2008 Hyundai Accent
There are 7 user reviews for the SE 3-Door trim shown below
- Sips gas, well equipped, looks great, 5 star value for money
- its a sub-compact - it is what it is
So we bought a new 2008 SE (loaded) 5 speed- hooked a fully packed Uhaul to the back end and drove 2,800 miles across the country. WOW!
Gas mileage 22mpg. It was a pleasure to drive. Other than being a bit cramped, the car was fantastic. Can wait to drive it without the trailer.
This is our second Accent (previous was bare bones 2001).
Comment: the 2008 has a backseat that folds flat. the 2009 only reclines. Hyundai dropped the ball by making this design change. If cargo space is an issue, buy a 2008....read morehide

- WHAT A GREAT DEAL. DEALERS IN LV ARE GIVING THEM AWAY
- Plastic is cheap, but what the hell, $7.458 with a/c
I bought my daughter a 02 Accent brand new. It never went back for even a burned out light bulb. After 70k I put on new brakes, belts, and had new tires installed. I'm trying to work out a deal for another one.
My brother also bought a new one. He claims the secret to our happy Hyundai is I have changed the oil/filter every 3000k. His currently is on around 145k miles and still going strong....read morehide

- Great Looks, great A/C, great engine reliability.
- No power..none... Plastic inside scratches easily. Engine High rev noise after 3500rpm.
I bought this car mainly for the gas mileage. So far my best gas mileage has been 25mpg. Not good for a car this size and engine this small...great repair service at my dealer..If buying to save gas get a yaris instead.

- Great fuel economy and very cute!!
- Small gas tank...and no cruise control
We just purchased a 2008 Accent Se 3 door and i love it! We bought it for my husband to commute with and i seem to drive it more than he does!! We got the 5 speed and the clutch is so easy, you barely have to touch it! My only complaint is there is no cruise control, we bought one that was pretty much fully loaded, but it has no cruise! Also seems that the gas tank is pretty small.... Other than those two things i love this car!! Its cute, sporty, can park anywhere, all around a great car!!
We bought it from Plant Hyundai in Las Vegas, this was my first car that i've ever purchased, most i just payed cash for. I told the salesman i wanted to pay 13000 for it, he totally took me off subject, he said "lets get the payment right", i ended up paying full sticker price, which i am NOT hppy about! Again, this was my first car and i really didnt know what to expect. I'm disappointed that he never listened to me and sold me the car for the sticker price, no one pays sticker except me, i guess......read morehide

- Good highway, lower than average city. Love the sporty appearance. GREAT handling! Shocked by it...
- Scratchy plastic, cheap tires, otherwise I love it.
I can't get over the handling on this little beast. I love the look of the wheel package. Good highway ride, if a bit noisy over 75MPH. Built in speed limiter possibly? Very sporty, peppy, loses a bit of steam over 80MPH. Superb long distance comfort tho on a Phoenix to Sante Fe roundtrip in 18 hours. You try it!!! The a/c is great in 118F days in AZ.
Dealership service is very good. Had some issues with an iPod adapter for the stereo. Was misinformed by salesman that it was for all makes of stereo in the Accent, but later found out it was only for the unit in the sunroof package. The manager of the dealership got me an aftermarket stereo & all I paid for was the intsallation of the adapter. The parts manager told me I would have had to pay for the top of the line Kenwood, so I was thrilled that they went out of their way. Gave me the original unit back, said they'd reinstall it if I decided to sell the car.
Blew a tire within 2 days of ownership, found the Hanook model was discontinued. Was told I'd have to pay for 2 new tires. The manager of the dealership offered to give me a tire off another 2007 on the lot and he'd worry about the tire situation on that car.
Highly reccomend Hyundai's to all who will listen. Above & beyond service....read morehide

- Great design, great speed for 1.6L engine, love sporty short-shifter on 5 speed, suspension is GR8!!
- sound-system should improve for SE no disc brakes on '08 need to brake in engine to improve gas use
Do love the way the Charcoal grey looks in the sun: almost a mixture of blue and grey. Also love the spoiler on this car! DIG the 16inch alloy wheels. ONLY 10 gallon gas tank... very CHEAP to fill!
