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...

My current car is petrol - but my previous 4 cars were all diesel. Ten months into ownership of a petrol car I have noticed that the majority of problems posted on forums are with Diesels. There are quite a few problems mentioned - especially problems with ISG and DPF savaging economy, a few about the DMF and some about dirty fuel or water in the fuel filter. Limp home mode seems to be a diesel speciality.
In the UK the difference in price between diesel and petrol fuels is steadily getting smaller and there is evidence that for mixed motorway and town driving the diesel fuel consumption is not as great as people anticipate. For sure - on long motorway runs, diesel has a great advantage in fuel consumption - but for town ...

Last weekend I visited my sister in Sydney. I'd found her car online while she was heading home from the dealers on Parra Rd. Major gripes in red.
Anyway, I first hopped into the back seat, next to the baby seat. Very comfy for my 6'2" (1.88m) frame, with my knees barely touching the drivers seat. Head and foot room were also impressive for a car of this size. But what's with the carpet?! Did they take reclaimed fibres and boil down a soup, inject the slurry into molds and bake it? That's the impression I was left with.
Then I remembered to check the tyres. The previous owner had written in the carsales ad tha...

Have guests coming over in 2 days and realise Roof racks are urgently needed concerning the luggage.
Scrambling to get a pair now innit!
The dear experienced, Please recommend which one (Thule Rola Whisbar etc) I should get in terms of load capacity, easy to strap, wind noise and easy installation? also compatibility to mount a bike carrier of other make later?

My daily driver, a 2013 Hyundai i30 1.8 L petrol, has been very reliable, well... almost. The only thing that has been giving me issues is the radio tuner.
It's the 5" touch screen unit. When I bought the car brand new in November last year, the FM and AM tuner was extremely sensitive, and received all the stations on the FM band, and even out performed the radio that is in my Nissan Tiida!
But over the past few months, the tuner has been a bit picky. Some days it will receive the stations clearly, and some other days it will not, this doesn't have much to do with weather conditions. A family member of mine also got a 2013 i30 around the same time as I did, and I have done some comparisons wi...

Hi guys. I know this problem has been discussed long ago, but I wanted to ask you one thing.The main two sources for this problem, according to previous articles I have read on this forum, could be : 1. low tire pressure 2. break switch problem My question is : due to the fact I have my TPMS sensors removed, and the pressure can't be "read", can this take me directly to the second case (the break switch problem)? The ESP OFF lights, turn on randomly. Sometimes when I turn the engine on, without even moving the car 1cm. I have to turn the engine off and turn on again.Most of the cases, the ESP OFF light won't be turned on again.Other times I can go to work and back (~ 11 Km) and it's all fine, the ESP OFF lights won'...

So I thought since my new-to-me i30 has clocked just past 10K km, I would give a little write-up on my findings, what I like and what I don't, and what I have learnt.
I purchased my i30 through Hypercar on the 6th of June after much uhm-ing and aah-ing and frivolously researching cars on the net, asking people for opinions and generally walking away with more questions than answers.
My ideal car that I had in my head was either a Mitsubishi Lancer GLS 2.0l, as they have crappy resale value in SA and they are rock solid cars so they can be found for very little outlay. However, the 2l MIVEC engine is quite thirsty and it lacked some of the mod cons of other vehicles. My other option was an older car,...
