2001 Hyundai Accent GS from North America
Very economical and easy to drive
Windshield wipers stopped working.
Parking brake light stays on occasionally.
Tiny hole in sealing on flip-up sunroof.
Transmission went bad at 105,000 miles.
Overall, you get good 'bang-for-your-buck' with this car. It is very economical, no power locks or windows, minor things have gone wrong, but quick and cheap to fix, but the running cost is very cheap.
I traveled about 1,100 miles while moving to a new state and only paid about $70 for gas. The gas mileage I get is amazing, around 36-37 mpg in the city when it's warm, and near 40 on the highway. I've noticed I get better mileage in long distance runs, to let the engine warm up and not have so much stop and go traffic.
Interior is bland and louder than other cars I've been in, and it has a cheesy door chime.
I paid $3,600 to get it at 74,000 miles, and the resale value is basically the same after 30k more miles.
Recommended for someone who needs their first car, or anyone looking to spend little money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
