2012 Hyundai i30 Elite (1.6 Auto)
90k's. fully serviced and only recently out of warranty

I noticed my check engine light very occasionally came on, typically after driving the car a bit harder.  I bought a ODB2 reader and I can see this error.

:link: OBD-II Trouble Code: P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Range/Performance

I'm not stressed as it's just an alert saying timing wasn't perfect (plus the fact it only occurs when I hit it hard but I thought I should ask. 

My fuel economy does suck on the car (9L/100) and I have had the occasional hard start issue (push button doesnt start, I need to press it again).  The car is due soon for a...

Fuel Economy
Hi all. This is my first time on the forum, so iím sorry if this topic has been brought up before.

A couple of months ago i bought a brand new i30 1.6 110 Diesel DCT. And iím generally pleased with my first 10k km.

However, iíve noticed that my fuel consumption is poor whenever iím in the 7th gear. And i donít understand why.

Cruising with 110km:
7th gear - 16km/l (~2,200 rev)
6th gear - 18 - 20km/l (~2,500 rev)

Same thing happens at 130km, just with slightly lower km/l numbers for both gears.

Has anyone tried the same, or even heard of the 7th gear performing bad in terms of fuel consumption? Could it be a software problem? Or do i perhaps need to run another 10k km to break ...

Check Engine Light
Car is a 2014 i30 Auto Diesel 128HP GD2 Model bought a few months ago(Ex Ausgrid car with ~35k kms on the clock) ~45k kms now..

Problem: (Sorry for the long post but I'm trying to think what are the right steps to take)
2 days ago car gets stuck middle of the street while attempting to park in driveway(had to be pushed/parked by hand on the street),  engine was turning and at one point briefly started yet stopped when engaged in gear. Left it for about an hour and tried again, after a couple of tries managed to start, quickly engaged gear and drove into driveway. Engine management light came on and stayed on while car was operating.

I've read everything I could I think on this issue on these forums and ordered a ...

EGR Valve
Hello fellow i30 owners. I have a problem I canít seem to resolve with my car infrequently coughing, particularly in lower gears. Iíve replaced the fuel filter, all glow plugs plugs, a new set of injectors and now even my local Hyundai dealers are stumped - any ideas?

ABS & disks
This is the first vehicle I've owned with ABS/TCS and I absolutely hate it. Aside from the fact that it's incredibly annoying when it activates, it eliminates my ability to feel the road surface when braking or accelerating. Is there a way to disable this horrible system?

I've been driving for 40+ years in snow and ice and have never needed ABS/TCS, so please don't lecture me about the wonders of modern automotive electronics. I know how to handle these conditions and having a computer separate me from the road is not beneficial.

This is my first post here. I just purchased a 2012 plate i30 1.6 CRDi with around 55k miles on the clock. Sadly it immediately had to be fitted with a new clutch and fuel filter.. but that's been done and sorted now.

After using it for a proper commute I've noticed that I can't sit at 30mph in 4th gear without the engine juddering slightly. This is around 1,150/1,200 rpm. What I'm wondering is whether this is the sign of a potential issue or if it's just the gear ratios?

In my previous cars (a 2014 diesel 1-series and Toyota Aygo petrol) they'd happy sit in 4th at 30mph. Sure if I put my foot flat to the floor nothing would really happen unless I downshifted.

Any thoughts? After my initial...

Has anyone tried to successfully put an amp underneath the passangers seat?
Looks like it might be a bit tough with the plastic ducting and plastic ridges there.

Looking at putting a Focal iBUS 2.1 there.

Hi everyone,

I think this is my first post in like 10 years, and the first for my wife's GD i30 Tourer CRDi (auto, 2013). It's our family workhorse (two toddlers).

Firstly - technical background on our car - bought from dealer at 24k km in 2014, 65,000kms now, never had an issue, serviced by book. Has generally been a great perfect-sized car in the suburbs as well as out on the open road (we drive from Sydney to Coffs every year).

Lately, I've noticed a noticeable increase in road noise in the car, particularly at 60km/h - a humming noise, not exactly a "whoop whoop" type of noise associated with scalloped tyres (which I experienced many years ago), but a distinct hum loud enough to annoy me. As the speed in...

Breaking stuff
How does one remove a 2012 i30 manual petrol motor? Up thru the bonnet opening or drop the lot out underneath the car?
