1996 Hyundai Accent GT 1.5 DOHC 16v from North America
The Accent GT is a great buy
Not much has gone wrong with this car.
The wiper blade motor grease could not cope well with the harsh Canadian winter. This malfunction was fixed by the dealer at no cost.
I love driving this car still even after five years. It's got a lot of zip to it and has served me well.
You notice a big difference in power when you have four people in the car, but this is expected since it's such a small car with a small engine.
The fuel consumption is low especially on the highways which is a blessing now that prices have gone up so much.
I recommend the GT to anyone who wants a great, reliable first car that's inexpensive to buy and to maintain. Oh yeah, it's also a lot of fun to drive.
It's too bad Hyundai stopped making this model, the GSi and Sport models are close but not as good in my opinion.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
