I think that for as inexpensive as the Accent cost me ($9,995 USD) it's a great value!!!
Nothing has gone terribly with my 2005 Accent. It recently got stuck in mud and that was a bit difficult to get out considering how light weight it is and the fact that my front end was buried. However, I was amazed to find my little car pull itself out after a couple hours of trying. For such a little and inexpensive car, it can really handle itself quite well. I've owned it for the past 6 months and I absolutely love it.
This is my first personal car. I used to have a Chevy Cavalier that I shared with my sister. Id have to say that the accent handles better, gets better gas mileage and seems to have fewer maintenance costs. However, I am from Buffalo, NY and the Cavalier did seem to handle a little bit better in the snow and ice. The Accent doesn't handle terribly by any means it just seems to slip and slide a bit more frequently. The Accent does allow the driver to regain control quicker than the cavalier though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
