Trying to get some feedback on this particular model. One is somewhat falling in my lap, and I'm trying to see if I should pet it or kick it away. Looking at a 2009 Hyundai Accent Hatchback, "MC" body code as pictured. (But I believe they're all the same 2006-2011.) It has just under 150k miles, comes with a 1.6L 4-banger and a 5-speed manual. I know Elantra of this era is considered the best Elantra ever made. Does this fame for a reliable commuter spread onto the Accent too? Since these engines are more oldschool (pre-GDI era), I'm hoping they're more reliable. Any weak spots in this drivetrain/powertrain combo? Thoughts? Any personal experiences you can share?
