"I've been buying Hyundai vehicles since 1992, mostly the Accent. I drive 80 miles a day to and from work and this particular one is the best yet. I've hit 4 deer with it and have yet to break a headlight, traveled through 2 feet of snow for 20 miles (November Lake Effect south of Buffalo NY 2014)and nothing has stopped this little vehicle. I've followed all maintenance (more or less) and the car just keeps going. Shows it's age and the toll of 121,00 miles with rust starting to appear, but it is expected with the brutal winters here in Western New York. I have passed SUVs stuck in snow and had the opportunity to pull a Ford Taurus out of a snow bank. Given the 5 speed manual and snow tires all around it is all but unstoppable. Best vehicle for the money!"

"The car was very dependable, handled well, good gas mileage, few repairs ever needed, and actually had quite a bit of pep going up hills and accelerating. The car's design was rather generic, and because I'm a smaller person, I was comfortable driving it. If I had other people in the car that were taller or larger than I, they were not as comfortable."

"I got my Accent when I just graduated high school. It was a 2007, and I got it in 2008. I loved my Accent because for a fresh new college student, gas was very affordable and the car was very easy to use and drive. I could take it from my city to another 2 1/2 hours away and only fill up once I got there. It was perfect for parking that, in most cities, are so small average cars now can't fit, but mine can fit anywhere. Parallel parking couldn't be made any easier. It's pastel lime green color always made it easy for me to find in a crowd. The hatch was awesome for just the amount of space needed for a young adult who just wants to have anything from gym stuff, to groceries, to bags for a weekend away. I love this car, but I realized being almost 26 now, and my job requiring me to have more space for passengers for trips, that I need to part ways with my little jelly bean car and get a 4 door styled car. Hyundai 's are amazing vehicles and last forever if you take good care of them. I'm definitely sticking with this brand of car always."

Pros: "Reliable, lots of room for a hatchback, city mpg"

Cons: "Manual trans - less mpg on interstate"

"I have used this car as a commuter for 4 years. Great commuter car, easy to get around in, decent acceleration for the engine size, and very reliable. I have also hauled amazing amounts of items in this vehicle. It is deceiving because it looks so small, but it is a great vehicle for hauling small and medium sized loads. I have hauled a kitchen table and 6 chairs at once, various amounts and sizes of lumber, tools/power washer/20 gal air compressor, and the list goes on and on. I paid $11,000 new for this car and don't regret it a bit. The only con I have is that I wished I had bought one with an automatic transmission. The manual doesn't have the 6th overdrive gear and actually gets less gas mileage on the interstate than around town, but the worst gas mileage I have ever recorded has been 29 mpg. 32 to 36 mpg around town."

"for what the car offers it gets great mileage.there's plenty of room for two people I'm told it's a bit snug in back.Good power pickup for it's size,and great maneuverability& traction on clear roads. I'm not a fan of ABS but it does stop well.I think for a single person it's a good car to own,could be a good hand me down for college minded."

"This is my 3rd Hyundai since 1996. They last forever, cheap to run, and have a great warranty. Elantra had over 120,000 on basic oil changes. Buy one!"
