1995 Hyundai Accent from North America
I had the car less than 1 year when all of the following went wrong:
Car stuck in gear.
Transmission slipped out of gear when driving.
Brakes lights stuck.
Emergency brake would not work.
Over the life of the car I have had unusual things also go wrong:
The air vent covers all broke and fell into the ducts.
The heat went out 2 years ago.
The outside mirror's paint has faded.
The cassette player went out.
Tires wear out at an alarming rate.
The brakes are replaced all too frequently.
I cannot keep up with all of the repairs.
The windshield cracked within the first 18 months.
The roof leaked after 14 months.
I know I have left some out.
I am very unhappy with the car I received and I wrote to Hyundai stating I believed I had a lemon. Thay stated the "Lemon Law" did not apply to my situation.
I believe Hyundai now has a great warranty, but my car was purchased before then and I am stuck with this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have own my hyundai accent for 11 years, it's a 1995 and nothing has gone wrong with it yet besides the normal stuff, such as brakes, tires etc. This car never once broke down and its the best car on the road, this thing has 405,000km's on the original motor and still drives and runs like new. I will always have a hyundai!
