This car is great for your first car, its great on gas, and is great for long trips. If you're a tall person I suggest not getting it because the inside may be too small for you, otherwise this is a great investment!

Solid as a Honda at a more affordable price

by from Tucson on November 13, 2007

We have always been Honda people until the price became too much. Tried the Hyundai and love it. Solid, stable, good features and terrific warrantee. Hard to beat for the $$$.

8 Years and 80K miles, only repairs its needed were 2 new coil packs ($38 each and five min fix). Mine gets right at 30MPG and I beat it like a dog. Adequate Horse Power for what it is, a comuter car... Doesnt like the highway (4000 RPM at 70 MPH) but does it anyway without complaint. Comfortable for a 6 footer, plenty of storage in the hatch. Great stereo. Good looks. Unbeatable bang for the buck! Im giveing mine to my 16 year old as soon as she can drive a manual.

Well Designed Little Compact Import Car.

I've had my little 2007 Accent almost 2 years now and overall I am a very pleased customer. For the exception of safety the Accent rating is higher than all her competitors according to Consumer Reports. I will say I would not want to get hit in the side by an oncoming Hummer. The middle LED brake light failed which the dealer replaced free of charge despite exceeding the 12,000 mile warranty on that part which I wasn't too happy about. The part was $140!!!!! The insides of this part were terribly corroded. Perhaps it was a manufacturing glitch rather than a design issue. Otherwise no issues to report. A few previous customer reviews stated that 5th gear is very high which I agree. It makes for a rough ride at speeds over 65mph.

I bought new and the car has been great.Only have 13,500 miles on her but she is a very dependable car.The warranty on the car alone is worth it.I have the se model and if you are looking for a good used car or a new one consider the accent.I was hoping for better gas mileage but it does have a small gas tank and I am getting around 19 to 23 in town and 30 to 32 on highway.

PROS: - Awesome off the line acceleration - Precise handling - Standard goodies galore - Great clutch feel - Very quiet engine - Antarctic-quality A/C CONS: - 5th gear is unusually low, resulting in high rpms on the highway - Shifter linkages feel a bit "plasticky" - A/C fan deafening on highest speed - Stereo has lame preset equalizers - Many buyers are reporting fuel economy well below EPA ratings INTERIOR: Simple, to the point, with a few interesting lines. Materials are nicer than my current car, which cost about $7000 more. The plastics all seem quite thick and sturdy. I didn't really notice anything about the seats, so I assume that they must have been comfy enough. There was definitely plenty of leg and headroom (I'm 6' even). The Accent rear seats can't fold down completely flat, which is minorly disappointing. Stereo sounded pretty good, but preset equalizers are lame! HANDLING: Steering was very tight, and the car responded instantly to input. This model didn't have the sport-tuned springs, but I didn't notice any crazy wallowing through curves. Gear shifting was very easy with the manual tranny... clutch action was much more predictable than the Yaris. The shifter itself felt a bit "plasticky", like there was a bit of flex in the linkages, but nothing that really annoyed, or couldn't be fixed via aftermarket parts. ENGINE: The Accent is a freakin' pocket rocket, up to 40mph anyway. I don't know what the power-to-weight ratio is, or the torque, but it's a blast in town! Above 40mph, it's about like any other tiny car. One interesting thing to note was the 5th gear rpms. All my previous 4 cylinders have turned between 2800 and 3200 rpms at 70mph. The Accent turns 3600, which makes it feel like you're pushing kinda' hard. Even so, it's rated @ 36mpg highway, but I have a hard time believing that. NOISE: I've read multiple reviews that claim the new Accent is noisy, especially at higher speeds. I'm here to tell you, they LIE. At 70mph the Accent is literally half as loud as my Vibe, and while turning 800 more rpms. Throughout the rpm range, the engine is just loud enough to hear what's going on under the hood so that you don't need to constantly look at your tach. I didn't notice any road noise at all. The Acccent is a fantastic little car, and will most likely be in my driveway very shortly. =)

I own a 2007 Accent 2dr HB with A/C, pwr windows, pwr mirrors,pwr locks, 5 sp man. trans. The cost with the options was over $1800.oo less than competators. Steering is tight and responsive like driving a sports car. The car is very quick off of the line and in traffic. The transmission is the low point in this automobile. Down shifting is hard and the gear shifter seems too loose. Getting it into reverse sometimes requires double clutching. Comfortable to drive but the tilt steering wheel is awkward to adjust and for me at 5'11" full up is the position most comfortable which is about what a standard steering wheel would be at. All of the controls are very comfortable to reach and with eyes on the road adjustment very easy. The waterbottle holder in the door is a neat little addition. I'm not a big fan of the push button odometer/trip gauge. visibility: mirrors are big with overlapping visibility. visibility over the left shoulder is poor which in my view detracts from my mirror confirmation of left lane traffic and merging onto a highway. Passenger comfort is excellent for a small car. the back seat area is roomy with adequate leg room for me. Rear seating A/C-heater vent is a nice touch. I owned a 96 accent and comparing this to my new car is almost unfair. Far better ride, much quieter, greatly improved all around performance. I love the look of the 2dr. (although it resembles my neighbors 2002 focus a lot) mine has more headroom and more fwd visibility.

Really is best in it's class

I just bought the 2007 Accent SE in Ebony Black with grey/black two-tone interier. This little car is simply the best 3-door currently available. I'm 6'7" tall and yet I fit comfortably in the driver's seat. . .and don't even need the seat all the way back! I test drove all of the vehicles in it's class, and the worst for interier space is the Toyota Yaris 3-door. I had to mash the driver's seat into the back seat just to fit. Plus, the Accent SE has more safety features, better wheels, and well, just check it out. It's defenatly worth every penny. By the way, if you are interested in the Accent SE than hurry because it was a real pain just finding a dealer that actually had one in stock. I'm not sure why this is, but I had to go to a dealer three cities over just to get it.

good car for the money!

by from Bucharest on June 15, 2007

Good car for the money in Romania, power, features, comfort, fuel consumption. Sporty, the 1,6CVVT/112HP. I have with it 9200km in one year.
