    I just want to make a comment on this update:

    November 2, 3pm I got my accent from Hyundai Greenhills and since then no radio, I used my car from regular routine qc (home) -> Makati (ofc) -> Antipolo (relatives).

    For 3 days all I can say is, it's better now than before.

    These are the changes:

    No knocking so far either heavy, moderate and light traffic.
    No knocking either high or low temp.
    No Knowking up hill (to Antipolo)
    Engine response is superb.
    No low power.
    clutch and transaxe is smooth.

    But still under observation.


    FYI,

    Ako02ph
    Accent 1.4 MT Bronze (July batch).

    Yung intermittent dragging mo siguro sa bitin habang papanik? This ain't clutch sliding/dragging, it is something to do with the ECU variable timing. Engine timing can't adjust on time whenever a load is applied. This update will resolve that issue. I was annoyed with it for 1000km, now it is really better and is 100% smooth. Should you not resolve this matter you might end up a clutch rider and you might even ruin a perfectly working clutch plate and disc in record time.

    di naman bitin pag papanik, though i give more gas. when coming from full stop, it feels like low power pero i don't mind. i just give a little more gas. but i am not sure what i experienced nung nag shift ako to gear 2, parang nag "grrr". sometimes i'm experiencing a delay / lag when depressing gas lately. so hopefully my unit can benefit dito sa update.

    Yep, same as mine before, ipa update mo na kasi malakas sa gas yan. You tend to press the pedal more to compensate and you might also consume the clutch prematurely...

    Hi Guys just had my accent last week MT 100kms odo palang oct-nov batch i think.
    Is the update safe already for mt user here? Im having the same experience coming form a full stop then acceleration, the low power sets it ung tipong gapang pa rin while stepping sa gas na sagad na? Im not sure din if mali lang ung driving techniques ko. pls help

    btw lakas sa gas consumption ko.nsa 18/100 km. minsan pa pala ung odo reading nagloloko pa nagreregister sa 80/100km during idling
