Grill (new shape #2)
April 27, 2015

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.
The i30 is the hatch version of Hyundai's small car, with the sedan badged as the Elantra. At times the two could have snared the top sales spot had they shared the same name, with the i30 the more popular of the two.

Unfortunately my first post here is a plea for advice/help.

Last week our 2009 SX diesel auto 5 door (86000km) transmission began to fail.  Driving locally and not over 60km/hr the transmission would not go past 2nd gear.  We had high rpm at around 60km/hr.

I had a quick look at similar problems people had reported on and feared the worst.  I took the car into the local (Townsville, QLD, AU) hyundai service centre to get diagnosis of problem etc and determine the damage.

I called them to get an update - 'transmission failure, needs replacement'.  Any more information around that?? None that they would give me.  How much? They will get back to me....

I called them back a few days lat...

Grill (new shape #2)
My brother has returned bearing gifts :) I picked up the new grill from him as soon as they got home today then a quick sprint over to the paint shop to get the outer ring painted body colour ( sleek silver ) should have it back by Tuesday then need to organise having it fitted.

I think it'll be a huge improvement on the current grill

i30 in the news
Here is one of the first reviews of GD i30 Series II:  (link) 2015 Hyundai i30 Series II Review | CarAdvice

Active and Active X models but no Elite in the range anymore.  Prices are not exactly cheap anymore for higher models and as expected ride is still considered to be firm (which I agree with)

They've gotten rid of the cd player and also removed the button to turn off the display, still no DRL's either :rolleyes:

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..
