The 2011 Accent we purchased has had to be taken for service three times for engine coil failures in the past six months. My advice is to pass up any used 2011 Accents.

I just got this car used and ever since I got it there has been something else wrong. Could be model or the previous owner I am not 100% sure. However main problems I am dealing with now include airbag light constantly on and replacing the coils in the engine.

Can't really stand my car the engine light keeps coming on even after getting it fixed, there's always another problem arising with this car. Really tired of it. The only plus is good milage!
