In 2000, you can get a 1.5L or 1.6L if I remember correctly.

Depending on the mileage, you can get 30-38 mpg...

In terms of known problems, I've heard that the catylitic converters were weak in the beginning of the year (had to have mine replaced).

Other than that, they're pretty reliable. I would check to find out when the timing belt was last replaced (they have to be done every 60,000 miles). I purchased mine brand new and have been satisfied with the car.

2000 only had the 1.5 L engine. I have not seen any major problems but if the MAF has not been replaced it will likely fail soon. Check the flex pipe and see if it is cracked but other than that i don't think there are any real issues with the model. That is why I came back to owning an Accent.

No, there's a sensor in the intake piping called the "mass air flow meter" that is used to tell the computer how much air is coming in through the intake. It's between the filter and the throttle body, and if you get a cold air intake you have to retain the MAF.
