VEHICLE STORY

I never would have thought I'd be in an Accent. But when I was shopping around for a fun, small, light hatch that still came with a manual transmission, The Hyundai Accent was one of the contenders on my list. I really did like the styling and I saw through the "mom car" mentality everyone has for it. I also liked that I knew what I wanted to do with it and wanted to be unique. Since the day of purchase this car has been nothing but a smile to drive. Sure it's not "fast", but it also depends on what you definition of fast is. I love rowing through the gears on mountain roads using my momentum to carry me through the corners. I've upgraded the car mostly in the suspension department and it's really helped the car stay more stable at speed. I have much planned for this little car named Mindy.
