1999 Hyundai Accent GLS 1.5 from Turkey
A passion to its owner
Generally the mechanical strength is satisfactory and I didnt experience any failures, but had the following minor problems; noisy gear-changing sometimes; (only when hurried-up).
Front-right shock absorber (which was manufactured in Turkey) had an oil leak because of a crack when the total distance counter showed 22.000kilometers.
This car is a polite looking sedan as well as having a sportive external view. Performance is the most considerable positive feature with it. Its light chassis (930kg) is carried by the power-full 95hp engine. The performance progressed even to a better status as it's engine oil was refreshed more frequently (I did this every 3.000km, but NOT 10.000km as routinely recommended)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
