Very reliable cost effective little car

Brought this little car 4.5 years ago for a $500 bargin. (It'd been through 3 previous owners) It is now a 21 year old car and still reliable as anything. And cheap to run - about 7L/100km. Inside is very roomy and the rear seats fold down for those larger loads. It still passes it warrant of fitness without trouble, and the only problem ive had is it now runs at high revs for the first couple of min until it warms up, Really very minor considering its age. It should last a few more years providing i dont run it into another concrete wall! Overall great first car, in no hurry to let it go, very reliable and extremely cost effective.


This car has been incredible

I bought the manual Accent GS hatchback car in 2010, when it was 10 years old, when it was at 160,000 kms. I have been driving it for 2.5 years. It is now at 220,000 kms and no major repairs have been needed. The repairs that have been done are: the starter, radiator fan and leaking fuel lines. The gas gage stopped working shortly after I bought it, which is not a big deal. These are all minor repairs that, considering the age and kms on this car, are to be expected. I am really enthusiatic about this car, it's the best car I've owned. It's already surpassed my expectations. One of the reasons I think it's reliable is because it's so simple. It doesn't have power steering or power windows or very many extra features - that means, less things that can break. This car is still driving very well, and hopefully still have a few years left!


Great on gas

I have had this car for the past two years. When I bought it, there was 40,000 miles on it and I've put another 80,000 driving to school for a year and then the past year to my place of employment. (Both are 40-50 miles away.) This car gets great gas mileage and repairs were relatively inexpensive. I personally had trouble with the electronics in the car, but someone had installed an after market alarm and connected the ground and battery wires incorrectly, which led to several problems. Otherwise, I love this car. It's been reliable and handles decent in the snow for such a small car.
