Default All about the 2003 accent

The 2003 accent gl might be an ugly tiny car but I drive 1200 miles a week and just recently hit 230k. 300k coming soon. This car will hit 1m miles. ** I treat my accent like a baby, oil change every 2400 miles and top all the fluids off weekly. New tranny at 200k miles as a present but it wasn't a necessity.

Thumbs up 2000 Accent

Red Rover is at 532 500 km (approx. 333 000 miles). Oil changes every 25 000km and I put anything in it. Sometimes light diesel oil sometimes 20/50 mineral oil but usually 15/40 semi/ synthetic. So far Red has had 1 fuel pump, 1 left side CV joint, 1 second hand steering pump, 1 second hand alternator,1 new clutch and gets a new water pump every 100 000k with the new timing belt. HA!!! Doesn't blow smoke or drip oil and drives straight - never had a wheel alignment - despite hitting a roo last year. I would also recommend Continental tyres. I don't know what the new 13" Eco3s are like yet but the old ContiComforts got 120 000k out of the front per set and 315 000k out of the back. I don't rotate largely because Red gives me no reason to.

Default Longevity of Hyundai Accent

I have a 2006 Hyundai Accent GLS automatic transmission and it just passed 202,000 miles and recently failed emissions, so I'll probably let it go and move on to new used car.

I have a 2009 Accent, auto trans, with just over 230,000 miles. The timing belt broke at about 95,000 miles and cost lots to fix. I'm due for another belt, so I'm accepting cash donations
