Hyundai Accent performance
I might have a solution. I have the same problem. I just got an 09 accent and I think it is going to be a great project car to performance up but have problems finding parts because it is so new. I found a company that can help us with our problem. They are called KFX Performance, it is a specialty company for Korean aftermarket car parts. The only problem the representative told me, which you can get his info. on the website, is that they are having trouble bringing out the parts because I believe he said of either patent or demand problems. He did state that soon they are going to put the parts on sale. When I talked to him on the phone I stated that they would have plenty of people buying their parts because of the growing accent community, So do me a favor and help me spread the word so we can get some good parts going for this car, I am with you on the performance thing. The representative stated that in the future they are going to bring out the headers and possible turbo kit, I know nice. They offer headers now for a 1.6L engine but it is for the 06 Kia Rio. He told me to go to a Kia dealer and find out if the 06 Rio and the 09 accent share the same engine set up, if they do then I can be gold for a custom header job or I can just wait until they come out for the accent. He did state that just with their headers that they offer now you can get 9hp and if you get a high flow cat you can get another 9hp as well, very nice and with a AEM short ram intake that is a great start. Let me know what you think.

hiya bonnie if you intend to DIY the brakes ? front pads? or rear shoes ? the front pads are easy enough for you to change in fact the pads/and calipers are virtually the same as ford and peugeot they are sliding type calipers that are held in position by 2x bolts that screw into the pins from rear of caliper when bolts removed the caliper pulls off reassembly is reverse after you push piston back the pads fit into the caliper carrier then refit/secure the caliper and pump brake pedal to take up the pads to discs B4 you move car then!bleed each brake a couple of pumps till fluid is clean the fluid that comes out first will be dirty due to heat absorbsion resulting in spongy pedal you will find pedal is more positive/hard when you bleedbrakes as i suggested brake fluid does absorb heat and moisture over time that is why it is recommended you bleed fluid to clear old fluid in lines nearest the cylinders hope this helps ? if you req further help come back will be glad to help best wishes from rochdale

No reply or support from customer carewith urgent complain!!!!
You have to find what causes front tire early wear. Tire Quality or front wheel misalignment.
First check your front wheel alignment and correct if necessary.
Each manufacturer specifies the duration of their tires' limited warranty in months or years from the date of purchase. Therefore, tire warranties begin at the time of delivery for new vehicles, and at the time of purchase for replacement tires. Consequently a new vehicle's registration certificate or the replacement tire's sales invoice will establish proof of ownership and the tire's in-service date. If no proof of purchase is available, the week and year the tire was manufactured (as identified by the DOT tire identification code branded on the sidewall) will be used.
Tire warranties also expire when the tire's original tread is worn down to 2/32nds of an inch (1.6 mm) of remaining tread at which time the tread blocks are worn flush with the treadwear indicator bars.

yes but mostly it needs to be done by dash tech recommended or apolstry shop <<< spell check
but here are the steps
remove dash place out of sun
mix batch of heat resistant resin
apply resin to dash the whole dash make a little thicker on dash
now when dried and hardened after 24 to 48 hours you take a sanding block and sand down smooth with sand paper then repaint with color dash that was before
you can use this same resin to also fill in the cracks of dash but you will still have to sand and repaint the area you just applied the heat resistant resin too this is called touch up the dash
dont use a power sander on this type of project you could damage your dash permanently
