Very good MPG
I have bought Hyundai Accent (2012) about a month ago. I am retired and I wanted to own a economical car for traveling. Therefore, MPG and warranty were my main consideration for this car. I have Lexus IS250C but want to baby it. Anyway, I have just come back from 900+ mile vacation and averaged 47 mpg which is very impressive. It averages about 38+ combined. I am Korean American but always loved Japanese cars (Lexus, Toyota, Nissan) but I truly love this car.
Review of 2012 Hyundai Accent
I bought this car about 3 weeks ago, and have already put 2100 miles on it. So I think I have had plenty of time to decide all of my likes and dislikes about the car. I got the automatic SE hatchback, so mine has all of the goodies that you can get. The leather steering wheel with controls, shiftronic, cruise, bluetooth, 16" alloys, etc. I'll start off what what I don't like since that will be quick. I don't like that the armrest on the door is hard plastic. I ******* were soft. It can be a pain in the, er, elbow after 2 or more hours of driving. I don't like that it doesn't have an ashtray. I'm not a smoker, but I like a place to put wrappers or loose change. I also don't like whenever the car senses the slightest upgrade the cruise control goes into 4th gear to keep speed. That's where my complaints end. It's an amazing little car that's fun to drive, and pleasant to look at. It has a great engine that loves to rev, and gets great fuel economy. The controls are very intuitive, the driving position is comfortable, and it's an overall very ergonomic car. I've heard complaints about road noise, and maybe my hearing is going (at 24 I should have plenty of hearing left), ******** just not there to me. The 6 speed automatic transmission is one of the best I've ever driven. Thank goodness Hyundai hasn't opted for the CVT. The back seat offers good space for 2 adults, and 3 could fit in a pinch. When the back seats are folded down the hatchback becomes quite cavernous. Overall I'm very pleased. There isn't a better car for the price. With Hyundai's 5 year/60,000 mile bumper to bumper and 10 year/100,000 mile warranty it's sure to keep a smile on my face for a long time.
2012 Hyundai Accent SE 6 Speed Automatic
I have owned the 2012 Hyundai Accent SE automatic for just under 1 month and so far so good. It's stylish, sporty, roomy, economical and fun to drive. It can carry myself, 3 adults and 4 carry on luggage very comfortably. It has good cargo room with the seats up and very good cargo room with the seats down. I travel 2-1/2 hours, 120 miles round trip to work 6 days a week and I'm averaging 35 MPG. I only have 2 major complaints, 1) the driver seat is a little too stiff, 2) rear visibility, the rear window could be a little larger for better viewing. The ride is fairly comfortable with moderate roads bumps being felt. The car is peppy enough to keep up with fast moving traffic and it can quickly move out , lane changing is easy. Parking is also very easy with this small car. So far I'm very happy with this car, it takes me to where I want to go and it does it with little amount of fuel, it has power windows & door locks, cruise control, AC and a shift-able automatic for the occasional fun to drive, drive. It can carry large boxes when I have to without fighting with trunk space, plus its a 4 door with plenty of interior space.
Where is the spare....all cars come with a spare.
