2003 Hyundai Accent SS 1.5L petrol from North America
Bored to sleep, but got me there most of the time
Head gasket blew, causing a bad oil leak.
Oil pan leak repaired twice.
Transmission shift control switches (makes the car change gear).
Needs an alignment after every big pothole.
Rear brake cylinders leaking.
Evap cannister plugged.
Burns oil now that all the leaks are fixed... (of course...)
I first got this car and thought it was alright. After a few months of ownership, problems started to pop up. Thankfully these cars are very simply built and easy to fix yourself at home.
I do not enjoy driving this car. It is very slow, loud, uncomfortable, bland, and just makes me fall asleep (not jokes).
I have to say though, I would recommend this car. I have never paid so little to drive a car. It may not be very reliable, but the car is super cheap and easy to fix! If you keep up with regular maintenance, this car will be kind of alright. My little Accent is very cheap to insure and pretty good on fuel; I calculated 7 L/100km.
If you live in the country, in areas with lots of snow, or drive on the highway often, I would not recommend this car.
If you live in a city or small town (and you don't drive far), this is the car for you.
If you find a cheap one, buy it, but don't spend a lot for one of these.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
