Now I know we've had one or two with a faulty DCT, but after 2 years with my SR and recently buying Trish a Kona with the same transmission I reckon they are great.

About half the video reviews I've seen criticise the behaviour of the DCT at low speeds in traffic although overall they still like them. But apart from the fact that the SR is a little slow in first gear to get going I've had very little reason to fault it during the first 60,000 kilometres. We haven't had any jerkiness or clunking.

Before anyone says I live in Tasmania with very little stop start traffic, I have driven through Adelaide Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane in my SR without any problems.

If anything Trish's Kona DCT seems ev...

My i30's suffering from an occasional knocking noise from (I think) one of the front wheels or driveshafts.  It's a repeated knock once per wheel revolution, only noticeable at low speeds and regardless of what gear the car's in.

The mileage is about 38,000.

It's as if some debris, like a twig for instance, has got into the vent gap in the front disc and is hitting the caliper with each revolution.  It lasts less than a minute and then goes away completely.  We called the AA once, but their mechanic could find nothing wrong as the noise had disappeared.

I've taken the wheels off and spun the discs.  There's plenty of material on the pads and the front discs measure 22.3mm (right) and 22.5mm (left).

Hi all,

I am not 100% if I am in the right area however I just want to raise a minor concern:

when I drive my '18 SR Premium, on a high way driving at 110km/hr, my steering wheel vibrates, this only happens when I drive over 100 -- I have new wheels on my car since February. Is this normal or should it not be like that?

Does it happen it anyone else?

Hadn't seen this particular review before. I like the way this guy does his reviews. Very honest and straight forward.

Door Handle (internal)
Hi, I earlier fixed my internal door latch cable due to it having snapped. The door was then opening and closing fine. The door has now jammed and will not unlock either from the inside of outside. Is there some sort or reset required?

Check Engine Light
Auto electrician took 11/2 days to replace MDPS coupling on my 2011 Hyundai  cw wagon. Said the computer wouldn't recognize the new part. Picked up car yesterday. Now the Malfunction Indicator lamp is on all the time and air con is not working and heater won't turn off either when switched over. Don't know what's happening .

Hi all,

It's been a few months since I have installed my Android head unit so I thought it may be useful to post up my experience with the unit. I used a few guides off here so I think it's only fair to return some knowledge.

For starters, I have a 2012 i30 GD CRDi and sometime last year my GD-01 head unit started to malfunction. At first, radio became static. This wasn't an issue because I mainly use Bluetooth so it didn't bother me. However, then all audio stopped working - even radio became silent instead of static. Standard functionality other than audio worked, i.e. I could connect with Bluetooth, I could control the unit with steering wheel controls etc, just no audio out.

After a bit of googling, I fo...

I am having an issue with my 2008 i30, which is really killing me.

Quite a while ago, our front wiper starting to acting strange.

Since I donít know the setting names, Iíll be giving my version of the wiper speed stick  :P

Fastest - WORKS
Fast - WORKS
Interval mode - Faulty, only goes halfway and halfway back.
One wipe mode - faulty, halfway per push

Rainy days is no problem, since the fastest speeds works, but light dust rain is becoming hell, since I have to click it twice every time I need to clear the front screen for rain.

The faulty speeds also makes the wiper go out of sync, so it stops right in the middle of the window.

Please guys and...

2013 GD i30 Elite Diesel, just picked it up second hand and it has a weird issue with BT.

When I switch to a BT audio source, it's stuck on "Connecting media player".  Phone calls don't work either.  When I place a call my iPhone cuts back to 'phone'.  Switching to "Bluetooth" mid call has no audio coming out of the speakers and the headunit does not display the phone call being active.

Anyone seen this before?

I have tried radio factory reset, then I paired the BT again. Same problem.

Anything else I can try?

Everything else is fine (Radio, USB, Nav, GPS).
