Interior is a bit shoddy!!!

Right, with uni, a job and a child, it was time to get my own car. There was just no way that sharing my mum’s ford KA was feasible anymore. So, in June 2004 I dragged my long suffering dad along to help me buy my first car. It had been a long time coming. I was 17 when I passed my test and being...

Cheap, reliable and easy to drive

Steamy windows

20th December 2002 is a day that is etched in my memory, I don’t think I’ll ever forget the elation I felt when I heard those fateful words ‘you’ve passed’. I’m referring to my driving test, of course! Passing (first time) absolutely made my day and I was still on a high five days later when my...

“Better Try Before You Buy”

published 14/04/2004

Very cheap, nifty, good value for money

Poor plastics and trim quality, noisy ride

The Hyundai plant is only 90 kms away from Istanbul where I live. There, the H1 Starex is built for export to the whole world also several Accent models ranging from the 1.3, 1.5i, 1.5CRDI models. In fact the facelift which made the car look like a shrinked Subaru Impreza was actually done here...

“Cheap and nasty but reliable”

published 05/02/2001

Cheap, seems reliable

feels cheap, nasty ride

Opinion based on Accent 1.3e (a 1.3i with an "e"), S reg. The Accent itself is definitely budget sector - although the fit and finish externally often belies that fact. What is wrong with them ? The demisting is terrible (and I mean *terrible* to the point of dangerous). In wet weather, when you...

After my normal transport, a battered Renault Extra, decided to burst it's radiator one cold day, I needed 4 wheeled transport, winter is not the time for 2 wheels, and I was about to get a bus timetable when a friend offered me the loan of a Hyundai Accent, it was a 1.3 Lsi Automatic, rather...

“Straightforward motoring”

published 27/10/2004

Good price, well equipped

None really

Hyundai Accent was bought in preference to the more fashionable Suzuki Ignis, both were similarly priced, but the accent wins on equipment and only really loses on being less than eyecatching. On test driving the Accent seemed more solid and "carlike" than the gimmicky Ignis. The Accent is a...

I've driven one of these since 2001 and they are great cars. Not broken down on me once. One thing I would say is that I've recently started driving mine on long journeys and it gets very uncomfortable, so don't buy one if you're doing a lot of driving. I drove an accent as a new driver and they...

“Hyundai's Poor Quality”

published 22/08/2008

None

Lots of issues

I own an Accent from 1998 and have only 92.000 klms. I always drive "gently". In the long term, I EXPERIENCED ALL THESE PROBLEMS: a) it has poor construction quality, b) it appears often mechanical and electrical malfunctions, c) the fuel consumption usually is bigger than this described by its...

“Hyundai Accent 1.3i”

published 30/08/2000

Excellent value and reliable

None as yet!

I purchased my Hyundai Accent just over two years ago. At that time the car was extremely good value for money, being significantly larger than the majority of cars in its price range and coming with 3 years free insurance (offer no longer valid though). It has proved extremely reliable and fuel...

“Cheap but cheerful”

published 01/08/2000

Inexpensive, trustworthy, quite comfortable

Petrol consumption a little high

I have owned an Accent for two and a half years now from new. I chose this model mainly for the price and looks. I have had absolutely no problems with the car, it has never let me down. Though it is a very basic car with no thrills attatched, it has served my purpose well getting me from A to B...

“My new Accent”

published 31/12/2000

Drive, Comfort, Price, Value for money

Interior plastic thin

Well I have to say that this is the second Accent I have bought from Hyundai. The new accent (1999 onwards) is quite different to the original car I purchased. Firstly, a totally different shape, I prefer it, my wife doesn,t! Also more gadgets on the new car, and a new choice of colours- not a...

“A true value car”

published 04/10/2000

Price, looks and grunt

Gearbox

I own an M reg accent which I have been very happy with. The 1.3 engine is remarkably responsive and the car has more 'grunt' than any car I have driven with a similiar size engine and handles like it is glued to the road. The price was the main reason I bought the car being £2000 or more cheaper...

poor seats

I have Hyundai Accent 3.1 which is now three years old. Other than a minor problem when it was first delivered - the screenwash reservoir emptied itself onto my drive - we have not had a single problem with this car. It goes well and it looks much nicer than any other car in its class. I would...
