"I bought this car new back in '99.Over the years no major problems.It's been to Jersey and back and all over Florida. I've done ALL of the maintenance and repairs myself except for warranty work.It's super simple to work on (for me anyway).The dealer replaced 3 secondary o2 sensors(before they found a programming error in the computer and corrected it) and a faulty voltage regulator by 25,000 miles. Other than that only spark plugs,brakes,oil changes,coolant,trans lubricant,(it's a 5 speed)timing belt(s)and tires.After 120,000 miles I replaced the alternator,radiator,A/C compressor,coil,front axles and front struts(I had an alignment done). In other words normal stuff.The paint's a little faded but in Florida, that's to be expected. I'm on my 4th Hyundai since '89 and still own 3 of them."

"Great city car-35 mpg, easy maneuvering, good visibility, good cargo capacity (up to 2000 lb). OK on highway (been to 15 States and Canada). I bought it for function - and it has been great. Takes me from A to B economically and hatchback design enables me to haul lots of stuff. Newer models stress fashion over function and do not suit my need - so I still use the 1998 Accent."
