Oh , don't you worry about the after sales service and other issues IF the car does get discontinued, Hyundai is the second biggest company in India - they will take good care of you - BTW - a friend of mine bought an Accent GLE - white colour 3 days ago. So the car is still selling decent volumes - I do not think its getting discontinued anytime soon.. Cheers !!!

Thanks again for the replies. Well I am still inclined to buy Accent and will be doing so in a month. What are the freebies or accessories did your friend get on his new Accent GLE? Dealers are not offering much. I am demanding atleast a mp3 player, free insurance, foot mats etc.
What do you say?

In Bangalore you can negotiate for an MP3 Player (usually the base blaupunkt one with remote) with 4 speakers. Also can negotiate for free floor mats and boot mats. Accent GLE does not come with mud flaps so you can nego for that. If I were you i will nego for free painting of door handles, OVRMs and rear garnish.

My dear friend, accent GLE is a very beautiful car. one of my friend who owns it says, it glides like an aeroplane ( dont know whatever that means). I too have opted for a car knowing it is being phased out, what you like matters and secondly Hyundai service is the best in the country even better than MUL, so no worries.

With regards to freebies, you can send me a PM and i will tell you how to negotiate, i have loads of experience in negotiating with these 3 Hydie dealers. Btw, forget about the MP3 player, it sucks actually

I think he got free Insurance and 5K cash discount - actually not many freebies because its already a very low priced car - so be happy with whatever you get.

There is a difference in all states and depends dealer to dealer

I am planning to keep the car (Accent GLE) after I buy next month for at least five years. Can I expect any resale value on that later?

Dude, do not worry about the resale value. We all buy cars not to sell, but to get the maximum possible excitement out of it - utility-wise

Every year, at least 4 new models are introduced (all manufacturers put together), and definitely the resale value of any car you buy now will take a beating 5 years down the line. In my opinion, cab company proprietors can worry about their cars' resale value.

I own an accent gle, just over 2 months old. I simply love this beauty!

by and by, what color have u zeroed on?? Real earth and bright silver are good looking. BLACK is stunning!

Cheers,
giga

Well, I was looking for bright colors (other than silver and real earth). I saw Accent GLE (displayed in showroom)in Dark blue and simply loved it. I may go for Charming Grey or Potomac Blue.

I own an Accent for last 6 yrs and done 41K and this is absolutely fine. My sister owns Accent too and has clocked 115K and still going on :-).

For this budget, you may also want to try the Renault Logan 1.4.

Ford Ikon is not out of production. Recently they came out with a new model named Ford Ikon IKool(Comes with Sony Audio, better interiors etc.) So it is better that you take this into consideration too as the drive quality and stability of Ikon is better than Accent. Accent is a good and smooth car. Spare parts are cheaper compared to Ikon. Its bit more comfortable compared to Ikon. I have never heard of anybody complaining about Accent after 50000 km. Getting an Accent for 5.1 is a very good deal. Also resale value of Accent is much better than Ikon.

@joseph - the Ikon has a better backseat and is bigger than the Accent. It is also much better to drive and more fuel efficient.
Spares and maintainance should be similar for both.
