Nice review pal. My woes with the car, vague steering wheel, and probably the worst brakes ever typical Hyundai trait. Woody pedal feel, goes from no brakes to sudden wheel locking. And man does that car shift lanes under heavy braking, very scary.

Accent is one of the few diesel cars i wouldn't mind having. (No objection aganist the Octavia 1.9TDI either) The pedal position of the Santro is also awkward and the feeling in the ankle after a 60km drive is anything but nice.

Brakes are much better on the CRDi than those on the petrols...

Yeah it still likes the lane changes during severe braking....nothing a good driver cant control though.
