Default My Dad's Accent Gls - Aug 2001

hi guys , here is review of my dad's hyundai accent gls which is 3.5 years old.

bought the car from a dealer in new mumbai, got a discount of 27000/- on the car. at that time dint think it was bad. did not fall into the trap of buying accesories from them as i know they charge exorbhitantly.

the car's runs about 44 kms for six days a week from and was driven by me till 2002 then by my dad till diwali 2002 then have a driver who drives the car very well.

the tyres are stock. - R13 175/70

colour of the car - grey.

bought a new JVC deck for the car and the system is good enough for my parents to enjoy their drive from home to office and back listening to their collection of old songs.

as far as the performance of the car is concerned, it hasnt given any major problems till now, be it suspension or engine. the overall ride in my car is quite smooth and except for the small minor problems, i have been quite satisfied customer.

about the safety of the car, i have one incident to share with you all. my dad was driving the car and was waiting at a signal to take a left. a tempo fellow came quite near my dad but my dad thought he might want to go straight. when the signal turned green the tempo fellow suddenly took a left and banged onto the front right driver's side door. thanks to the beam in the door that accent has my dad was saved, the door was so badly smashed that it woudnt open and if it was any other smaller car or for that matter a maruti, it woudnt have sustained such a impact and my dad came out unscathed.

the headlights have started to dim and we are putting the new crystal lights and hope we will have better illumination.

so for all in our family we love our car as it is good enough for all of us.

i have wriiten this review as a lay person so pls forgive if i havent been able to keep upto fellow bhpians mark of wrting top class reviews.
