Testimonials
As the heading says "5 months on".
We've had "i" for 5 months,  11200 km clocked up. Time to rotate tyres & check alignment.

PRO'S
economy,  comfortable & supportive leather seats,  good forward and side vision,  steering is direct with  (dare I say it) good feel,  suspension is well sorted, A/C is damn cold, plenty of poke when tromped

CON'S:
Scratchy finish on 2 interior door handles - replaced.
Mic for phone - picks up road & engine noise 60% of the time  ( possible recall coming )
Rear vision not great, (it's a hatch -still no worse than a SS with rear wing )

DEALER SERVICE :
Organized door handles,  managed to chip a piece (5mm square ) out of paint at top of L/H guard -...

Administrator Comment Split from :link: Upgrade GD-02 to GD-03
Hi everyone,

I've got a 2015 model with the GD-02 fitted (with reverse camera but no sat nav). I'm seeing the GD-03 head units becoming more regularly available now:

:link: HYUNDAI I30 RADIO/CD PLAYER/DVD/ MP3/WMA/AUX/BLUETOOTH,TOUCH SCREEN GD, O5/12- 1 | eBay

That one is $200 + $15 postage. As time goes by (and more people write off their cars) these will become common.

As there's no pinout on the back, I ca...

Suspension Springs
I'm in the UK , and have a 2010 1.6CRDi wagon
Looking at the VIN, it's a 2011 model year version , built in the Czech republic. Using this , I ordered a set of front struts and coil springs (all KYB)
Unfortunately , the coil springs are never going to fit the struts - the diameter is far too small. LOoking at the KYB catalogue , there are two front spring specs - one for Korean-spec cars , another for Czech-spec cars. Looks like I'll need the Korean-spec ones , even though the car was built in the Czech republic. Is this common with these ? I know the Czech plant was new then , has anyone else come across mixing and matching of components ?

Door Locking
So in the line of duty doing some research for this question, :link: leak in the electrical installation?

My car now no longer recognises the remote to unlock. Go to use the key, it won't lock with that either. It will lock with the push button lock all on the door, and will unlock with the key. One may be an existing fault I was unaware of as I don't keylock but the remote loss happened after I disconnected the earth and went looking to see what current draw was happening in the background.

Any ideas? Simple re-learn or is this a bloody dealer  charge?

Vibration
Hi there,
We have also just had our car diagnosed as needing a new clutch. Initially at 76,000 kms we reported an engine vibration at around 1600-1900rpm which was dismissed as being due to damage on the car from hitting a Kangaroo. We thought this was fair enough (although it had started prior) given it would be reasonable on their part to assume it was from our accident. Reported it again at 90,000km service. At 105,000 the problem was diagnosed as a weakening of the dampening mechanism. Both the service manager and mechanic acknowledged there was left than 50% wear and tear and a warranty claim submitted and rejected by Hyundai last Monday arguing it was wear and tear. We have refuse to accept this and our grievances were put in wri...

Possessed
Hi everyone

My i30 2010 model which is a manual petrol motor and has 130000ks on it keeps stalling when i drive it  gets to operating temp then when i park it at the shops for a couple of hours and drive it again it stalls while slowing down to stop at traffic lights or for traffic.

It does not stall if i drive it directly from point a to point b, only when you stop for a couple of hours and then drive again so the vehicle is still warm. If i park the vehicle all day and then drive it again after it is cold it does not stall i am confused any advice would be great.

Steering
I just dropped the Wife off in her 2008 i30 CRDI and noticed a knock on the steering. I read on another thread that there had been a recall :link: Hyundai Motor Company Australia Pty Ltd?Hyundai i30 (FD) Vehicle | Product Safety Australia
I rang the local dealer where we purchased the car and they said to bring it in next week as they can't look at it until after easter. Anyway I decided to take a closer look and could feel the play in the steering and knocking both when engine running and not running. First of all I drove the car up on ramps but nothing much to see as steering shaft etc mostly sealed....

i30 in the news
Hi All,

As some of you are aware, an invitation to a couple of group members was offered recently to attend the HMCA dealer launch of the new 2017 i30 at the new Sydney International Convention Centre.
This is just a short quick overview - we'll get into the details in a follwing post.

Trevor (@Surferdude) & I attended yesterday along with Justin from Hy.life forum (Veloster). We were invited by Oliver (HMCA Dir Marketing) & our host for the day was Bill (General Manager External Affairs).
Trevor & Justin were flown by HMCA & being a local I just caught the bus  :undecided:
It was a full on organised gig and aimed at giving the dealer network an overview of the new i30's...
