Suspension Springs
I have an i30 (FD Trophy 2012 Hatch) Petrol 2.0L.

Today I was checking the tyre pressure and I have noticed the gap above the rear drivers side tyre, is about 2cm from the top of the tyre to the car body.

Yet on the other side, it is closed to 7cm.

Surely this should be symettrical...and I have never noticed this's as though the suspension has broken???

See photos comparing passenger and drivers side. Any ideas what the problem could be...? Would this be a warranty job?

I checked and there has been no mistake with the tyre size, both tyre size is the same..

Hi all
Battery light came on today now waiting for a jump start the wife told me just before all the parts shops closed. Let's hope it's an easy fix with a new alternator.

i30 in the news
The German magazine AutoBild often perform the 100,000 km test of various cars. Here's the verdict of the i30:

"With a score of "one" is the Koreans the best long-term test car we have investigated so far. Strong, is not it?"

Yeah, I know. It's in German  :P

In short, the only fault during the 100,000 km was a blown bulb at the number plate.

They did of course mention the not-so-good feeling in the steering and the road noise....

Ive just bought a 2016 i30sr manual. The electric park brake does not automatically disengage as i drive off. The user manual states that it does. The service dealer at hyundai didnt know but ending up saying that it only automatically disengages on an automatic vehicle. Due to whats written in the manual and my own personal knowledge of EPB I believe that it should be automatically disengaging. Can anybody advise me re this? Thanks

Hyundai i30 2008
- Petrol
- 1.6l 92kW 122 (126?) HP
- 5 Gear manual 
- 5 Door 

Ok so I bought the car about two months ago. No issues at all a bit on the slow side with 120+ HP it was still slower than my Opel Astra (101 HP) and friends Ford Focus (106 HP) both petrol. But that did not really bother me since i'm mostly driving around town with maybe once a month on the highway. 

Anyhow  a week or two back  there was an odd noise coming from the engine when I pressed down the clutch kinda like grinding two metal plates against eachother. Hyundai official service told me it was the pushing disc that was worn out (not sure if that's how it's translated) anyhow the clutch, fw and disc.. whole kit had...

When getting the car back from the dealer after the glow plug accident, they told me there was wrong type coolant in the system. I had used some blue stuff, as the only info I can find in the owners manuel say: Must contain ethylene glycol. Must not contain alcohol or methanol.
The blue stuff is ethylene glycol based, but they told me it should be the red coolant... :question:

Engine is 2008 1,6 U CRDI
