2002 Hyundai Accent GSi 1.6L DOHC from North America
Great fun, a riot to own
My experience with the car has been an absolutely fantastic one. No, it doesn't accelerate like a rocket, but the engine has been very stable so far, and nothing outside of the usual long-wear items has needed to be replaced. While I do take very good care of the car, using engine and oil tune ups and additives, and keeping the general maintenance up, I do also put the car thru some punishment, taking it to speeds of over 215 Km-PH. if you do put in the inexpensive and routine maintenance, you will be well rewarded with an inexpensive car that has great mileage and is tons of fun to drive. Just keep in mind that it is a cheap four-banger, so it's acceleration isn't great, and winter driving can suck if there's black ice or more than a foot of snow.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
