My Mrs has got a 2010 I30
Great little car, I flog it every time I drive it, which isnt very often, it goes round corners like its on rails.
This thread might help someone hence the reason for the post.
It has an intermittent starting problem.
I first read about the problem in this article http://www.drive.com.au/editorial/articledetail.aspx?ArticleID=64181
I always suspected fuel every time it occurred.
Still haven't had it fixed, will get it looked at one day.
You will know when the problem occurs, the car car cranks when the key is turned but no way in the world will it start.
The quick fix is to clench your fist and ba...

The indicators on my i30 Comfort 1.4 Petrol 2009 (Right hand drive) have stopped flashing. Occasionally I get one or two flashes but after that they are stuck on. The same applies to left, right and hazard warning lights (ie both at the same time).
I think I might need a new relay unit but I'm not sure. Can anyone confirm? And if so, where do I find the existing relay unit?
Many thanks in advance.

new owner of an i30 1.4 2009 Hyundai, i love the car, but I've noticed what i think might be an issue,
if i lightly rest my foot on the clutch pedal i can feel it vibrating, when i press it down the vibration can still be felt till about 1/3 down, fully pressed down it cant be felt, also i had the driver window open i can hear a sort of whistling sound, which goes away when the clutch pedal is pressed down, and returns when foot is lifted off the clutch pedal.
Am hoping this doesn't mean i have a failing clutch, i do sometimes have a little difficulty going into first or into reverse, but this is intermittent,
Hope someone might be able to shed some light before i have to take it to a ga...

As some members have reported problems with their motors, I thought I would do a 'wish list' regarding them on my 2013 cdri nav style 6sp auto. starting from the front. I've had the chariot less than 2 weeks Front parking sensors
, I don't see the point of them being only on the side, i'm sure they could have fitted 2 at the front either side of the number plate considering the rear as 4 sensors and a reversing camera.Door mirrors
, I would of preferred them to close in when the ignition key is removed or when you lock it with the fob. Only had the car 2 days and parked up in a car park and forgot to close the mirrors, when I got home and parked in the garage the n/s one didn't retract so I took...

My daily driver, a 2013 Hyundai i30 1.8 L petrol, has been very reliable, well... almost. The only thing that has been giving me issues is the radio tuner.
It's the 5" touch screen unit. When I bought the car brand new in November last year, the FM and AM tuner was extremely sensitive, and received all the stations on the FM band, and even out performed the radio that is in my Nissan Tiida!
But over the past few months, the tuner has been a bit picky. Some days it will receive the stations clearly, and some other days it will not, this doesn't have much to do with weather conditions. A family member of mine also got a 2013 i30 around the same time as I did, and I have done some comparisons wi...

I know this problem has been discussed long ago, but I wanted to ask you one thing.The main two sources for this problem, according to previous articles I have read on this forum, could be :
1. low tire pressure
2. break switch problem
My question is : due to the fact I have my TPMS sensors removed, and the pressure can't be "read", can this take me directly to the second case (the break switch problem)?
The ESP OFF lights, turn on randomly. Sometimes when I turn the engine on, without even moving the car 1cm. I have to turn the engine off and turn on again.Most of the cases, the ESP OFF light won't be turned on again.Other times I can go to work and back (~ 11 Km) and it's all fine, the ESP OFF lights won'...
