Hi. Just new to the forum  to see if anyone can offer any info or advice. My daughter has a 2007 Hyundai i30 auto. The car has been running like a dream (perfect nick when she bought it and serviced regularly). It has 114,000kms on the clock. She had to start making a few distance trips to the coast which was when the problem started. She described it as the gearbox would not go into gear, it held revs and eventually stopped. Result: Had to be towed. Mechanic couldn't establish the problem. She made another coast trip and same deal. I had suggested if it happened again to disconnect the battery and see if would start. It did. Since then, have not made any more coast trips  :D and only runs around town. She took it to the Hyundai dealer. Muc...

Hi guys,

I'll attempt to update this from time to time and want to share my thoughts so far.

I live in a town on the outskirts of Auckland City and needed to update my ageing Toyota Starlet Glanza 1.3 which had served me well for the last 9 years. My drive to work is about 37 km each way, mostly motorway driving with a demanding steep gradient running about 4-5 Km's at the end. I found my Glanza a drag to drive and a bit small for the type of driving I was doing so after a few promotions decided I was going to treat myself to a new wagon.

I started researching a replacement economical car in the Yaris, Swift, Mazda 2 price range and came to the conclusion the Swift was best value. I went down to our local de...

Problems & Issues
Hi all,

I have had a June 2012 i30 for about 7 months now - love the car, but around 2 weeks ago, I suddenly lost a lot of the "extras":
- Cruise Control light would go on, but cant set it
- Auto Stop has stopped working (not saying "deactivated" just nothing, as if it no longer exists).
- ESC light comes on after a mile or two of driving and wont go off until engine turned off and on.
- CD player also gets stuck on "reading CD" - I barely use the CD player so unsure if this happened at the same time, or if its related - could be a red herring.

I've also noticed the following, but they are a bit more subjective:
- Rough engine sound when idling from time to time, and sounds a bit rougher at spe...

I'm wondering if you had this fixed?
My car vibrates badly from 80kph to 90kph when under load. There is no noise at all and no shudder in the steering wheel.
I just had a steering rack end replaced but that didn't fix it. I've rotated wheels on and off the car as well.

Air Con
It's been really warm here (NW UK) this week but I have noticed that the cooling fan on the car seems to be coming on a lot.  When I start from cold the fan is not on but it starts as the car is warming up and generally stays on until I turn off the engine.

Is this something others have experienced or should I get it checked?

Key Fob
Does anyone have any ideas re the problem?

FD i30.
Radio replaced 2 weeks ago for slow clock.
Now after 3 years of no issues, I'm having issues with the remote control intermittently not working. Can't lock or unlock. 2nd key does not work either at the time. 15 minutes later, it all seems fine again. Locking manually is no issue.

I haven't been able to reproduce when it happens, it seems random.

It defintely seems like an electrical gremlin which has only come on with the new radio.

Any thoughts re possible issue?

Hello all

I went to Grahamstown this weekend for a bachelor's party, and upon my return to PE I discovered something odd.

If I wind down or up the right side rear window from the console on my front door armrest, the window goes up and down as it should. However, the button on the rear door itself does not operate it. This indicates that the switch is bust or faulty, but here is what confuses me even more - if I press the rear button up or down and at the same time use the one on the driver door armrest, it doesn't work. In other words, it detects that I am pressing the rear window button - it just doesn't move.

Anyone else had a similar issue? It worked fine when I picked the car up, and I double checked th...

Has anyone else noticed a lot of road noise from the new i30?  My car has the Hankook Ventus Prime 2 in 16 inch guise fitted and at motorway speeds I am finding it pretty intrusive.

Has anyone fitted a different set of tyres with any success and, if so, would you please share what they are.

Thanks a lot.

Hey guys

Just put my i30, diesel, 61 plate, 52,000 miles in to Hyundai this morning as i fear the clutch is slipping. After going out with their mechanic it proves to be correct. It slips in the high gears and cant achieve more than 75mph.

They are inspecting it as i type and its looking unlikely to be covered by warranty. quoted 600!! Is this a known problem in a relatively new car? I must add that most the miles are purely motorway.

Between breaking down last year with fuel filter problems, the radio conking out twice and now this I'm not enjoying my i30 experience.

Any advice from you guys would be great

No problems with my 3 month old i30 until last week when suddenly lost AM radio reception. Took the car in to the Hyundai garage & they found the antenna base is faulty. I have to take the car back later this week to have a replacement installed. Hopefully that will fix the problem. Anything else to ask them to do/check at the same time?

Last week we also noticed that when the blue touch screen is pressed, ripples appear near the edges. We feel sure the screen didn't ripple when new. So wondered if i could ask fellow owners please...

- Is it of concern that the touch screen edges ripple?
- Does anyone else have any rippling effect?
- If so does it start to effect the operation of the unit?

Many Th...
