My car seems to think that I have a passenger (front) when no one is in the seat.

The flashing seatbelt light comes on and the alarm beeps for 2 minutes. If I clip the seat belt in it goes away.

Would I be correct that it is just a sensor and my local Hyundai can fix easily?

Also as the car is only 2 Yearís old (im the second owner)would it be covered under warranty?

Door Locking
I am hoping someone may have heard this happening before, since fixing the drivers window regulator the door locks attempt to actuate 4 to 5 times once the key is inserted in ignition, this is not causing a issue it is just damn annoying hearing the clunk clunk clunk each time i get in the car.
Any advice would greatly appreciated. :confused:

Kangaroo start
Hello All,

I recently bought an 2 year old i30 Auto, its been 4-5 days. I have never had a auto before, so cannot say for certain if this is the car or just the fact of life for automatic (DCT) transmissions, but here's what happens.
The start is, on occasion jerky, and the car takes a few seconds to find the right gear/ speed. Also, speeding up is a hit and a miss at low speeds. The ride isn't smooth, its not bad, but I can feel the car constantly trying to second guess and moving the gears, so do not really feel as if I am in control. Also, the stop is always jerky, on applying the breaks the car jerks, even at low speeds.

Is this normal for a car, considering that it is still under manufacturers warranty, do yo...

As I mentioned in previous posts under "General Discussion", my i30 was making an unhealthy sound which was determined to be a timing chain problem. But due to the cost and complexity of doing the repairs with the engine still in the car, my mechanic suggested we get a low mileage motor from a Hyundai wrecker on the Sunshine Coast. He got one with supposedly 75,000 on it, where mine was up at just over 252,000kms. Sounded like a good idea.

I picked it up yesterday with glowing reports from him about what a lovely little car it is to drive. I hadn't gone more than 100 metres in it, when I put the foot down a bit in second gear, and it just died! It restarted OK, but each time I tried to accelerate, it would do it again. By "dying"...

This is a reasonably comprehensive yet simple article on the DPF in diesels.

Hi all

Has anyone done this before or could point me in the right direction?

Hyundai foot rest arrived yesterday but doesn't fit. Do I simply have the wrong part number or will I need to get creative in getting this to fit?

Thanks in advance :) [img width=800 height=450]https...

Problems & Issues
re: i30 PD with Auto Link (ODB connected bluetooth module)

Has anybody else's Auto Link suddenly stopped working after 13th October 2017?
Mine was working "fine" up until that date, and since then, no further comms.
When re-connecting to it, the module shows up and is selectable, but once selected, it can't communicate with the car, to read the VIN for example.
Fails bluetooth connectivity test, blue light doesn't illuminate on the module either.

I am after some advise please. I bought my I-30 a year ago now and only done 4k miles. When I bought it it had a service as part of deal in buying it. Is there any point in servicing it with little millage done? I am in two minds whether its worth it this year and do next year, there are no issues with the car and it runs lovely. Thinking if its not broke don't fix it? I got to MOT the car soon anyway which will bring anything up not aware of.

Thanks in advance.

I wanted to share my experience about buying and installing  extra rubbers for doors, bonnet etc
Something like that

but I have not bought a kit but individualy rubbers p type z type etc. I have links below in my second message.

After installing them I hear for sure  less road noise with a  cost of rubbers that was only 20 pounds. I have tested the car to roads that are harsh and the noise is
reduced significally and I can hear much better the music! Also doors closing noise is better( just need more pressure to close). I can add some photos about the changes I have made this week.

We bought a Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi 110 DCT-7 Blue Drive , Diesel, Automatic, Executive in October 2015. It is LHD and French registered but we have it looked after here in the UK by Johnson of Oxford because the service level we got in France just didnít do it. We love the car, the build quality, thoughtful design and the way it drives.

A couple of months ago with about 18K miles (29k Km) I noticed a juddering when pulling away in traffic or edging forward in queues and the gearbox didnít always want to change down a gear when going up hills in gears below 4th. It is like driving with a learner! Have you experienced this?

It is not a great problem but I thought I should check it out while in the UK as I wouldnít want the...
