The Toyota Vios or the Hyundai Accent are the two most popular models in the B-Segment Sedan market right now and in the past as well. Wonder which comes out on top? Let’s start with Toyota Vios vs Hyundai Accent on Philkotse.com! With regards exterior, the Vios is a much wider. About styling, I would prefer the Toyota Vios because of its new design whereas the Accent in sedan form does look good. The higher trim variants of the Vios also come with fancier stuff like larger allow wheels, a pair of fog-lights, and a rear spoiler. In terms of interior, both the Vios and the Accent have USB and AUX ports, Bluetooth connectivity, hands-free calling, AM/FM radio and a decent sound system. All variants of the new 2019 Hyundai Accent only comes with a 3.8” LCD Display Radio with a USB and AUX port. On concerning engine and performance, I consider the Vios falls short. Particularly, the current Hyundai Accent comes in two engine options: a 1.4 liter Gasoline and a 1.6 liter Diesel. On the other hand, Toyota Vios appears in a 1.3 liter and a 1.5 liter. In conclusion, pick a CRDi Accent should you be more adventurous. Otherwise, opt for the Vios if you prefer on-board entertainment.

I have a 2008 Hyundai Accent. About 4 months ago, it started to present a bunch of issues over the course of a week. I'll list them, to keep it short. Usually doesn't start in park Usually starts in neutral (if not, letting the car move a little in neutral usually fixed it) Usually doesn't go in reverse (some days it would work fine, other days, it wouldn't go in reverse at all) No PRNDL lights on dash (the area is blank where it usually is) Not shifting gears properly, downshifting suddenly when driving, starting in 2nd gear "Lurching" when put into drive or reverse (when working) Check engine light reading the "neutral safety switch" Some unrelated issues that I don't think are relevant, but I'll list them anyways. This car is a piece of garbage, afterall. TPSM light on Airbag light on The following repairs were attempted (in this order) to solve the problem. It was mostly fixed the problem, temporarily (for about 3 months, and now it's worse than ever) Neutral safety switch replaced Transmission output sensor replaced Transmission input sensor replaced Transmission oil pan replaced (it was cracked) Transmission oil drained + replaced As of today, I took the car to a transmission specialist. I believed it was a wiring issue, considering I'd replaced nearly every "part" that it could have been, besides the transmission. He too told me he believed it was a wiring issue. After looking at it for a whole 4 days, he calls me and just tells me "the transmission has an internal error", and that it needs to be replaced. The PRNDL switch is a symptom of transmission failure. I pressed about it a little bit, asking why he thought it was a transmission failure, and he gave me a loop around and didn't say anything else. I am not a car guy, so please tell me if I'm wrong, but this doesn't make any sense to me. Why would a PRNDL switch error reading on my check engine light be a symptom of a failed transmission? And why did I go 4 months with it driving nearly fine? Any, ANY help would be appreciated. I'm not really sure where to turn.
