2019 Hyundai Accent Sedan SEL Preferred

I was given this car from my mother after having a liver transplant in order to get to and from medical appointment ring an automotive mechanic, I find this car well designed, and ease of service The only complaint I have with this vehicle is the unsteadiness on the hiway and the car is quite easily blown around in high wind. The cruise control acc/dec +-, malfunction often but still works. Car could have had an ashtray but unfortunately does not. Other than that it’s a great car and I’d recommend it, I’ve gotten 4L/100kms Hwy.


Once interior, runs great on highway or freeways.

This car suites our needs perfectly. It has a great ride. It has good pickup for merging onto freeways. It is sporty and is fun to drive.
