nope, mine has been pretty good..lets see
2002 Accent, basic model, no A/C or frills
Currently at 127,000 miles
Timing belt was changed around 90,000, I forgot about it, I am lucky it
Original tires went 40,000, will need new ones VERY soon.
Front brakes at 90,000
I had a problem with rear brakes sticking to the drums when parking brake
was left set for a few days, I removed the brake dust and put it back
together, no parts changed since they looked like new, the sticking is much
better so far.
Oil dipstick tube broke around 100,000 miles..annoying oil leak, but cheap.
Drivers side floor rug has a hole, floor is fine, just the rug under the
The only time this car let me down big time was around 100,000 miles, it
dropped dead on the highway..the crank position sensor failed, the job
wasn't a huge expense but the towing and inconvenience made me quite
unhappy, but oh well, things DO break.
I did have some front end work done but that was due to an accident, it
would have damaged most any car about the same way so I won't hold that
I have high hopes of getting plenty of use out of this thing still, oh and I
did teach my 2 daughters to drive a manual trans on this and the clutch
survived, so it must be pretty tough.
Any high mileage accent drivers out there? How long do these things last? My
Accent replaced a 1993 Honda Civic that went 297,000 miles without any major
calamities.. the camshaft broke at 297k but the engine was pretty well worn
out by then anyway, I was planning on retiring it at 300,000. I gave it away
to someone who needed it since I was pretty tired of it by then and the
interior was worn out, but the rest was still in good shape, it's still on
the road with a junkyard engine in it.
Any chance my Accent will last as long?
