Advice: Buy new, less issues!! Get the 5 speed if possible, auto trans has no get up & go!!The leg room was not an issue. Wanted the 5 speed but, wound up getting the automatic. Buy the 5 speed!!!

Pros: My Favorite feature is the cup holders located under the A/C controls.

Advice: This is a very good car for someone on a budget, but also wants to have a brand new car.When I arrived at the Hyundai dealership in Austin, Texas I was surprised to see that there were lots of people looking at the differant cars that Hyundai had to offer. I liked the way the 2005 Accent looked especially the GT model. After a testdrive I decided to purchase the 2005 Hyundai Accent GT. That same day. When I drove it off the lot it only had 16 miles.
Cons: Head room
Advice: Buy this car if you are looking for a car with some performance in a compact/economical vehicleI purchased this vehicle just recently. I have found it to be a peppy little car even though it has a small engine. The engine and road noise could have been reduced a bit, but it's not too bad. I am 5'11 and it is a little bit of a squeeze for me to get in and out but not too compromising. I compared this car with the Kia Rio, Toyota Echo and a Honda Civic. As far as cost goes, the Accent was my first choice as I was looking for a good economical car and somewhat inexpensive. Overall I would suggest this car to someone looking for a nice compact car on a budget.
Pros: Comfortable and low gas consumption
Cons: The WHeels (tires and rims) sould of made it a little bigger
Advice: go tell the dealer stright up the price and option you want for the car. be aggressiveThe Car is great and thats that. I went home with a smile on my face when i got my accent. it gets to where i want to go and I plan to add lots of neon inside and and othe acceories like spoiler and moon roof. People say im wasting my money if i do that but i think they depend to much on what other thinks. I love this car and i got it with my own money. But in the end it comes down to what you want to do with your car. personaly 4 door sedan looks better then 3 door one.
