What is the problem getting the OCS sensor fixed? There was a recall for it. Go in and have the recall taken care of, like I did. (Actually, my dealer told me about the recall before I got the notice, when I came in for an oil change, and did the recall then. Maybe you need to find a dealer with a better service department?)
I am curious... how many of those mechanics who call the Accent a "100k" car have examined the redesigned 2006 Accent from top to bottom? And how many mechanics are we talking about here?

"Don't let your perception and everything you read fool you Check out the real story yourself..."
I guess having a 1997 Kia RIO where the dash completing detached itself while driving isn't "real" enough. Do a Google search and read many "satisfied" customers who had similar experiences with both the RIO and Accent of that year.

Last time I checked this is 2006.
There is a big difference between current Hyundais and products pre-98. I don't have to tell you but check out all of the stellar awards Hyundai/Kia have won, especially as of late.

I kind of doubt your 1997 Kia Rio had that problem. Because there is no such thing as a 1997 Kia Rio.
I searched on "1997 Accent dash" and scrolled through the first 10 pages before giving up. I found no mentions of any kind of dash-detaching problem in those pages. Maybe you could post a link or two in the discussion related to the Accent of that vintage.

Sometimes the fingers work faster than the brain.
If you find any of those dash separations for the 1997 Accent (a totally different design than the '97 Sephia), feel free to post them in the "old" Accent discussion.

so with hyundais cool looking accent se costing just under 15k, does anyone know what the cost will be for the elantra?

Hyundai announced the price of the '07 Elantra would "start under $14,000." My own take on that, considering the source (marketeers), is that it means the no-options GLS will be about $13,995 plus destination, which would add another $550-600 or so. Then add options like the A/C + stereo package, or the Premium package (the one I'd want at minimum) that includes the A/C and stereo plus power accessories and nicer interior features. I figure that kind of Elantra will be somewhere around $16k MSRP including destination. All just conjecture of course, based on option prices on other Hyundais. That would slot the Elantra in pretty well between the Accent GLS (est. $12,500 starting price for the '07s once they drop ABS from the standards list) and the '07 Sonata GLS (about $17,700 starting price incl. destintation).

well considering there is no difference in purchase price of a hyundai and a toyota/honda why the big difference in resale value?
