This car is fun to drive. City handling is brisk and responsive. The ride is firm. She cruises well at 80mph -- just keep two hands on the wheel. For me, it was this or the Honda Civic. But if you want a comparable price in the Honda, you'll have to go down to the DX which is $2000-$3000 more than the Accent. Go up to the LX, and price difference increases to almost $5000. Its looks, inside and out, are sedate but handsome. The dashboard is pleasantly basic. My only complaints about this car: acceleration to highway speed is labored and road noise is substantial. In the end, I chose this car for four reasons: 1. a safety (crash test) profile that almost matches the Civic and Corolla; 2. a price that beats all (with that safety rating); 3. a great warranty (10yr/100K mile drivetrain, 7yr/unltd mile rustproofing); 4. a decent build quality (Consumer Reports, J.D. Power). I might get the Civic next time around if the price is less of an issue. For the moment, price *is* an issue, and the Accent won this time.
