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?

I have bought a number of new cars in my life (62y) and for the first time a manufacturer (Hyundai) has told me I have to pay for a "Warranty Assessment" for the exhaust manifold. I have been wondering if any other car makers also do this. I like my i30 wagon very much, but I am very disappointed with Hyundai Australia.

So, today the odo turned over and showed the magic 200.000 km.
The car is now 6 years and 2 month old. I bought the car second hand nearly 3 years ago with 126.000 km on the odo.
Have I had any problems with the car..? Not really, except what I regard as normal wear & tear.
I did have some problems with the sensors in the DPF, but I still believe that was caused by the RaceChip tuningbox I was stupid enough to fit. A costly experience I could have lived without, but own fault.
Other than that, only normal wear & tear:
@ 154.000 2 glowplugs died, I replaced all 4.
@ 172.000 the rear brakepads were worn. Disc's still fine.
@173.000 the left steer...

I'm thinking of buying a low-ish klms 08 diesel (48000KLM) and I've read a lot of posts on faults and niggles , both car and dealer the good the bad and the ugly and overall whilst there seems to be a fair stream of disparate faults there doesn't seem to be a specific common issue or issues that plague this model with perhaps the exception of the pesky EGR valve thingo.
Or have I missed something maybe ?
Anyhoo , one of the comments I have noticed often being repeated is " Thank goodness it's under warranty" and whilst the benefit of warranty is obvious I have some concerns as the vehicle I may buy will have only the statutory 90 day warranty as specified under that Motor dealers and real estate agents ...

owing to a delay in supplying a new petrol (auto) I30 I have ordered, I seem to be able to change the order to a diesel if I wish.
Given the few grand difference in price and the fact that my wife is likely to only do about 15 to 20,000 k's a year, and the time it might take to recoup the extra outlay, my question is whether or not the diesel is worth the extra coin? Also, whether the diesel is trouble free and reliable.
I have read that the driving experience if far superior in the diesel because of extra torque etc, and this better driving experience would be sufficient motivation for me to buy the diesel without worrying about recouping the extra cost, so what do ya reckon?
I think ...

Last year I had trouble with the passenger rear door not unlocking via the remote and sometimes also not by manual operation by the internal lever.
Returned to dealer and they replaced the locking actuator under warranty.
Today, now drivers side rear door is doing same. But it can be locked and unlocked manually via internal lever. However, if lever is in open position it cannot be locked with remote and vice versa.
Back to the dealer I go tomorrow........

I've had my i30 for just over a month. A few weeks ago I realised that the parking lights (second option for lights) were always on when I was driving, even when I had the light nob on off, anyway thought it was nothing until they decided to not switch off and drain the battery one night which required road side assist to come and jump start the car. I took the car to its one month service which happened to be two days after that event, the guy told me that it was a possible, but not definite wiring problem and it would need to be rebooked as it would take a better part of a day to fix/investigate. I rebooked for next Friday, however, today whilst out the problem worsened with the car randomly returning the inside and outs...
