Hey fellows
I need some opinions, recently my aunt passed away and I inherited some items from her estate, one is a 2013 Hyundai Accent
and I'm looking for ideas on what to do with the car???

upon getting it
I reminded myself of Jay Leno’s quote, “ Driving a slow car fast is more fun than driving a fast car slow. ”....the car looks good on the outside but man its 90's GM on the inside and I honestly wasn’t expecting too much in terms of handling but once I hit the winding roads of southern Wisconsin. I was pleasantly surprised. With its responsive steering and taught handling, it could take a fair amount of thrashing for a compact car.

Sell it and get a Silver FR-S or a Pearl Blue BRZee... but that's just me! laugh.gif (hey that rhymes!)

But seriously, it looks like a good grocery getter/econo car. I'd say keep it unless you were thinking of getting something quirkier like that Honda whatchamacallit with the shifter on the console where the A/C is.

But if you have the money man... go get that friggin' FR-Zee what are you waiting for! laugh.gif

Did you like your aunt?
Cherish it, maintain it, and drive it.


Not sure what you want out of that car, but suggestions to do anything to the car other than drive it or sell it is pretty bunk in my opinion.

Didn't mean to be insensitive but, when my grandma passed away in Dec 2016, all I got was a huge 5,000 dollar bill for her funeral and one for her nursing home. O_O

Let go of all that emotional mumbo jumbo objects like cars are attached with, and be happy.

I'm sure that's what your aunt wants you to be, from wherever she is up there in the great Spirit in the Sky. sweatingbullets.gif user posted image

Do you like how the car drives? Is the car economically viable for your situation? Great, just drive it into the ground.

Do you not like how the car drives? Is the car not economically viable for your situation? Great, just sell it or trade it towards something that is.

And for the love of all that is right in the world don't blindly take the suggestion of someone on the forums as to what car to get if you do decide to sell it. Go out and actually test-drive stuff if it's something new. Go do your research in advance if it's something older and you plan on buying from Craigslist or the like.

Telling him to sell it and buy an 86 is just... facepalm.gif Goddammit Xiao.

What Sensation! and Nomake Wan said. Keep it if you like it, sell it if you don't. Pretty cut and dry. If you were close to your aunt, maybe you'll want to keep it for that reason too, but that's all you.

haha! Glad you found what you were looking for man. Sorry about the avalanche of weirdness this thread devolved to (it was xiao's fault). You know what we say... IDW we know drama™ laugh.gif

Personally though if I had a BRZ I'd put some dank blue underglows to make it look like a little space hovermobile. That thing's gonna stop being produced one day, and before it does... I wanna say I made mine Fast & Furious with some pimp neon LED thingamabobs! laugh.gif cool.gif

NOS & stickers is a little bit too much tho... fear2.gif

Now that would be cool!

BRZ is on my list, that or an Mitsubishi Lancer EVO,

i'm car shopping now since my Chrysler 200 super S ( yes a 200 Super S is a real thing...it was a dealer package back in 2011 to 2013 ) was totaled.....I'm looking at replacing it but Super S models are soooo hard to find

Many Thanks, I still miss her to this day

I've desideed to keep it and i made some small updates to it.

while it's lacking the tech side, it makes up for it with it's handling & power - to - weight ratio.
at 138HP it's very livly for a small lightweight car
