for my personal view, accent is a very good car in 60k price range, compare to KIA where Hyundai they have a factory in Malaysia and hence the accessories is cheaper.
Now, the top car sales in Malaysia is
1. toyota
2. Hyundai Very Happy
3. Honda
KIA.... dunno rank x ?? Shocked

I guess u won't choose for Protong car if compare to Hyundai since both the price are almost same. Since urs is 1st car, of cuz u must choose a car that can last longer ... so it's worth to choose Accent rather than Protong. Razz
Accent is using gas absorber in rear and front, which is much more stable if compare to Protong (using hydraulic). Acceleration is quite good (i just know manual... auto i not sure) as i can simply overrun other cars in road... and it's steady even in high speed. And, the car body is using high quality material to build, unlike Protong, if langgar.. sure kemek. Evil or Very Mad
For my case, the FC is consider good (average rm0.09 - 0.11) in city and rm0.07 in highway. Just follow 1 theory, don't ever press the oil pedal tooo hard suddenly... it's good to press it start from soft and slowly applying pressure on it. Wink
Service and maintenance quality... no need to say lar.... how to compare with Protong ?? good and expert service are provided..
Well, u might see a lot of problems regarding Accent in this forum, but pls keep in mind that most of the problems are occured in the early batch of Accent, now it's consider come to 4th or 5th batchs, so overall should be no major problem. Twisted Evil

If u reli wanna order Accent, i suggest u go for HQ at Jln Ipoh. Don't go to such dealer or branches... as i had terrible experience on it ... Evil or Very Mad

if u order an Auto, should be get it within 2 weeks, but if manual.. mayb 1 month.

Don't get the U-cool and semi leather, as U-cool is very cheap and useless, go for V-cool, u will feel the different..
For semi leather, DON'T get it, i heard from the dealer that their semi leather is very cheap quality... it's better u get it from outside..

So as conclusion, Accent is a nice car for 60k price range... as i heard next year the Accent (not onli accent, is all cars) price won't drop... but mayb will increase somemore to keep promoting our Protong car mar..

PS : did u know that , Accent is the best selling car in worldwide for 1.5-1.6cc car ? I read it from internet as well as newspaper.

yes, wilson are right
if u only consider the 1.5cc to 1.6cc range entry level sedan
then Hyundai Accent is value of money Laughing

HI all,

I see that a few of you here are ex-Waja owners. To me, Waja definitely win hands down when it comes to cabin space compared to Accent. However, I was told by the SA that Accentís cabin space is comparable to Vios and Wira. Is that true? But when I sit on the back seat of Accent, I do feel itís a bit cramped, even though I donít normally push my driverís seat way to the back. Pls share your experience / comments on this. Well, trying to make myself happy lah hereÖsince Iím always looking for Accent cars on the road (since booking mine) and each time I see one (actually still donít see a lot on the road) I feel the passenger area looks a bit small loh.

Another thing, I didnít actually get to try out the leather seat and see how it blends in with the interior. Hope itís nice and gives it a touch of class.


Cheers,
TKJ

Majority of first time car buyer buy car because of looks, cheap but don't know got quality or not. That's why still got lots of 1st time car buyer get Proton. After they drive and own Proton for couple of months, then they curse this and that and swear will never buy another low quality product. That's when all these Korean makes save them and save their life.


WELL YOU CANNOT BLAME ALL THE FIRST TIME CAR BUYERS for buying malaysian cars.!!! Rolling Eyes
our government wants us to support malaysian products--mah!!!
that is why the TAX is high for foreign cars!!!!
Most ppl like me hate TAX!! Laughing Laughing Laughing
my first car was a perodua kancil, a malaysian made car, i bought it coz' i needed the car for transportation, protection from rain, all the basic needs for the use of a car. As a starter, malaysian car looks good for a few years until you have more money to buy a better car like accent Cool Cool
but that was long time ago, now the car market is so competitive, the price for a malaysian car and a foreign car is just about RM2000 to RM3000 difference, therefore ppl nowadays have to look and be more demanding and do more research (test drive and etc) before buying a car , thanks to AFTA. if not, you get screwwed!!!! Shocked Shocked

Just checked the Kahbintang website. The price for Accent Auto w luxury package is also RM75k. I was interested in Accent but now with price increase, I might just look at other options. Plus Spectra comes with ABS and EBD.
