2002 Hyundai Accent from North America
The car is junk and unsafe
Throttle sensor fixed four times in 2 yrs. The brakes (the drums and shoes were replaced) 2 times. Now the spark plugs keep burning out 1 at a time, 3 have so far. I was in an accident with this car and the airbag never deployed and it should have and also the seatbelt never held me back from hitting the steering wheel. I was sitting at a stop sign, minding my business (I seen the RPM 's revved a little higher, so I pushed harder on the brake) and all of a sudden my car lunged into the car ahead of me.
I took the car off the road for good. I am afraid that it will either kill my family or someone else's and I do not want that. The company should take the cars off the road themselves.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have had a Hyundai 1995 for 3 years, I would have to say that if I compare all of my friends problems with my problems, it's that either I'm really lucky or I have the best car. I'm not talking about aesthetics and plastic pieces, they are made cheap so that the car fits our budget.
Plus, if you do have a problem like anybody else would have, even if they had high class cars like Mercedes, BMW..., we would still be paying the cheapest ever. We are talking about average 50%+ off.
I have boosted all of my friends and avoided accidents. I was the only one within my friends to take the risk of driving over 300km away from home and guess what, I always brought her back to her parking area.

My 2002 Accent motor shakes and my CEL flashes.
