2004 Hyundai Accent GT from North America
Not safe to drive!!
Car pulls to the left from day one (66 miles on the car). drove another identical new accent (45 miles on the car) and it does the same. they say it is the torte streering and with it being a small car it pulls to the left. it is a driving hazzard and hard to handle on the road.
HYUNDAI should recall these cars. this usually does not happen until there has been a couple accidents first.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I Bought my 2004 Hyundai Accent GT in August 2004 with 14 miles on the car.
I now have nearly 6000 miles, and I drive it on the highway everyday. I do not think calling it a "hazard" is a fair comment.
As with all cars if you let go of the wheel long enough it will veer eventually.
I was looking for a smaller car that fits in my budget. This car may not be up to everyone's standards, but for a petite woman like myself, I really do enjoy my car.

I love my accent GT, Its got 36000 on it right now and I haven't had any problems with it... except when a skate boarder decided to go through my drivers side window... but not the cars fault and a drunk man decided to cream a bunch of parked cars after passing out, mine included... but over all even after that it drives like the first day I've had it.
Hyundai did a great job at pricing this little car for all it has to offer. And like the last comment, being petite as well, it's a perfect fit!

I took my 2004 Hyundai Accent in to the dealer 4 seperate times for the speed dropping and rpms ranging from 4500 to 5000, and the dealer could not find out what is wrong with it. Took to two (2) dealers and both said the same thing. No codes appear for them to go on. At wits end.

I have a brother who is 6'6" and is driving an 04 accent and loves it. He takes long (6 hour) road trips to come home to visit frequently and hasn't had a single problem with it. If you have veering problems, it's more than likely just a question of unbalanced tires. Take it in and get it fixed and you'll love the car.
