Hyundai Accent Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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.
2010 2dr Hatch 110-horsepower 1.6L I4

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.
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.

good reputation
2009 4dr Hatch 158-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Proven toyota reliability.
2006 4dr Hatch 118-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
This catagory is the #1 reason we looked at Toyota when we were new car shopping in 2006. Dependability and Resale. As I mentioned earlier, we're at 82,000 miles and have kept on top of the manufacturer suggested regular maintenance - oil/filters changes, transmission/transfer case fluids changes, coolant and refrigerant changes, brakes at 45,000miles, etc. We have had 100% dependability with this little rascal and it has NOT failed to start and give us a ride,,,, ever. The Toyota Matrix delivers what we had hoped and what we expected it would.
2006 4dr Hatch 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have had no issues with the Matrix. Never had to bring for repairs on anything, just oil and filter changes.
2005 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Excellent reviews, have not had any problems so far.
2005 4dr Hatch 123-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic AWD
We have had uniformly good experience with Toyotas.
2005 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
so far no real mechanical issues. There was a hard start issue which Toyota/dealership eventually admitted and corrected after many attempts and denial that this problem existed
2004 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Toyotas are known for reliability and durability; this car replaced a 14-year-old Toyota with 180,000 miles (and going strong). I bought this Matrix with 73,000 miles, and expect to get over 200,000 out of it.
2004 4dr Hatch 130-horsepower 1.8L I4

Had the car for 4 years never had major repair.
