Hi All, I am looking at purchasing a 2nd hand i30 Auto Wagon 2.0l Petrol. The car I'm looking at is in Brisbane (Tamborine) and has been owned from new by the seller, with full log book history. Am viewing the car tomorrow, and service history, so don't know what's been done to it yet.
However, I already did the Revs check and called Hyundai Australia to determine if part of any recall.
They advised that it shows as part of the ESC MODULE recall and showing as not done yet?
What exactly is this recall and what can it affect?
Vehicle is 2010 model SLX and has done 112,291 klm
I have tried calling the seller back to ask why they've not yet had the car fixed under recall but not answering the phone atm.
Do some c...

i30 in the news
I received this link in a Veloster email a few days back.  If you compare the Wheels pics to these, you'll notice some differences.  It appears that Wheels used mock ups.

I recently got a 2011 i30 which is great except the stereo constantly has the AUX turned on and then randomly cuts in over the radio to say connected. Just a bit annoying. Does anyone know how to turn it off?

Limped home after hearing a high-pitched wine, then a rumbling from engine area, loss of power and thick clouds of smoke from the exhaust. Only had it two days. Oh dear.

Any suggestions as to what this might be? Had similar on a Rover 75 and it was the turbo.

Hey fellas

Something odd I noticed a while back but haven't paid much attention to as we are currently in a drought is that when I activate my rear wiper with the stalk it will sweep about 60% of the way then stop and pause for a few seconds before continuing on it's merry way.

Also, normally when turning the setting off it returns to the 'home' position but lately if I stop it if it's not at the 'home' position it will just stop wherever it happens to be on the glass and pause there until I turn it back on again and stop it when it rests at the 'home' position.

Man, I hope I am making sense :mrgreen: but that is the gist of it

Otherwise the car is still going very well and I have no gripes other ...

Hi all, I have a 2013 i30 elite 5dr & recently an incredibly annoying electronic beeping noise has been occurring every time I'm driving for the past 4-5 mths. The sound comes through the speakers interrupting anything else that I'm listening to whether it's radio or podcast etc. The radio & podcast is completely blocked out when the beeps come through. Sometimes there are one or two, other times 5 or 6. And it happens numerous times whilst driving I thought it might have been something to do with my iPhone & picking up reception signals but it still happens when I don't have my phone in the car

Hoping someone out there can help. It's driving me nuts!!!

Door Locking
Hi Folks
My drivers side rear door lock won't work now and again and its getting more frequent. 
At least twice a week now.
I'm guessing its the actuator that's faulty, but that's just a guess and I've not been in there as yet to look at it. 
Has anyone replaced the actuator and can give some guidance on this.
I found a simple 'walk through' on a different model on the UK site, link below.
Also the Hyundai part for this is around $423 so I'm guessing, (again), one from a breaker at around $100 will be the way to go.
Unfortunately that come with a risk i.e. it could be on its 'way out' too ?
So, can anyone assist with the best place to find a replacement and a 'how too guide' of some sort please !...

Ok, so I've done about 60 kms since picking our new DCT PD i30 SR up on Friday. (so showing nearly 100kms on the clock)

Normally I do about 1000kms in the first week, but have all sorts of other things happening at the moment.

So in no particular order.

- Already had one very positive comment about the styling (see separate thread here) :link: Dazzler family now has two i30's

- Valve caps on alloy wheels have been colour coded to the silver alloys (not black or stainless) - nice touch.

- LED light comes on behind front two door handles when you approach the car with a proximity key in your pocket!  :eek:

Had a chap called Harold come to our Garage sale today with a 2008 2.0 ltr Petrol Auto Hatch he has had since new.

They have been very happy with it but recently, every now and then they will be driving around on the highway and go to accelerate and there is some hesitation.

They have had the plugs and ignition leads replaced and it may have improved slightly, but it is still happening. Someone gave him the impression from what they have read on the net  :evil: it may be a transmission issue.

I told him about my association with the club and quizzed him about how the Transmission behaves when selecting Reverse and Drive and sounds like no delay there. I said, doesn't sound like Transmission to me. He asked ...
