Worst car to buy - 5 year warranty is scam

published

My Hyundai Accent 2018 is still under factory warranty. Raised the concerns with the dealership but nothing was sorted. Then contacted Hyundai Australia’s and to my surprise they took few weeks to respond back and then kept on asking the same information via emails number of times.
Finally they reused to offer any help. Spoken to CBS in Adelaide and they have advised that as the vehicle was purchased from NSW I need to register consumer complaint in that state.

I am now going to lodge complaint in NSW and seek legal help as well.

Purchased in for $12,000.

Would buy again

published

Bought for a daily commuter three years ago
Economical (under 6 litres per 100km)
Excellent power (100kW) for a normally aspirated 1600
Surprisingly spacious for a family of four, with decent boot for a hatchback
Fuel tank is a "real" 40 litres max, but no big deal
Interior trim has good plastics for the price, feels like a quality build
Main gripe is that the steering which is "sticky" in the centre
Was a bit disappointed that a reversing camera wasn't an available option
Suspension is "sporty" - handles terrifically around town but not great on bumpy roads
Definitely value for money, I'd buy one again

Purchased in at Hyundai Dealers for $15,000.

Broken Radio

published

It’s a cheap car to own, reliable and hasn’t given many issues but I can’t play any discs through the CD player. Have asked the dealership for the code to fix the issue but they want to charge me eighty plus dollars.

Two Hyundai's - both radio's have died just out of warranty.

published

My wife and I were so excited in both buying new Hyundai Accent car's. Unfortunately to our amazement both cars have developed the same audio problems after only some years. I have owned cars for forty three years and I have never had a worse car radio failure in the same model car of mine and my wife's. Replacement price of the radio's has basically put us off and probably ever buying another Hyundai.

Purchased in at Hyundai Dealers for $14,000.

My dream car!

published

Ok so maybe not my dream car but this one is perfect for me my daily commute. A spacious cabin, smooth comfortable ride. Love the Apple Carplay touch display which lets you control your music, maps and podcasts. I've only had it for 6 months now so haven't had a service yet but there's no issues whatsoever. Exceptional value too!

bought the accent in 2016, and just bought the 2019 sport accent . love it

published

This car is super easy to drive, park it in any tight carpark or small space
-its not super wide so doesnt take up heaps of the road when passing on narrow winding roads.
-super super fuel efficient
-fold the seats down in the back and i can fit my large road bike with the wheel off, or my folding bike and heaps of travel gear.
-have traveled basically right around australia in my 2016 accent, and have just bought the new 2019 model
-lots of space in the front seats (im 6f and heaps of room to stretch my legs).
-i wouldnt buy any other brand of car since owning a hyundai.

Purchased in for $17,500.

Good on the open road but hard-riding around town

published

Bought the car new and owned the car for almost 19 years. Very economical, reliable car. Maintenance has been scheduled servicing and very little else. Plenty of carrying capacity. A lot of road noise. The shock absorbers and the seats are a bit hard. Foot on the clutch required for starting. Great value for money.

Great to drive

published

I have had my Hyundai for 2 years now and I bought it new. It is a great little car to drive and I find it very economical on fuel. Handling is good and is very comfortable. I wish there was more little storage areas inside the car as it is difficult to find anywhere to put documents or anything you need to access quickly - I had a Toyota Yaris and there was little areas all over the place so I miss that.
The only real criticism I have of the Accent is the poor turning circle. It is almost impossible to do a U-turn so it turns into a 3 point reverse/turn and I would recommend not trying to do a U-turn at traffic lights or you will be in trouble and have to back up to complete it. Otherwise though this little hatch is good value for money.
