Should I sell my 2013 Hyundai iMax because it's problematic?

Asked by Wendy

My 2013 Hyundai iMax has lost power. It's been at Hyundai's dealership for a week now and they tell me it’s an EGR valve and cooler. I've heard a lot about injector seals leaking, blowing turbos and engines. My diesel mechanic recommends you change seals every 80,000 km and mine is at 100,000 km. A turbo parts company has also told me I should replace a hose (can't remember were in engine it is) that the oil runs through and put a filter on it to catch any crap that may flow through. I'm still not confident that there won't be a problem with the turbo blowing. Warranty runs out in another five months. Do I keep it, or do I sell it? I'd like to know what you've heard about these issues.

The EGR valve and cooler are common problems. If it’s running ok, and you regularly service it and change the oil I don’t see any reason to panic-sell it.
