Hyundai Accent


I have just purchsed a 2006 Hyundai Accent (manual) so far I am happy with it although when I drove it home for the first time on the freeway in fifth gear on 100/110km the car was reving quite high like it needed to change into another gear.

Is this a problem and can it be fixed easily. I am concerned as it may use excess fuel whilst the revs are high thus defeating the purpose of buying the car for its fuel effiency.

Any advice would be appreciated thank you

VP Holden Problem


Hello Mr King
I just changed the dash in my VP holden ute from column shift to a floor shift. For some reason the car wont start all. It will, after sitting for a day, but will start for a second and stop.
I have sold the car and it gets delivered this weekend. im hoping you maybe able to help me? The only thing i can think is that when i have pulled the speedo out i may have the connections up the wrong way or in the wrong order. A little confused with what i have done wrong thanks for your time i appreciate it very much.
Yours sincerly
Mike walker
