General Comments:

Well after owning this car for 10 years (11 years to be exact hehe:P) I can say that this car is truly rembarkable and very reliable I would say. It has a 1.5 litre petrol engine, and it really pulls off very strongly! In fact if you decide to drive with 40 km/h on fifth gear, the car just takes it happy and easily without having to do a down-change to 4th. In general Hyundai have created a very good car ;)

My only complaints are about the way the seats are manufactered, they are manufactured from hard materials and so if you spend a day of driving I usually end up of back sore. The other complain is about the Fuel Consumption.. since nowadays the fuel prices have risen, a car like this is expected to be really hard on the pocket, considering that it consumes about Lm 15 petrol a week.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

I see the Accent as almost the best performing car in its own class, also having a good hp/bhp ratio

Faults:

It consumes a fairly good amount of fuel.

Certain models are not even imported here in Malta.

No diesel engines are available in Malta for the Hyundai Accent.

General Comments:

The performance of this car is well over that for other cars that I have driven in my life. It has good acceleration, comfortable seats, is spacious, and has very good handling.

However I feel that considering the price for petrol here in Malta, it is a bit expensive to run.
