Fuel Economy
Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forum from the UK and have a query.

I have a 2011 i30 1.6 CRDi Auto.

The trip computer is currently showing an average of 33.8 MPG. When the tank is empty and I fill to the brim I get a miles to next fill up indicator of 350 - 360 miles.

I do a mix of motorway and town driving - nothing too extreme in either case. But this level of economy seems terrible.

I have had the car about 3 months now. Initially when I saw this I thought to myself well a service is due and it hasn't adjusted to my style of driving.

At present I have a 14 year old Toyota Celica 1.8 VVTLi Auto Petrol that gives about the same economy.

The mileage of the car is 36K...

Air Con
Hi all,
Long time reader and love the forum. I am having an issue at the moment with my 2008 (MY09) Diesel i30 5 spd manual where it seems that if i accelerate out of an intersection with a good amount of throttle position, the zircon cuts out and blows warm air. It behaves as advertised whenever i am not accelerating sufficiently. Any thoughts? I know that some cars with smaller engines do that so that all power is available for the engine, but can't find any info elsewhere. I also know my land cruiser has a coolant temp switch that cuts off the zircon above a certain temp, but my i30 seems to only do it at extended throttle pedal positions? And i never noticed it last summer!!
Thanks in advance;

Just took the i30 diesel down to the shops and under acceleration went from quiet to a very loud siren whistle noise. Something has failed in the turbo, can anyone help?? Any ideas of dollars to fix too would be great!

Not sure which would be closer to actual speed but I was using my Nokia phone GPS sat nav and while that was reading 73mph the car's speedometer was saying 80mph.  Tyres haven't been changed (195/65/15) so can't factor that in.

Problems & Issues
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.

Hi All

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...
