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

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??

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 ...

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...

I've bought a used 2008 i30 (hatchback model), and the previous owner didn't buy the remote unlock option (so I recieved only two 'ordinary' keys with it). I have central locking, and also have one "lock/unlock" button on the drivers door.
I want to know, if it's possible to add remote unlock, and with how many modifications:
Is the reciever part standard on the BCM, so i can just buy a spare remote key, and have the dealer program the code in? Or is the remote/reciever part missing on the BCM, if this option is not selected when buying? (I've read the thread on adding a rheostat for internat illumination, where everything was installed, just the rheostat missing, so I was wondering if everything is ...

Never had a key break but this is currently the state of my car key. To me this is poor design as my son in law drives a VW Passat and its keys have aluminum press buttons not thin rubber ones. I'm hoping it's a warranty item as my service is due soon. I saw your link for a new cover but it says they don't post these to the UK. I will just have to try the warranty route and if that's a no no I will try to source this item locally.

I was wondering whether you can clarify the change schedule for spark plugs on Petrol GD i30s. I have this leaflet which shows a change for only 3 years, which seems rather short, yet I can't find any other reference to this on Hyundai iCare website.
Would anyone know for certain if this is correct? Please see image (sorry about small size)
