Need an upgrade. . . Good first car though!

My model is very basic and does not have power windows or locks. . . Very unsafe in terms of potential for locking keys in the car. In my opinion, the car is outdated and I am in need of an upgrade. Haven't had many issues with the car outside of those caused by accidents, pretty reliable (especially for a first car). Pretty reliable and good performance, just in need of an upgrade at this point.

It is the most dependable car I have ever owned.

This is the most dependable car I have ever owned! Have owned for 7 years and have only had 2 small problems, and no major problems. I have had oil changes and replaced tires and had a few tune-ups. That is it! I have been hit by other cars 4 times, and I drive away every time. This car just keeps going, last month it hit 100, 000 miles and it shows no signs of slowing down.

The Hyundai Accent is a basic vehicle.

I don't have any performance problems, and it is reliable. It only has basic features. The seats are not very comfortable and the car isn't too high so it is harder to get into. It is very good on gas mileage. I like the color which is tango red. I like that it has a hatchback, but I wish it had 4 doors so that passengers could get in more easily.
