I've got a bit of a concern with the i30. Just marked 32k and for the last couple of weeks the car, when idling, almost feels like it's shivering. Nothing major but I can notice it when stopped at lights etc... also seems to be worse when the AC is on. Turning the AC off instantly cuts the shiver in half.
Moved from Wagga to Sydney for study so the cars now being exposed to long idles waiting at lights and stuck in traffic. Could it be the car "adjusting" to city life?
I've been reading few similar topics and people suggest a fuel additive to help clean the engine. The cars never had anything but 98 Premium in it whixh I understand already has cleaners in it so will a 3rd party additive help much...

I have a couple of issues with my 2011 UK i30 Estate (CW?) 1.6 CRDi (I'm sure it's the Comfort model but I haven't checked!). One is a starting issue, the other is with the door, which I'll create a seperate thread for.
Anyway, around February this year I noticed that on the first start of the day, the engine wouldn't start first time. I'd put the key in, wait for most of the lights to go out, then turn the key, but whilst it was trying, it wouldn't start. If I turned the key back to the original position, it would then start no problem on the second attempt, and on every other start that day.
I've since found that if I hold the key for around 3 to 4 seconds on first start, it will start, but it fe...

Have an i30 09 plate wit the above issue, the garage I bought it from are replacing the steering column (with a 2nd hand one I imagine) I'm just wondering if anyone knows if this will be the cure and also what calibrations need to be done so I can then ask (make sure) the job has been done correctly as it's not an official hyundai garage. More so worried that the fault will re appear as it's happened 2 in 2 days after supposedly being fixed the first time. Travelling to Scotland in a week and the wife will be driving, if the power steering fails on the motorway I'm worried she won't be able to steer, we have a 3 year old in the car. I guess I'm looking for some comfort that this should work.

Sorry if the subject has already been touch on - I just couldn't find it anywhere
I have a 2014 i30 trophy 1.6lt CRDI that is having starting uses after being serviced. It currently has less then 20'000km so still in relatively brand new condition.
It had been serviced at the end of September 2015. Straight after this service the car would not start properly
It cranks over for a while (I ALWAYS glow it first) coughs and splatters and stalls a couple of times before it starts running properly. Once fully warmed up it drives normally again and there is not problem starting it when warm either.
The first time it went in to have the issue addressed (straight after the service) the...

Hi, On a 2010 Diesel (70k), there has intermittently been a bit of smoke on cold starts. The dealer found a dirty EGR which they cleaned. This had no effect whatsoever. Now, over the last 5K since the clean and in addition to the smokey starts (which are getting a little worse), there is a strong exhaust smell around the car when idling. To put it in perspective, you probably couldn't sit with the car idling and the window open. There may also be a bit of smoke out the exhaust on the overrun when changing gears, but I'm still checking this because it is mainly visible at night in the lights of following vehicles.
Any thoughts anyone - need a new EGR or could the valve have been damaged by the clean?

This is my first post on the i30 Owners Club. Last week I took delivery of a new i30 Active GD4SR2 with diesel engine and 7 speed dual clutch auto. I drove the petrol model, then later on the diesel. Having never driven a diesel before, I fell in love with the torque and the effortless acceleration up steep hills. I returned to the dealer and signed to buy the car right there and then.
The car has been great, but after about 1500km a rattle has appeared in the rear. It's more of a creaking sound when the car goes over bumps, and importantly the bumps usually have to be asymmetric. A bump when driving around a corner always makes the rear creak. It's probably the hatch flexing?

I have a 2010 i30 CW , and am having a problem with the brake lights on the nearside One of the bulbs was out a month or so ago , so I replaced it and all was well.The missus noticed there were no brake lights that side the other day, so I dutifully popped the cluster off and had a look at the bulbs.Both looked fine , but I swapped them with known good ones anyway.Still no good. The brake light switch must be OK, as the high level light works as do the ones on the offside The rear running lights are fine, so I can probably rule out a dodgy earth. Any more ideas ? I've seen mention of resetting the BCM - is this just a matter of disconnecting the battery for a bit , or does more need to be done ?

Gday all .
Wondering if anyone knows how to fix this ?
One day my wife mentioned that she couldn't close the fuel cap on her I30CW after filling up . When I had a look I noticed the plastic latch on the end of the fuel release cable was flush with the hole in the plastic fuel filler surround (bit hard to describe but I think you get the idea?) . Anyway , when I tried to coax it out with a little flat blade screwdriver it disappeared behind the plastic surround . So for months we have just been taping the fuel cap cover closed .. but high time I did something about this.
Just had a look before and it looks like maybe ? the area around where that latch pokes out might ? be able to unclip so I ca...
