i30 in the news
by  Mike Costello

The Hyundai i30 Tourer Series II launches this week, bringing a range of mid-life updates to the popular small-sized wagon.

The Series II i30 wagon upgrade arrives a few months after the mid-life updated Series II i30 hatch range touched down on local shores, bringing with it new features, a new DCT dual-clutch transmission as standard, and a price increase across the trimmed-down line-up.

As before, the i30 Tourer is available in two specifications, the flagship Elite and the entry Tourer (was previously called the Active). Hyun...

(link) Hyundai i30 SR road test review

Hyundai's top selling car, the i30, has come in for an update that brings fresh front styling, new wheels, more equipment and a revised model range.

The biggest visual difference with the "Series II" i30 comes courtesy of a new grille, which has bold horizontal slats that bring it into line with newer Hyundais, such as the just-released Sonata and luxury Genesis

Door Locking

At the beginning of this month (June 2015) I was alerted to a potential problem with my Hyundai i30 and this has been significantly reinforced to me today.  I am appalled that all affected i30 owners haven't been contacted by Hyundai even though Hyundai are clearly aware of a potential problem.  For me it is a very serious potential problem which could be life threatening in an accident.

I have a Hyundai i30 (registered 2010) which came out of it's warranty in March this year.  It has low mileage for a 5 year old car at around 33500 miles.

At the end of May my drivers door stopped opening from the inside of the car - the only way to open the door was to wind the window down a...

Problems & Issues
Hey all wonder if anyone can help, possibly anyone from the uk? Ok so in another post i mentioned my starter motor had gone ( this is what i was told by a recovery guy when my car wouldnt start) i replaced the motor myself but the car still wouldnt start, got another recovery guy out to take a look, he thought it was just a dead battery but as the car still wouldnt start he did some more tests and stuff and said that my car has no compression, and could possibly be a piston or bent valve or something! He also mentioned that the air filter box was blowing out air as well as taking it in:/ i have bo idea if this is going to be a major job or something minor, anyonr have any experiance with this and possible costs? Im in the uk and have a 2009...

Hey all,

So last week I came home form downtown and when I parked the car and got out (engine off) I heard a hissing sound. At first I thought I was the just the neighbors but as I walked around the rear I realized it was coming from my car! It sounded like it was coming from the two rear wheels. I took a brief video to record the sound:

Tonight I came back from the gym and the sound returned but this time I sounded like it was only coming from the drivers side rear... It sounds like the pinpoint of the sound is the caliper but not 100%. My first thought was maybe sometime to do the the electric hand brake?

Any help woul...

I know the issue has been covered in previous threads but just wanted to share and ask some advice.

\Friday night coming home from work I lost electric power steering in my i30. suddenly felt very heavy and noted that both the ESP and ESP OFF light were activated. My mechanic has informed me that the issue is definitely the Electric power steering column and he has verified with the local dealership that replacement of the column is most likely outcome.

I was wanting to know what other people's experiences are with this issue? if this is an issue that Hyundai recognize as a manufacturing issue? have people been able to negotiate repairs with Hyundai under a consumer guarantee such as 'fit for purpose'?<...

I have recently bought my 2nd-hand 2009 i30 about 3 weeks ago.

When I first received  it the stereo controls on the steering wheel were working perfectly.
But, at some point (maybe after someone played around with the stereo while I was driving) they completely stopped working.

Volume up/down, mode etc (all buttons on the left hand side of the wheel) just don't work.
Cruise control buttons still work.

Have they simply broken or have they somehow accidentally been disabled? I couldn't find any help in the owners manual.

i30 in the news

This is the new Hyundai i30 Series 2. And this one in particular is the Active X, which Hyundai predicts is going to account for half of all sales of the updated line-up.

 Whatís all the fuss is about? Letís take a closer look and find outÖ

The Active X is the second-tier model in the new i30 range, which has five variants in total.

 The reason Hyundai thinks the Active X is the sweet spot is because itís only about $1000 more than the entry-level Active model but adds a bunch of features.

 On the outside you can pick the Active X by its 16-inch alloy wheels and its electric fold...

Grill (new shape #2)
April 27, 2015

Hyundai's top selling car, the i30, has come in for an update that brings fresh front styling, new wheels, more equipment and a revised model range.

The biggest visual difference with the "Series II" i30 comes courtesy of a new grille, which has bold horizontal slats that bring it into line with newer Hyundais, such as the just-released Sonata and luxury Genesis.
The i30 is the hatch version of Hyundai's small car, with the sedan badged as the Elantra. At times the two could have snared the top sales spot had they shared the same name, with the i30 the more popular of the two.
