Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
EXCELLENT COMMUTER CAR
Pros: GAS MILEAGE
Cons: TRANSMISSONGOOD AROUND TOWN TO RUN SHORT TRIPS AND ERRANDS
Pros: Gas mileage
Cons: rough rideGood transportation car
2010 gs auto
Cons: nothinggreat little car!
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 cant kill it--best car ever
Cons: no air vetsI drive over 150 miles a day and this car just keeps on going--35-38 miles per gal STILL--great car to travel with--it is also a snomobile (with snow tires all around) can't get it stuck in snow
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!
Waranty vs Dealer Performance
Pros: Stick Shift
Cons: Waranty ReliabilityThe companies promotes a 100,000 mi waranty is only as good as the paper it is written on! At every delivery for service, the dealers claim that all parts function as they should and a service charge is placed on all owners that do not receive a waranty claim. the service charge is for waisting the time of the dealer. Who in my mind has no intentions of completing any type of waranty work for free. I have had to replace within the first three years of ownership at my own cost: tires & struts, battery, & wheel covers with peeling paint. I did purchase this car to be a cheap commuter. The extra cost and the agravation of never getting a repair completed under waranty is reason enough to never, never, never ever buying another HYUNDAI period.
