Great Economy Vehicle that is fun to drive. by Sound Guy from SLC, Utah on 05/04/2011. Trim: 2000 Hyundai Accent L, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I purchased my Accent new in 2000. I had A/C installed. (big plus) and I purchased a dash cluster with a tach and it switched out easy as pie. I really like the look of the 2000 model year compared to earlier and later models. It just looks good to my eye. Mine is Red of course with the Grey cloth interior. It has held up very well. It does have a little road noise but nothing severe in opinion. I like the 5 speed. I put 15“ inch wheels and wider tires on to improve looks and handling. Mileage is great 28 town and 34-38 highway. Replaced a fuel pump which has really been the only major repair. (so far) With only 44,000 miles on it, most people think it's brand new. Best thing, It's paid for!
Cons: Shifting sometimes gives me a little trouble going into first at a stoplight. I have to go into second then into first. Wish I would have purchased a spoiler and installed it. Rear wiper would be nice. Never had one on any other car so, non starter. Overall I have no complaints. I keep it serviced by the book and it has been a wonderful purchase. I figure by the time I have 100,000 miles in it it will be 22 years old. Nice!
Overall review: I would highly recommend and have the Accent and Hyundai in general as a great bargain. I have 8 friends who drive Hyundai from my recommendation and they are all satisfied owners. Maybe I'm blessed but mine Accent has been a great vehicle. Although not the best touring vehicle it does well enough and is fun to drive. It has been to the Grand Canyon, San Francisco, San Juan Islands, British Columbia Las Vegas and even Peoa, Utah! That's by Park City.
