Previous carFord Tempo

Summary:

A bargain the feels like it was made for me

Faults:

The only fault that this car has is that it doesn't accelerate fast enough for my driving style anymore.

General Comments:

Despite that fact, I love this car. It got me all the way from Olympia, WA to Witchita Falls, TX then to Panama City, FL and back to Olympia without a single problem.

It is a very reliable and comfortable vehicle.

The lumbar support on the front seats is great for distance driving and so are the cup-holders.

The dealer that I bought the car from is great as well! They treat me like I spent $30,000 instead of $10,000 even if I just get a tire rotation.

Summary:

A treat for anyone

Faults:

I have experienced no faults with my Hyundai to date.

Any problems have all been wear faults. Such as; tyres, brake pads, etc.

General Comments:

Although the car is not of the highest quality compared to a BMW, but put it aside a car of similar price and it is by far best car in it's class.

Modifying a Hyundai is not easy either. But if you're serious and are willing to put in the leg work, you can find plenty of places willing to lend a hand to personalize your Hyundai.

Previous carFord Bronco II

Summary:

It left a sour taste in my mouth like old sushi

Faults:

The car seems to have a hard time gathering power and shifting when the overdrive is turned off.

I had to have the O2 sensor replaced more than 3 times already.

My tires wore very badly within 3 months requiring multiple alignments.

If you plan on going over 55 miles per hour plan on having your head vibrated off your shoulders.

The steering in this car is extremely choppy and sharp, like driving a go cart.

The exhaust is loud and very noisy at 4000 rpms.

To go from 0 to 60 miles per hour seemed to take the take my car at least one hour screaming between 4000 and 5500 rpm.

The cars brake pedal had to be mashed completely to the floor for the car to go into drive.

General Comments:

I would never consider buying another Korean automobile ever again!

I just want people judge a car for what it is. The Hyundai Accent is priced extremely low, and so some leeway should be given when thinking about its performance.

I'm sorry to see that www.carsurvey.org doesn't want offensive material posted, but allowed this person to say that "this left a bad taste in my mouth like old sushi". Sushi is a Japanese food. Hyundai is a Korean car, but this commenter seems to have confused his bigotry (unless it's against Asians in general).

He also saw fit to proclaim all Korean cars to be unfit because of his dissatisfaction with one particular low-priced automobile. I'm sure that if he had plunked down $18,000 for a Hyundai Sonata instead of $9,000 for the Accent, he would have been much more satisfied. Let's not judge a whole country based on one bargain priced automobile.

In case people want to know, I am not Korean, I am American.

Summary:

The GT denomination says all

Faults:

Not even a single problem.

Maybe an suggestion to Hyundai: build your Gt models with rear disks!!

General Comments:

White gauges, 14" alloy wheels, real spoiler, Pioneer Cd Player + 4 speakers system.

Its 1500cc, 16 valves, DOHC engine makes all the diference, reaching easily 180 km/h.

I have made from 0 to 100km in 9 seconds.

With the Bridgestone Potenza 205/60 R14 I bought, this car can support sharp curves at high speeds.

I have beated Tercels, Gols, and even Civics.

Does that car can wear 205/60 tires??

Sounds like they're too big for it.

That car can have 205 40 r17's if you wanted.
