Summary:

Good for saving fuel, but Bad for long life

Faults:

I had this car after selling my Honda Civic Vtec 1.6 by mistake as I may call it.

(1) This accent looks good though, but the handling is very poor. I never had any idea of how poor it could be when it comes to handling. it keeps slipping all time when it RAINS. and even with dry weather, it still tempts to slip.

(2) It gets a real tough time when running up small hills.

I always have to shift to seconds speed to climb up and still isn't that strong for the task.

Above all, I like it a little bit because it is my current car, but I'm planning on getting the Honda Accord or Vw jetta. the Accent is too small for me and the most sick side of it is that, it keeps slipping off the roads and I value my life and don't wanna spent any cash on accident damages of others as well as mine.

I'll sell it soon as I get done with my plans.

Hey, It didn't work that great for me, but if you wanna try it, its your choice!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
