"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."

"My Accent has been a great little car. It has held up well and gets good mileage on gas. For what I paid I have gotten my moneys worth. It's easy to handle and drive, comfortable enough and I like the looks of it. It has served me well. I would definitely buy another one."
