2001 Hyundai Accent Coupe 1.5 Liter from North America
It's hard to look macho in this car
Besides the regular maintenance, nothing has broken down, yet.
Please note that this is my girlfriends car, not mine, but since I don't have a car, I have been in this car for about 20000 miles for rides and occasionally driving it.
When my girlfriend loans me the car, I feel that it's absolutely impossible to look macho, or tough in it (I guess the Roxy sticker doesn't help). Even a Civic could look pretty cool with a suspension drop and a body kit, but this car I don't think was ever meant to be a street car. Of course my girlfriend looks really cute in it, she being 5'1 and 90 lbs this car fits her great.
About how it performs: The acceleration seems weak on the freeway no matter what the rpm, which explains the mid 30+ miles per gallon and the handling capabilities are ample for the average driver.
The interior makes me feel like I am in a tin can. The doors are fairly thin, and the seats are not the softest things in the world, but none the less, it feels more expensive inside than the $8500 she paid for it, new.
The wrap this up, there is nothing class beating about this car, but it doesn't really have any weak spots either. It goes from A to B, cost little to run, and for the most part, seems to be holding together well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
