The first accents didn't handle rough roads very well. If you live in an
area where you do a lot of driving over rough roads, you may develop
problems with the body and suspension which make the car unsafe to drive
while being prohibitively expensive to repair.
If you live in an urban area and have an automatic, you may also develop
transmission problems. While better in quality than the km176
transmissions previously used by Hyundai, I saw a significant number of
failures in Accent transmissions.
If you don't think your circumstances will bring you to either of these
problems, keep driving and be happy.
