What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Hyundai Accent

Hyundai Accent Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 2dr Hatch 110-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
5 years/60000 miles bumper-to-bumper warranty, plus a 10 years/100000 miles power train warranty. Hopefully Hyundai makes a good enough product that I would not have to make use of this long warranty.
2010 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 1.6L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
So far 28,000 KM in I have no issues, I have been rear ended once which developed no Major issues after the repair and these last couple days I plugged in at -40 Celc and the car drove fine. I did have to turn the heat a little higher to keep warm.
2009 2dr Hatch 110-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
WELL MADE
2005 2dr Hatch 104-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
At 120k miles it still drives like the day it was new! Performed only one repair except from scheduled maintenance. Rear drum brake calipers were leaking and replaced under warranty.
2004 2dr Hatch 104-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
the accent is an extremely reliable car starting in its 2nd generation and is very easy to work on.
2002 4dr Sedan 105-horsepower 1.6L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
This car just keeps going and going and going with so few repairs in between. I'm now in my 11th year of ownership with just under 125k miles. The most expensive repair for the car has been the scheduled maintenance.

2011 4dr Sedan 148-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
Was sold on this feature. Seems to have a decent Module history. Not enough experience to rate directly at this time.
2010 4dr Sedan 168-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
More solid off the lot than the Civic SI. Car feels built very well. Very impressed with Mitsubishi and still amazed that this car is only 22k.
2010 4dr Sedan 168-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
This car has been a track and autocross beast from day 1 because hey, free car. It's seen many long trips, including an Austin to Seattle loop via as many scenic roads we could fit in. And it just doesn't break. Maintain it well and it will run like a charm.
2009 4dr Sedan 168-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
I have owned my lancer for almost three years now,it has 59k miles and I have had 0 issues, I am still using the same bulbs, brakes and rotors that came with the car. my friends 08 328i has already had his window motor go out at 65k amongst other things
2008 4dr Sedan 152-horsepower 2.0L I4
CVT FWD
10 year warranty and over 25 years of rally competitions, need I say more. To give that kind of warranty proves that Mitsubishi stands behind their vehicles.
2008 4dr Sedan 152-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
Has run flawlessly so far in the 15,000km of ownership. Servicing costs are minimal, 15,000km service interval. Use of timing chain, means no expensive timing belt changes.
2005 4dr Sedan 120-horsepower 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have had the car for more than 5 years with 130,000 km on it and have never had to do any work to the car, other than routine maintenance every 12,000 km.
