After selling my last Accent and moving (my commute is now 47 miles one way) I realized I needed a new beater. I went new for the warranty. While not having a warranty really isn't a big deal to me the pregnant SO had other things to say about it. LOL
My best mileage is about 37mpg. I added an aftermarket headunit as it didn't come with a stereo. Five speed and lightweight this thing is fun to drive.
Future plans are some nice lightweight wheels, a short throw shifter, bass tube and exhaust. Maybe a 2.0t engine swap from a Sonata. :-D

how are you getting on with yours? I'm about to hit 60k on my 2009, only recommended maintenance stuffs.

Sorry, never saw this comment! I just rolled 57k I think. It's been great, throw out bearing sounds like it's going. I haven't even done the recommended maintenance. :( Just oil changes, mostly. Unfortunately I'm missing the finer things in life - like my '98 Cobra and '04 X-Type so this will be going up for sale soon.
