What should I look for in a used Hyundai Accent hatchback?

Hyundai has earned a regular slot in the What Car? Reliability Index's top 10 manufacturers, and the good news is that the Accent scores above average for the make.

When it does go wrong, electrical faults are the most common, followed by problems with the axles and suspension. Repairs to the brakes come next, followed by cooling and heating system troubles.
