This car SUCKS!!!
I own a 2002 Accent, which I bought about 3 and a half years ago or so, used.
Right off the lot, the transmission blew. Then the acceleration problems started.
More recently, I had to get my spark plug coil package replaced due to the CEL light coming on. I had to get this done 3 times before the dealership told me I needed a new computer in my car. This is going to cost me about 1000.00, on top of the 400.00 I already put into the spark plug issues. So now I have the CEL flashing at me constantly till I get that done.
Also, after replacing all of my belts at 60,000 miles as recommended, they do nothing but whine and screech now.
My brakes have been replaced 3 times, and it still makes me uncomfortable because the pedal still goes all the way to the floor; one day I'm going to slam into the back of someone.
I still owe about 3,000 on the car (yes, I got screwed), but I'm looking to get a new one because I'm irritated and feel unsafe. Off to Honda I go.
I will never again buy a Hyundai.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
