"Wow, love a car that doesn't break...anything...never had to go to the service center because nothing breaks! This is my second, and a third might be around the corner. Just finished a road trip and I got 36(!) mpg!(all freeway, but so what? 36!) Very dependable cars. Get one."
"I bought this car several years ago when my son totaled my brand new Honda Civic. This car was second-hand. I'll have to admit it has been a great little car. Nothing fancy, but I'm happy with a stereo, AC, and power windows. Very reliable. I would definitely recommend it."
Pros: "Great price, great gas mileage, fun to drive"
Cons: "came with a cassette player :("
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bought this car with only 3 miles on it back in 2000. Has been one of the most reliable cars that I have ever owned. This car has always been the one that I can guarantee would start every day. She shows her age now and needs a little work here and there, but as long as I take care of her she is very dependable and easy on the pocketbook when it comes to crazy gas prices."
"We love running around town in the Accent. We took out the back seat so that the radio-controlled airplanes fit in there and that worked out perfectly. My 6'4" husband loves to drive this car -- and hates our much larger car. People love to watch him fold up to fit into it. But he does fit comfortably in the driver's seat. It also has sufficient power to make it up hills fully loaded, but does have to kick into overdrive to do the really steep ones around here. We get around 27 mph in town. It's been too long since we took a road trip in it to remember the highway mileage."
"I've had this car since 2010 and I absolutely loved it! I bought it with about 40,000 miles on it. I changed out the stereo for a new one and ended up blowing my speakers(the new stereo had more power than the stock speakers could handle). It got wonderful gas milage, it drove well, and with how hot it can get in Florida(especially since my car was black) the A/C has never let me down. Ice cold air. I've driven this car from Tampa to New Orleans and back and it did amazing. The seats were not so comfortable, but I didn't really care. I did have one major issue with the engine. Around 80k, on a trip to Orlando, my engine just died. I was trying to accelerate but no matter how much I pressed on the pedal, it wouldn't go. So I replaced the engine(about $2,000) and it was running like new. I was planning on keeping that car until it fell apart completely, however, I rear-ended a truck and ended up totaling the car. It kept me super safe, the only injury I got was a "rug burn" from the air bag releasing. So I'm scrapping the car to help me buy another. But this car is a beautiful first car for any teen, it's reliable if you can take care of it."
