Hey guys, wondering if anyone else is having this problem?

In July I got a new manual 2016 SR premium (the upgrade one with the red trim) and I'm a little dissapointed.
I went for the 2l thinking it would have a little more grunt and I'm coming from a 08 2l focus zetec so i expected similar.

My lil i30 is truly gutless, especially on any kind of incline. If the revs drop below 3k it dies in the ass, im talking 2nd gear up Mount Ousley kind of gutless, i have to drop to 3rd on some of the hills on the freeway from Syd to Newcastle. My focus would take these is 5th with ease!
I dropped a k&n filter into it and its made a slight difference (went for a run to Nelson this week) but i cant help but think something...

Hi, I bought a 2010  I30 4sp auto this week with only 50,000 kms on the clock (car serviced at dealer where i bought it) , drove it 2km out of the dealership and it jumped from 3rd to 2nd, at the time I wasn't sure what had happened then i found it wouldn't change gear at all, auto box was non responsive and stuck in 2nd. Called the dealer up immediately and returned the car the next day, it did the exact same thing to me on the way back there.

They have had it 3 days and have just called me to say they have replaced the gearbox under the used car warranty, the only info they have given me is that 'something' was slipping in the box and it couldn't be repaired.
I pick the car up after the weekend so i will post again next we...

I was driving today and heard a loud crack and crunch. I could hear the faint sound of little bits of plastic fall to the bottom of the door frame and watched the window slowly sink into the door.

Looks like my power window system has completely failed. I'll have to replace it, anyone done this before?

Alloy Wheel
 I have a Hyundai i30 2008 diesel premium hatchback. The problem is alloy wheels loosing all paint and corroded. REPLACED ONCE WITH BRAND NEW ONES UNDER WARRANTY.

The new ones again have similar problem with corrosion and paint coming off within one year of replacement and the warranty has finished. The manager at the dealer said since it was replaced for free under warranty there is no warranty on the replaced wheels. cant believe they are more worst than the original ones.

original ones got damaged in 4 and half years. The new ones are in the same worst condition within one year of replacing. Since then it has just become worst.

Replace all new wheels cost 1000£ from Hyundai. Please suggest

Suspension Springs
HI All,

 I have a Hyundai i30 2008 diesel hatchback. The problem is at front suspension or steering column area. Noise while driving at potholes or speed bumps. Noise present from 3 years. passes MOT and dealer has checked thrice and never able to find it. I have spent nearly 400£ behind it and not been able to fix. Can anyone please advice what to do? I am really annoyed as car is not under warranty but problem present since the car was under warranty. Dealer not able to fix it but know there is a problem. Replaced drop links three times but didnít help.

Can anyone suggest what to do?

Suspension Springs
Excuse me if I've got the terminology wrong but I've hit a snag working on a suspension changeover.

I've got a workshop manual but don't see this shown. Shows all the arms etc

There's 4 bolts, 19mm socket, not sure if it's M12 bolt.

I can confirm they're in the  "geez they're bloody tight"  region getting them off so I'm thinking 150-180Nm .

Door Locking
Hello everyone,
Dumb situation to be in I'm afraid. I've lost my working 'flipout' key for my 2011 FD 5 Door Hatch, Petrol 1.6lt, Auto, Black. The second flipout key has broken (blade has snapped out of the flipout part) and is inside my car. If I can just break into my car I can find my broken key and get some spares cut. I know there's supposed to be some sort of 'demobiliser' built into the flipout key, but I was able to use just the blade of the key and turn it with pliers to start the car successfully before.

I'm hoping to avoid calling a locksmith, as it will be minimum $350 and there's a chance my spare broken key may not even be inside the car...which I really hope isn't the case!

Anyone done this?  I assume a new fascia like this - :link: Hyundai i30 08-11 Manual Double Din car stereo facia fascia kit dash panel trim | eBay - would be required?

Door Handle (internal)
Hi all
Sorry to restart an old thread, but my door handle has suddenly stopped working.
Does anyone have the TSB number for this particular problem?
I'm not sure whether my Hyundai Dealer is going to play ball regarding supplying a cable. They were going to call me this morning but failed to do so.
Oh, mine's a 2010 i30 1.6 CRDi ....................... and I love it!
Keep up the outstanding work,

Slime  :goodjob2:
