2004 Hyundai Accent

I'm picking one up this week, if the snow doesn't stop me.
I haven't seen too much regarding Accents on the boards ,so I guess I'll be one of the first. I don't have a LOT of resources, but I can get innovative w/ materials.
Anybody have any previous experience? Anything been tried and failed?

Good luck with the weather.

I just got the Accent into my garage for the first time. I'm moving from a '92 Camaro RS to an economy car. I didn't plan to right now, but my fuel pump went and my 27 mile one way commute hasn't done the Camaro any good. At least it's going to a good home. A 14 year-old kid and his father are going to take 2 years to bring it back for the kid's 16th b-day. I'm glad it'll be a father-son project. I couldn't ask for a
better reason to let it go.

I notice your Accent is automatic. That's going to make things a bit more challenging for you!

Was the Camaro automatic or manual? Sounds like it went to a good home.

Traffic's a problem in my commute. I've fought w/enough clutch pedals in my time. I'll give up 1 mpg for some convenience. My windows are manual, so I've eliminated that weight. I don't have cruise, so I'll stay a little more connected to the acceleration. I'll be fine. Best mpg in the Camaro was 24.something, so I already have that beat. I don't plan to go nuts.
