So I've had my 2012 i30 Active GD CRDi for exactly one year now. I've just ticked over 12000Km and thought I'd do a short recap on my opinions one year on.
- I'm still loving the car. Buying a new car was a fantastic decision
- Have had no mechanical / electrical issues with the car
- Get great economy (average 5.0L/100km) for 80% driving to/from work in town
- First service went ok
- Only downside is possible regret of not getting the Elite model!
The best part about the car is that it is a smooth, quiet, comfortable ride. Nice high driving position (which I really notice when I sit in my wife's old 98 Corolla and feel like I'm falling!). Visibility with the mirrors is great. The reve...

I've been using this for a year and a half ever since I owned the car. It's kept my original carpet looking new and it's durable. I figure it might be an good and fun idea for someone who just got their car. Save you some buck.
You'll need: Permanent marker, scissors, newspaper, 2x2m carpet (i got mine from bunnings for $20) and some velcro to prevent it from moving around.
To do: Put newspaper over the area in your car where you want you carpet to be, use the marker and mark the edges until you complete a somewhat shape of the carpet. Cut out the shape in the newspaper and stick it on the reverse side of the carpet. Cut out the carpet with scissors and tata, you're done (Make sure you cut the right side). For the bac...

I know this has been discussed in the past, but I had another question.
I have a GD 2013 i30 and don't like the Hyundai carpet mats.
I have looked around for a rubber mat alternative, but the generic ones at the retailers seem to be very large.
I then noticed Hyundai do rubber mats for the ix35, does anyone know if these would fit an i30?
Can anyone with an ix35 and i30 confirm the sizing and dimension of both these mats?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Has there been any experience of paint peeling off the plastic end/cover caps on the CW roof carry bars?
I just returned from Cairns and went through pouring/heavy rain all the way to Bundaberg. The following day I noticed 3 of the cover caps had damage to the paint, on one half the paint had been stripped off. The bars appear to be metal and they are OK. The Hy dealer said to bring it in and they would have a look at it. From memory the paintwork is only covered by a 2 year warranty, I could be wrong and it may not cover damage caused by the rain. New endcaps cost $90 each, are black and would have to be painted silver so if this is not covered by warranty, I will try to remove the covers and have them re-painted.
Is it easy to...

Hi guys my i30 stalls every now and then especially after taking off from the traffic lights it's a real nuisance when you are in peak hour traffic. Then it won't start unless I take the key out then put it back in and retry it. Help

I've just had my car in for its 4th annual service [50,000 miles] yesterday although mine has just covered 34,000 miles. Total cost including the MOT was £302, which certainly wasn't cheap.
However, before I took it to them, I listed a few 'niggles' for them to look at and fix. One of them included a rattling/knocking noise coming from the front end somewhere. After their investigations, it turned out to be an exhaust flexi hose that required to be replaced. Lucky for me this was replaced under the Hyundai 5yr warranty as the price they quoted on the job sheet was £216
This on top of the £302 would not have been good
Now, this is the 2nd consecutive year my car ha...

In for the free first service today. Absolutely no complaints with the car. Have a couple minute chips in the paint from stones. Good thing for paint protection warranty. Off to the body shop next to see if they want to touch it up or not.

Just wondering if anyone else has had trouble with their key not working remotely? I've tried the spare and it's not working either. Tried a new battery in the key fob I use all the time but no difference. Had great trouble prying open the spare's battery compartment and am only damaging the plastic. Unlocked the car last night by putting the key in the door which set off the alarm. Any help appreciated.

When starting to drive my i30 is sooooo sensitive, it leaves no room for errors. Too much gas, and the wheels spin; too little gas, the car stalls. When the gas is correct, I feel shocks. Especially in heavy traffic, when you stop and go all the time, this problem is not fun at all. It makes me carsick... I think it's a problem of the gas and clutch pedal, which give no feedback at all.
The car is a 1.4 petrol, I own it for 4,5 years now, and I am becoming tired of it...
Compared to my brothers hyundai coupe, his car has a smoother ride with more feedback.
Does anyone have the same problem? Is it possible to fix it?

My 2010 auto i30 stalls on start up if it's been sitting in the same spot for over 8 hours (eg. In the mornings, after work). On the second try it starts up normally. Ideas?
