson up every other week and they have the same size tank. I love that it is a little car but still gives plenty of space on the inside. The heater heats up quickly, the a/c cools quickly, and the defroster works quickly as well. The dinging for things like seatbelt and otherwise is loud enuogh to hear without being overly obnoxious. I am very happy with my car choice!
