1995 Hyundai Accent L 1.5 SOHC from North America


I will buy another Hyundai


Rear Oxygen Sensor.


Slight leak from water pump (replaced during timing belt service)

General Comments:

I have had this car for close to 2 years now and have found it to be very reliable and economical.

The seats are not comfortable, but a $20 pad from Kmart took care of that problem.

The car is OK on long trips, it is fairly quiet and handles fairly decently.

It seems to be well built - I would rate the quality and reliability up there with american cars if not better.

1995 Hyundai Accent LSi 1.3 from UK and Ireland


Reliable nippy runaround


Shortly after delivery of the car the boot lock needed replacing.

General Comments:

The car was basically bulletproof. Nothing broke down or failed apart from the boot lock.

Servicing from dealer was expensive, so the money I saved in petrol (37mpg against 32mpg on my old car) went towards higher than expected service charges (£130 rather than £85 on my old car).

The car was smooth and easy to drive and quite peppy.

Seats were too soft, but plenty of room for its size.

For the cam belt change service I took the car to an ex-hyundai dealer who charged £100 less that the main dealer for the service.

Only changed it because I needed a bigger car.

A great bargain for a beginner!!!!!


The paint on the side view mirrors has faded.

The windows have come off the track. The engine ticks.

This car is great on gas.

Its great in the snow.

I am also a Hyundai Accent owner and it seems as though there is a defect with the windows because mine also fell off the track. It's not too much fun when it rains or snows, but otherwise I love my little pink car.

1995 Hyundai Accent 4 Door Sedan 1.5L from North America


Low cost, high value, and stylish to boot


Broken clutch cable at 9k miles (repaired under warranty).

"Flex" exhaust pipe at 22k (repaired under warranty).

Rear exhaust pipe at 60k.

Brake pads (front) at 70k miles.

Center console/arm rest broken.

High/low beam headlight switch stuck in high beam mode at 80k.

Was suffering from very poor performance and very hard starting at 95k miles, and had a major tune-up done (by the dealer) which fixed all the problems.

Driver's seat foam insides were worn down to the metal frame.

New water pump at 100k (car died - towed to the dealer).

Brake pads and rotors (front) at 120k.

New alternator at 125k (car died - towed to the dealer).

General Comments:

I bought this car right out of college and traded in another Hyundai (one my parent's gave me that I had trashed). I shopped around before buying and it turned out that Hyundai was the best deal for me. Plus I was given a "loyalty" incentive for buying another Hyundai.

I didn't buy this car to drag race, it's *not* a barn burner. Passing cars can be tricky because of this.

I've taken good care of it, washing that North-eastern USA winter salt off off of it (no rust) and changing the oil every 3-5k miles.

The car is loud when driving, so I bought a CD-player that is louder than the car noise and have gotten used to it.

I've owned the car for nearly six years now. It's paid off, has never caused me any major headaches (other than needed a tow twice) or dings to my bank account. Overall it's been good to me.
