2009 Hyundai AccentLefty - Aspen Hill, MD12/04/2010
I'm a car enthusiast who's also practical by nature. I've had Porsches, Subaru WRX, Mazda Miata etc, but also Chevy Metro and similar low budget cars. I traded a 2007 MINI Cooper for the Hyundai Accent because I'm putting on a great deal of mileage during my daily urban commute. I'm sacrificing open road glee for utility, but that said, the Hyundai isn't that much of a sacrifice. I have the five speed so the pick-up isn't bad and it basically shifts itself so bumper to bumper traffic is not too painfull on the left leg. I had it on an open interstate just after I bought it and found it runs better past 70 mph then in the 60-70 range...you just have to remember to push on the gas pedal to keep it there. The 5 yr/60,000 mile warranty is what caught my eye. I got the car in Oct 2010 with just over 6,000 miles and I'll probably reach the 50,000 mark within three years. It comes with roadside assistance which is another plus. My silver hatchback with spoiler looks sharp for an economy car and it's very roomy inside, including head room. The rear seats fold over and flip down to the floor, but I haven't tried that feature yet. All in all, I made the right decision for my current circumstances. Oh, gas mileage has hovered around 33 mpg combined city/highway, but I'm an early shifter and watch traffic flow to save on gas. It's not a MINI Cooper but it was $11,000 less than the used 2009 MINI on the lot with similar mileage. Yes, you get what you pay for and for what I paid, this was a great choice.
My personal experience!
2013 Hyundai AccentAry Rodriguez - San Antonio, TX07/27/2015
I would recommend this car because first of all its small and compact, which allows me to fit anywhere and get around much quicker. It's fast and allows me to stop quickly when getting off the high way.
The windows are super tinted so you can hardly see inside my car. It gives me 37 MPG so that's a bonus.
Their are a few things I don't like. I don't like that when I let go of gas it slows down, what I mean by this is that it's as if the car stops its self in a way.
The side mirrors should have a better more wider design because there is a major blind spot on my drivers side. I would recommend those tiny little mirrors attached to the regular side mirrors.
And the wheel is a little stiff and hard to move. I'm not used to it.
High marks in every area.

I haven't had a car in years, so purchasing one as a big decision. Considering my budget and needs/wants, the list was narrowed down to Hyundai and a few other makes (all approved by my big brother!). Overall the Hyundai had it all: reliability, comfort, style, performance, safety, and a great price. This was an easy decision, and I am not disappointed.
