Indicators
I just noticed when I went to pick some stuff from my car that the lights did not flash when I locked the car with remote key fob. They flashed in the morning when I came to work, but now few hours later they did not work any more. They will flash when I open the locks but not when closing them. Any ideas?

Speedometer
Hi to all,

I tried to find same problem on forum but didn't found it.
I have Hyundai i30 1.4, 2013y petrol engine.
It happens sometimes that when i change gear and want to accelerate rpm goes up fast my my car is at same speed.
I don't feel acceleration, no additional power, also for example I'm in 4th gear and he give proposal that I should switch to higher gear to 4th and rpm goes wild up.
youtube link from video what I recorded in my car.


I was on service and they didn't found nothing.
Did anyone had same problem?

Thanks.

TurboCharger
I'm baaaack!  Miss me?  Probably not ha ha.

Anywho, don't know how to really explain the problem.  I'm coming up to my 180,000km but seeing as that service will most likely cost me close to $900 (if not more), money which I do not have, I have asked that Hyundai do a 160,000km, as that should only be around $300.

My car is now 7 years old and out of dealership warranty, but wasn't happy with the last mechanic I took my car to, thus going back to Hyundai.

I know the timing belt needs changing, but I will discuss this with them on Wednesday and ask what absolutely needs replacing, but that they will need to discuss with me first.

So lately I've noticed my car sounds like a distant siren when ...

Clutch
Just bought a 2007 SLX diesel, and the pre-purchase inspection showed the clutch starting to slip under load.  I never noticed anything when driving it, but never got to drive it hard.

Anyway, should it need replacing, any idea of likely cost (with or without flywheel work), and good places to take it (Brisbane northside)?

Nothing much new on the Turbo front here as yet, still no sign of them arriving in the showrooms anytime soon.

My Google alert presented me with this item today though -

Possible hottish hatch i30 version may be coming through sometime, might make the warm version look a bit feeble? What to believe eh ??

If I have to put up with sports type seats and low profile tyres to get a bit more power and torque I'd rather it came with 250HP and 260 lb-ft  rat...

i30 in the news
by  Mike Costello




The Hyundai i30 Tourer Series II launches this week, bringing a range of mid-life updates to the popular small-sized wagon.

The Series II i30 wagon upgrade arrives a few months after the mid-life updated Series II i30 hatch range touched down on local shores, bringing with it new features, a new DCT dual-clutch transmission as standard, and a price increase across the trimmed-down line-up.

As before, the i30 Tourer is available in two specifications, the flagship Elite and the entry Tourer (was previously called the Active). Hyun...

Quote
Hyundai's top selling car, the i30, has come in for an update that brings fresh front styling, new wheels, more equipment and a revised model range.

The biggest visual difference with the "Series II" i30 comes courtesy of a new grille, which has bold horizontal slats that bring it into line with newer Hyundais, such as the just-released Sonata and luxury Genesis

Door Locking

At the beginning of this month (June 2015) I was alerted to a potential problem with my Hyundai i30 and this has been significantly reinforced to me today.  I am appalled that all affected i30 owners haven't been contacted by Hyundai even though Hyundai are clearly aware of a potential problem.  For me it is a very serious potential problem which could be life threatening in an accident.

I have a Hyundai i30 (registered 2010) which came out of it's warranty in March this year.  It has low mileage for a 5 year old car at around 33500 miles.

At the end of May my drivers door stopped opening from the inside of the car - the only way to open the door was to wind the window down a...
