Very happy with the car. Have been averaging over 34 mpg.

2009 Hyundai Accent Auto GLS

Small beautiful sedan and bought this car used with 40000 miles. A nice car for the city very durable and fits into the parking space. The car drives very nicely, and has a substantial feel for its size. Its handling is excellent. It has automatic transmission and it has more than enough oomph for day-to-day driving. I am very happy with the car. Have been averaging over 34 mpg mixed city and highway driving. Very durable and reliable, and maintenance, tires, and other parts are inexpensive.

The downside of my 2009 Hyundai accent gls.

2009 Hyundai Accent Auto GLS

Overall it is a good car, the only complaint I have about it is the comfortability of it. On long road trips the seats are not very comfortable and the room inside the vehicle is very confined. Any time there is more than one person riding with me, myself and the other passengers feel very crammed together. There's not much legroom for the passengers in the back and storage is lacking.

It is reliable with routine maintenance.

2009 Hyundai Accent Auto GLS

I have had issues with my ignition coils. I've had to replace my brakes. My timing belt went out at 140k miles. I have a slight exhaust leak. It is compact and easy to get anywhere. It drives fairly smooth but does not have automatic locks or windows. It also does not have cruise control which I am not crazy about for trips. Overall it has been a reliable vehicle.

Reliable car, with cheap emergency fixes

2009 Hyundai Accent Auto GLS

It's a very dependable car. The only problem I have had to come across was one of the engine's plugs burnt out. And it was a easy tip to autozone to fix. The only complaint I have about it. Is the gas mileage. I drive 30 minutes there and back every day for work and need gas at least once every week. But it only takes 25-30 bucks at most to fill the tank

The 2009 Hyundai Accent is a great car and all the models are similar.

2009 Hyundai Accent Auto GLS

The 2009 Hyundai Accent is an amazing vehicle. It is great on gas and is a great car for getting around town. It's family friendly and is compact but still has enough room for my family of 4. The trunk has enough room for a stroller plus anything else you might have. I've had no problems so far with the car and it's been great for my family and I.

Your car will last as long as you take good care of it.

2009 Hyundai Accent Auto GLS

As of now no major performance issues were encountered. You only have to maintain the parts and have the car checked by expert technicians. Sometimes, problems are with the owners themselves because they are not taking good care of their car. So the car will only last for a long time if the owners are careful.
