2001 Hyundai Accent GS 1.5 from North America
Rebuilt the automatic transmission twice for a total of $3500 dollars.
Replaced engine $2700, because if your timing belt goes, so does your engine, unlike my Suzuki when it went. Both went before their replacement time.
I am now getting rid of it, because if you get a fuel line leak and you need to replace the line, you have to replace both the gas and brake lines back to front to the tune of $1400.
If you have to replace the catalytic converter, you also have to replace the exhaust manifold. I got a used one for it, but still cost $600.00 installed.
A nice looking car, and it was comfortable with lots of trunk space for its size.
Good gas mileage in summer, but with winter it did suffer some.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
