Gearbox
Hi,

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...

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)

USB
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.

Tried:
- 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.

Testimonials
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...

Radio
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..

Smells
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?

Mark.

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??
