Advice: Beware of 2007 Accent hatchbacksThis car is OK for the price, My 2007 Accent Hatchback has already had it's problems. At 2000, 3200, and 4300 miles check engine light came on. Hyundai dealer couldn't seem to fix it on the first 2 tries. Now I am waiting 2 days for parts to see if third time will fix it. I am disappointed because I thought this car had great ratings. Maybe because this is a new model, maybe next years models will be better?
