There are three separate recalls for road salt damage to the coil spring and/or control arm on 1995-1997 vehicles. Not all recalls may apply to all models so check with your local dealer to see if your vehicle is included. Our technicians remind us that if recall repairs are not completed to your satisfaction y...

Hyundai Accent Reviews
I also have had the same issue with the coil packs/ignition coil. Have had to replace now going on the 3rd time and of course no warranty. Also the Fort Wayne Hyundai Happy Car Store Service Department is a horrible place to go, I will not buy another one.
A/C is so loud you can't hear anything when on high. Interior is mostly some sort of cheap imitation rubber/plastic. Cushion for seats are terrible. Keeping aligned is impossible always pulling to one side. Extremely rough ride. Noisy interior from road noise. Do like the option of electronic shift and great gas mileage.sound system sucks. BT horrible at listening or identifying speech and names from address book . Give it a overall rating of 2.7 if that exists.
I bought my 2002 Accent GL 1.6 DOHC A/T and have had no real problems until the speed sensors and pulse generators have gone out. I have replaced them several different times and still every 1- 1/2 to 2 years the problem occurs again. Even now I have to make an appointment to fix them again. Basically the car doesn't want to shift right. The first time it happened was driving 65 miles an hour and had a huge clunking noise--now it is not wanting to shift out of 1st gear or shift at all. The rpms go up but it doesn't shift. I started having problems more when I turned on A/C 4 to 5 years ago. The mechanics have told me I could replace the computer or electrical harness but not sure if it would fix my cars problems. It is easier and cheaper to just repair sensors, could they be shorting out of something else? Anyone else having problems like this? The only other problem I have had is that the radio/cd player has shorted out-I get error codes Err 01 or Err 02, still works unless you hit a bump and it switches between radio and cd player. Mileage was very good highway but city driving sucked.
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.
