EXCELLENT COMMUTER CAR
Pros: GAS MILEAGE
Cons: TRANSMISSONGOOD AROUND TOWN TO RUN SHORT TRIPS AND ERRANDS
Pros: easy in and out of car
Cons: resale valueDrives good, rides well for a small car, the gas milage is decent around town. Does not hold it's value. Not a good buy for a short time.
I like my Accent!
Pros: Entertainment system
Cons: seating comfortI know that I didn't throw a lot of stars on the chart, but I really like my Accent. I drive about 100 miles a day to and from work. I guess a Mercedes would be more comfortable, an Audi more powerful, and a Mustang more interesting, but then they might cost a little bit more for a commuter car user!
Pros: IMPRESSIVE MILEAGE,RIDE, POWER.COMFORT,and QUALITY
Advice: IF YOU DON'T MIND IT'S LOOKS,'YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED !Not terribly impressed with the Accent's looks, but other than that,this little car is quite impressive! Mileage varied from, about, 28 in local driving, up to quite an inpressive, 42 miles on the highway. After several trips to and from, Lancaster, Pa. to Westchester County, N.Y. this mileage was, CONSISTANT ! Not much in the looks dept. in my opinion, but QUITE IMPRESSIVE LITTLE CAR ! OH YEAH, this was,' RENTAL !
