Had 5 great years of reliable service from the USB MP3 player, where I put USB sticks in with long podcasts. Shortly after the warranty expires the USB player starts to reset itself at random moments while playing. It then goes back to the first track on the stick. Frustrating as you can never find the same place again in a long podcast.

- Reformatting the sticks with FAT32
- Different brands of stick

Anyone else been seeing this issue and found a cure?

My interim solution is a Sansa Clip player connected to the AUX in 3.5mm socket.
Works quite well actually just fiddly to control while driving.

After 5 years and some 92,000k's my baby is now out of warranty...  :(

Faults?...there's been a few, the rubbish drivers side door seal being one of the standout issues...and one I refuse to accept as not being a warranty issue, regardless of what Hyundai and some on here say...  :whistler:

Then there was the hole that wore through the drivers side seat....  :fum:

There was also the rear quarter panel window that needed to be replaced....oh, and the rear vision mirror that "buzzed"... the squeaky drivers seat and the rear spoiler that started to lift and come loose....the cover on the gear shift knob that came off in my hand just recently....hmmm, oh and the keyfob that wasn't up to the task because, apparen...

Hello all,

I find my AM radio crackly ... seems like it's more of an issue when the car is in motion... so I'm guessing maybe the aerial ....

Anyone else had problems with this?

FM radio works fine... but I like old man radio ... soooooo it's annoying...

Tried to find some info, some people have mentioned a faulty aerial base....

Any help is appreciated..

Hi guys.

I've got an i30 SR that's about 9 months old and I'm getting this odour from the ac vents during ac start up.

The smell is musky like an armpit (but I swear it ain't mine) and it only started appearing a few weeks ago. The smell disappears after about a minute each time I run the AC unit -  then it disappears.

I've tried the AC spray where you spray the vents under the wipers from outside the car. Helped a little but the smell is still there.

Just wondering if any of you have the same issue?

Fuel Economy
Bought an i30 1.6 CRDi Active Blue Drive 6 speed 2014 plate last week, car has 13500 miles on clock but average fuel consumption had been reset to zero. Handbook says upto 73.6 mpg but I'm getting no where near that, currently reading 43.8 mpg. Mainly driving local during day and 2 junctions on motorway at night to and from work. Should this figure rise the more I use the car?
What do you get from your car??

I drive a 2010 1.6 CRDi Automatic with 46,000 miles on it.

No major issues until today when it seemed to suddenly stall whilst I was at about 70% throttle at the end of an overtaking manoeuvre!! :(

I've had no engine or transmission problems with it before, or all day after.  The car was driving normally then suddenly, no drive. I coasted to a stop then parked, waited a puzzled minute or so, then tried starting it up.  It started perfectly first time, and I gingerly drove off.  I tried to replicate it later and can't. The car is still pulling well and changes gear smoothly.

Any idea as to what the problem may be, and whether it is covered by what's left of the warranty??

Spark Plug
Hi All.  New to the thread because I have what I think is a warranty issue but Hyundai do not and found this forum by googling.
My dilemma is as follows;  My 2010 i30, still in warranty, started to make an odd sound the other night and it turns out that it has a broken spark plug and "insulation ceramic around electrode at combustion chamber end is missing.  cyclinder head requires removal for further investigation."

The car has done 38,346 kms.  Hyundai say that because I didn't get the spark plugs changed at 45,000 kms or 3 years then it will cost me $2,245.00 possibly more.  An independant mechanic said that a spark plug falling apart at 38,000 kms is ridiculous and that I should fight Hyundai on this and that forget the ...

Guages & Dials
Hi 🙋

My 2014 1.6l i30 3dr SE (8500km) is having some really odd issues with its fuel gauge. I'll have a fairly full tank and start the car and it will read empty! No marks on the meter  and the empty light will be flashing. It can occur for the entire journey(40 minutes+) or just for 2 minutes, then the light will stop flashing and each little mark on the meter will miraculously start filling up whilst driving! It also happens completely randomly, might do it twice one week and then not at all for the rest of the month. I've taken it to local Hyundai dealer and they can't find anything wrong with it :( typically it was working fine when they had it.

I'm new to this forum so if anyone has any ideas that would be much ap...
