Bought this car new. Was driving 150 miles a day back and forth to work. Needed a cheap car that had a long warranty as I was racking up miles on car I was driving pretty quick. Did normal maintenance up to 35k miles. Took to dealer with a/c problem. Compressor bad, headlights peeling chrome inside, trans slip in 3rd gear. Repaired all but the trans. Was told to drive it till trans went out and get it replaced. 55k now and still slips. Other than that, been a good car. Averages 35mpg on highway.
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 nave no reverse and wish they have a recall. its a known problem that they wont fix at all
I live in a cold, winter salted area of USA. That said, from the day I bought my car, there is a belt squeel when I start it in wet or winter conditions. Have brought it in more than one time over the years and all have said it is just water condensation(it does stop after being driven for a while). But years later the same noise is present and it is very annoying! The breaks also squeel when first started. The hood of my car has almost rusted through in one spot, and I've never had a car rust so fast. The electrical is also not working correctly as the clock has goes on and off on it's own at will and the airbag stays lit. The car is wonderful on gas and other than the problems above it has been a very reliable vehicle for 7 years! I would recommend it as a second vehicle or a vehicle for around the town but it is much to small for a family and for people who are taller in stature. I have for the most part been very happy with it!
There was a recall of this car below is the proof. You should check things out before u say there is no recall's. As u can see it says these malfunctions can lead to crashes.
