wont go the cheap route again

by meh... from on Mon Oct 04 2010

This car was trouble from the start. Burns oil like a mother-- turn signals and horn gave out. had tranny rebuilt, a year later it started to go again. performance in completely lacking. engine is more likely to bog down with more throttle than to speed up! over all, it has been a money pit...

A little putt putt

by nothotforhyundai from Ontario, Canada on Thu Mar 06 2008

This car is slow..... It had trouble accelerating even up small hills. The heater broke in (2003). It is a cute car, cheap on gas, and it never broke down however, I didn't think it was worth what I paid for it.

by Tammy from Sarasota, FL on Wed May 06 2009

It is a good car for the money. I have this car for more than 3 years. Nothing major need to be repair. Very reliable.

Our Take on the 1998 Hyundai Accent

The good thing about driving one of the smallest cars of 1998 - the Hyundai Accent two-door hatchback - is that it comes with a shrunken sticker price that's sure to appeal to folks just seeking basic transportation.

Who's going to argue with the Accent's base price of $9,899 - or our GS test vehicle, which only cost $11,008 - once you've added a couple amenities such as air conditioning and floor mats.

Well, leave it to us to come up with a few compelling arguments, one for embracing the little Korean bargain and one for ignoring it.

She: I'm giving the Accent four stars, which is our highest rating, but I'm also going to tell buyers that I have some serious reservations about owning this smallest... Read More
