1998 Hyundai Accent GL 1.5 from North America
A good reliable inexpensive car
Right wheel bearing replaced at 94K. Hyundai warrantied that repair and paid back in full.
100K tune up cost me about 750 bucks for new timing belt etc.
Cracked exhaust manifold went on 106K. Hyundai honored the repair due to a recall and I will be paid back in full.
This car was one of the better Hyundai's produced that year. I know of many people with this model that complained about the chronic problems they have. I still own the car and it drives very well. The entire is perfect and the paint job looks better than most cars with this millage. Buying a used Hyundai is always better than a new one. These cars are known for many defects on the start.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
