The check engine light will randomly turn on and off.

I bought my car from murdock Hyundai in lindon, utah and so far I am loving it! It is a used car but so far I haven't had many problems. When I bought it, the windshield was cracked but they easily brought someone into fix that for me. The check engine light will randomly turn on and I have had it looked a but it does not seem to mean anything, the light will turn off by itself in a few days to. I love that the back seats will fold down to extend the trunk and it makes it so convenient for moving! I bought the car when it had 103, 000 miles on it and It's still going strong, haven't even needs to fix anything yet. It is got a great light colored interior so it is a nice contrast to the black exterior and it makes it so it is not so hot all the time in the summer. The air conditioning is also a huge bonus though it will sometimes randomly go warm when you are trying to cool down.

2012 Hyundai Accent : Reliable, spacious, safe, and comfort packed into one car.

I bought a used Hyundai Accent from a dealer that had abou 70k miles on it. It was perfect on gas and super comfortable. However, about 4 years in, the windows stopped going up. It would go down fine but was nearly impossible to get back up. The only really big complaint is that it didn't have a cruise control. Other than that, it has been great with zero issues. December of last year, I had my first wreck ever. A deer jumped out of the woods and right into my car. I was going maybe 50 mph. Not only did the car absorb the damage well, but it kept the deer from coming through the windshield. I only sustained minor issues like a bruise from the seat belt. I definitely recommend this to everyone. Its inexpensive, spacious, reliable, and the best purchase I've ever made.

Not fancy, but gets the job done.

The best feature for me is the great gas mileage - up to 36 mpg on the highway. The gls version I have also has driver/passenger/side airbags, which is nice from a safety standpoint. The interior is definitely economy in quality and legroom is pretty middling, but it has satellite radio, an AUX jack and an iPod jack. I have had only a few repairs - replaced a faulty ignition coil in 2014 and the alternator failed around 70000 miles. I also had to replace the brake light switch around the same time. All told, a nice little car - not luxurious or fancy in any way, but gets me where I need to go with just enough safety and tech features to be enjoyable.
