    I can go with auto or manual transmission...doesnt matter much to me.
    Looking for reliability and good gas mileage primarily. Please tell
    me how you like yours. Thanks.

    I'd like to know too. I posted the same question a few months back and
    didn't get nary a response. I'm torn between the Accent and Kia Rio.

    For only a few bucks more, consider the Elantra. Much more car for the
    money, IMO. Reliable too.

    Check if the engine has a timing chain or belt, if it has a belt avoid like
    the plague !

    Have an '02 Accent L 1.5L 5-spd. Consistent 40MPG (maybe 35 on city streets).
    No frills. I love the car.

    Liked it so much, I bought an '04 5-spd 1.6L. Bit more ooomph and almost
    as good MPG. Just as much fun to drive as the '02.

    Neither has been back to the dealer and most maintenance has been easy to handle
    and parts available thru any parts house.

    Keeping my eye out for a third as a spare. LOL

    Now is the time to buy the Elantra. The new model is to be coming out
    soon and they're heavily rebated. If you're okay with waiting, expect
    the same on the Accent a little down the road as a new Accent is in
    the works too.

    I have an '02 Accent L manual trans with 146k miles.
    I only had one expensive repair to replace a bad gasket that
    caused a major oil leak. I think I have maybe spent a total $600 on
    It's probably the best car I have ever owned.

    I had an '06 Elantra 5 door manual trans. I sold it with 35k miles on
    It never caused me any problems whatsoever. I loved that car and
    hated to
    get rid of it.
