I got this car to replace the 2002 version of the same car. The premium package has a very nice sound system, and there are controls on the steering wheel for the radio and cruise control. The cloth seats feel good and the children have no trouble falling asleep in the backseats. Also, the keychain locks and unlocks the doors. There are lights on the mirrors in the visors, overhead "map lights" and the regular dome light. Counting the bottle holders in the doors, the cupholders in the front, and the cupholders in the backseat's armrest, there are 8 places to hold a drink. With this car, I feel like I had almost all of the features of more expensive cars for a much lower price. It's a very pleasing car. I feel like this car's engine has plenty of power for a car this size. I also like how it's not possible to accidentally leave the lights on and kill the battery. If I'm inside and I try to open the driver's door while it's locked, it will unlock. If I try to lock the doors while the keys are in the ignition, they will unlock. If I use the remote to unlock the doors and nobody gets in, they re-lock. This problem makes it hard to accidentally do things you don't want to do. My only major complaint is the cruise control is ridiculous. The way it's set up will cause the engine to use higher RPM, causing you to use more gas with cruise control on than with it off. This has to be the only car on the planet in which cruise control kills your gas mileage. If you're on a highway doing 70 MPH with cruise control, your engine will be over 3000 RPM the whole time. So 4 stars for performance because of the cruise control. But everything else seems good.
Not only does it have amazing gas mileage but although it may seem tiny from the outside, the inside is actually quite roomy and comfortable. I use this car for my daily commute as well as taxi'ing my 4 children (3 of which are teenagers) wherever their hearts desire. The 5 of us fit very comfortably and we love the Sat�lite Radio that comes in the car. The price was perfect and I don't regret a single thing about my Accent. I love it.
So far this car has been a dream, granted it is my first car. It's been low maintenance, a good ride, and great gas mileage. The biggest downside is the front bumper. This car unfortunately has zero clearance so even going over speed bumps are troublesome at times. I love to camp and do mountain venturing but this car makes that a chore.
