My first Accent 1998 went for 199,987 miles before I got rid of it due to
cost of body repair(accident) and maintenance repairs(brakes, tires, timing
belt, tune-up) all having to be done at the same time for inspection.
Since there was 0/0 finance on a new one I got a 2003 Accent, it now has
144,231 miles on it with only a spark sensor going bad(needed a tow)and a
tie rod .
Other then regular maintenance(tune-ups, timing belts, struts,tires, front
brakes and rotors) the cost and reliability of the Hyundai is very good.
