"The interior of this car fell apart and could not be repaired. The paint finish became spotty, and the repairs mounted as the years went by."

"Really cheap in parts,lasts very long,ive had like 10 of these in the past,never get bored of them,my advice is to buy a 5 speed manual one because automatic transmissions on them arent 100% reliable,but everything else is cute and perfect for every day driving."

"Bought my 96 Accent with 63k on it in 05 for $2000. Now have 226k on it. Cheapest running car I have ever owned. I drive 40 miles each way for work every day and it has never let me down. The only major repairs I have done was some suspension work recently. 1 battery, 2 sets of front brakes, 1 set of rear shoes, 1 set of plugs and wires. Still has the original starter, alternator, clutch and water pump. I have, however, replaced the driver's interior door handle a few times. All around a very durable little car."

"My sister bought this car new and has passed it down to me. she has never had any major repairs done on it. the only major repair was that the charcoal canister went out and ended up being a $500+ repair after labor and parts and such. the gas mileage has been 35-46 mpgs depending on where i drive. this car is a great car if you want reliability. the insurance is cheap gas is cheap. its semi comfortable on long drives."

"I have owned the 1997 GL model for almost three years. Gets good gas mileage (32 mpg combined) and has been reliable. Small and easy to drive even in snow and ice. Inside and outside door handles are cheap plastic and will break but are relatively easy to replace. Comparable to a Dodge Neon...nothing fancy but will get you to point a to point b."

"this car is so reliable! i have had it for 2.5 years and i love it! its adorable and small in size, so its super easy to squeeze into small parking spots. the turning radius is AWESOME! you almost never have to do a 2-point turn around. it may seem small from the outside, and having only 2 doors usually is an inconvenience, but as soon as you sit inside, you see that it is actually REALLY comfy and spacious. driving this car is a breeze, it is not too sensitive nor too tough on the pedals. it gets awesome gas mileage and has about a 9 gallon tank, so long commutes won't kill your wallet. the hatchback trunk is much larger than a regular- sized car's trunk. you can also pull the back seats forward, pull the shelf off that rests in the back, and have a trunk big enough to carry a beach cruiser bike or two! the only inconvenient thing I found about this car is that it has only two cup holders, and they are very small (only fitting small cups or regular sized cans). overall this is a GREAT car!"
