"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 loved my little car!

Pros: "Gas milage, cute!"

Cons: "Engine died at 80k"

"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."

"Fun car to drive. Great gas mileage (37 mpg). Small, but good power and handling characteristics. Very reliable; never breaks down, and starts and runs dependably with mere regular maintenance (oil changes and new tires and battery at 90,000 miles)."

"The worst car I ever owned, period!!! the A/C stopped working and needs to be replaced, the Manual 5-speed Transmission needs to be replaced, It only has 2,3,4,5 gear and some times it has reverse and never first gear. The seats had fallen apart and are not durable or comfortable. The paint has faded very fast. The radio needed to be changed out. The sun visor needed to be replaced. The trip mileage indicator does not work. And this goes on and on and on. Nothing but a money pit."

"I have owned this car close to 2 years now. It was in great condition when I bought it. It had 97,000 miles on it I love to drive it. It rides smoothly. It was in excellent condition when I bought it. it is still in great shape. Nothing on it needs repairing and it get great gas mileage. It is a keeper, I won't be selling it any time soon.I am the second owner. The first owner kept it in over all great condition and I have been keeping it in great condition also. Good maintenance and good care will help it last another 100,000 miles."
