My used 2917 Hyundai car experience * sigh...

Am 2nd owner * bought from Hertz with 41,000 miles * then had a complete checkup * oil was black * Hertz did a number on me, when looking @ their check out list. Car is about average, with a few quirky items * no lock on passenger side * no rear wiper * rear view mirror won't stay put * overly complicated dash controls * seat material burns too easily from cigarette ash * Hertz rubber floor mats from another model * glove box should be level when opened * dashboard needs an edge to hold small items * am 93, drive about 3,000 mi/yr * car front too low - too easy to hit curb * driver window good * other 3 windows constantly fail & need fixing * tire warning light flash, even though pressure is OK * trunk good for large items with rear seats folded * all in all OK car for me...


Transmission problems

Bought a 2017 hyandai accent. Have to replace transmission at 66000 miles. No warranty because Iam 2nd owner. Apparently this is a big problem with the accent. The shop doing my transmission said he replaced one at 23000 weeks before. No warranty either because it had a salvage title. Hyandai should do a recall on these cars


Best car I came across when shopping

This car is great on gas mileage and handles good this vehicle is very reliable and also sporty I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a gas saver
