New Generation i30 diesel service schedule
« August 21, 2018, 07:10:05 »
Just joined and first post so please be gentle!  :confused:

I am a driving instructor and have just bought an 18 plate i30 1.6 CRDI SE model with 5500 on the clock. I do around 40-50k miles a year and want to keep the engine in tip top condition so want it servicing regularly but don't want to pay main dealer prices.

I know the service interval is 20k miles, and that different levels of service are required at different mileages, but what I'm trying to find (and can't find it on the 'net) is what each different service is comprised of so that I can take the schedule to my local garage and get them to price it up and to do the service for me.  Does anyone have any links?

Also, would you recommend an oil and filter change halfway between services?

Welcome :)

All service schedules and requirement checks should be listed in your Owners Manual and Service and Warranty Passport.

Personally I've never understood why Euro service intervals are set so high, 20,000 miles is double our service interval times and even at that length the oil is nearing it's usefullness, pure synthetic PAO oils have the longest protection capabilities and even those say maximum 19,000km's = 11.800miles.

Being a new car I think your services would be capped through Hyundai so they might be quite competitive in service costs for the first few years at least :undecided:

If you don't have it, get it from your vendor. :TutTut:

 :wts:  Wow! I'm surprised at such big mileage.  Normally big mileage in a short time is good for an engine,  but I'm guessing yours is made up of many short trips so for the reasons Craig said would be worth doing interim oil and filter changes. We can help you identify the right oil and filter for your car so you can source them cheaply, maybe even in bulk to reduce ongoing costs too.  :victory:

At least you will be able to claim a tax deduction I guess too.  :goodjob:

I've attached a service schedule from when my car was last serviced. It's a 2015 i30 but I think the schedule is the same. It goes without saying that not having it serviced by a dealer could give then an excuse for not honouring the warranty. I change the engine oil myself every 10,000 miles, using the recommended Shell Helix AG, and a genuine Hyundai filter (which is a Mahle branded part). Although the manual states the oil capacity is 5.3 litres, I find that a 5 litre can of oil fills it up to the MAX mark on the dipstick.

The 2 year service interval is to make the car cheaper to run for the benefit of the big fleet buyers. They're not bothered as long as the car will last for 3 years by which time they will have sold it on.

Make sure you read the severe operating conditions servicing conditions which generally will state more frequent changes.

Personal preference , I do my FD diesels @ 6 months or 10000km, oil + filter change.

My original 2009.5 model year UK spec 1.6 crdi had a 12,500 mile service interval. From the outset I had it serviced independently every 20,000 miles and kept it for just over 8 years and 288,800 miles. Warranty issues were still dealt with by the supplying dealer.
Its replacement is a new PD 1.6 crdi which in 6 just over months has clocked up over 25,000 miles. It has a 20,000 mile service interval and had its first service at 20,000 miles at the tried and trusted independent garage that maintained my previous one.
In my experience frequent servicing and oil changes are not necessary and decent independent garages can obtain all the information and parts that they need.
