2000 Hyundai Accent Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Hyundai’s smallest, least expensive model is redesigned for 2000, sporting new styling, larger exterior dimensions and a roomier interior. The front-drive Accent again comes in two-door hatchback and four-door sedan styling. Anti-lock brakes, which were dropped from the option list last year, are not offered this year either. All Hyundais come with the most comprehensive new-car warranty. It covers the whole car for five years/60,000 miles, major powertrain components for 10 years/100,000 miles and corrosion for five years/100,000 miles. Hyundai provides free roadside assistance for the first five years.

Interior
Hyundai says the 2000 Accent provides more passenger room in both the front and rear seats thanks to a longer wheelbase and a wider body. Cargo volume is 10.7 cubic feet on the sedan and 16 cubic feet on the hatchback. Both body styles have a folding rear seatback. Standard equipment includes power steering, a cassette player and rear window defroster.

Exterior
Wheelbase on the new Accent is 1.6 inches longer at 96 inches. Width has grown two inches and overall length about 5 inches. The new styling has fewer curves and more straight edges than the old look and larger headlamps that Hyundai says cast a wider, longer beam.

Under the Hood
Accent is new in most areas but not here. The 92-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder used in the previous model returns with a choice of five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions. However, Hyundai sa...

My 1st Car; Tiny but Mighty

My little bad boy is older but still runs like a champ even with the issues (needs new timing belt, shocks and struts.) I got him with quite a few problems from over the years but I got most of them ... Read full review

Though the car is out of date since it is now 18 years old, this car never broke down. Well except the time the flywheel, clutch, and starter needed to be replace and also the fuel pump which was OEM ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
