  1. Noisy Rear Seats

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    I'm too lazy to read your post and the other peoples' posts, but I encourage you to make sure the seats are COMPLETELY in the flush-to-the-back position. Lift up the latches and push them to the back to make sure they are seated properly. This is the #1 reason for noisy back seats with these cars.
  2. changing interior light colour?

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    No. They're all surface-mounted LEDs. If you really really really need to do it, fine, but be warned that if you mess up, the odometer is tied to the cluster. If you mess up, you will need a new cluster, which means your odometer will be permanently incorrect. At least I believe the above is...
  3. Tranny won`t go into overdrive!

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Once time, after I had spilled water on the gear lever, the O/D wouldn't turn off. After a day, it dried out and worked fine again. Maybe the detailing got some fluid on the gear lever switch.
  4. Warranty???

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Personal accountability. You're responsible for your own car. Yes, they should have suggested it, but ultimately it's in your best interest to learn as much as you can about your car to avoid getting taken advantage of. The veteran guys on this forum will guide you in the right direction. Lucky...
  5. Warranty???

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    No. It is a routine service. Warranties cover manufacturer's defects, generally. $349 is phenomenal, if that's for the entire 60,000 mile service, including changing all belts. I paid much more, after comparison shopping many places. Labor is the most expensive part of that service.
  6. Would anyone be interested in stock fog lights/fog light bumper?

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    I traded the Accent in for a 2009 Ford Fusion, but I still have the fog light bumper (trim with 2 fog light cutouts in it) and 2 fog lights. The trim is the one that came with my car and it easily swappable with the trim pieces on your cars with no modification necessary. You would need to get...
  7. HID Installation

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    He said, posting his personal information on the website for the world to read.
  8. 09 Accent needs new transmission

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    You need to drop the subframe in order to drop the pan on this car. It's very close, but not close enough.
  9. Annoying clunking from rear

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    This.
  10. Hatchback handle

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Mine's been like that since the 2nd year I've had it. I'm just used to telling me "Let me close the hatch", and I push the handle back towards the car before I close it.
  11. 2008 Accent Maintenance recommendation

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    I'm sure much of the cost of the 60,000 mile service is labor, but for the love of god, shop around. I ended up paying $417.16 for replacing all belts at a Hyundai dealership. Quotes from different Hyundai dealerships varied by about $300 in price. I settled with the one with the lowest price...
  12. what should i do?

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    This car won't go much faster without forced induction. Focus on handling and braking.
  13. NEED you guys help

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    What's the point? They have very very little to do with braking.
  14. Car silently stalls after startup, and then won't start back up.

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Pretty sure nearly all cars are :-\
  15. Brake Problem

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    ^ This. It's not so much that the car lost traction or that the chassis causes horrific understeer. It's more of a problem that the ABS kicks in when completely unnecessary (there was NOT any traction loss). The car just senses emergency braking and panics. The ABS in this car feels like it puts...
  16. Brake Problem

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    I think we do understand that, except the chassis of this car lends itself to such extreme understeer that even with ABS, trying to turn the wheel in such a situation does nothing. Sigh.
  17. Brake Problem

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Same. The ABS on this car is downright dangerous in a bunch of situations. It takes so long to stop the car that you may slam into the back of another stopping vehicle whose ABS system is better.
  18. Hyundai accent 2009 starting but not turning over

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Battery nearly dead?
  19. Steering remote controll!

    MC (2006-2011) Accent
    Yes, but depending on size and weight, shipping is $$$$
