What new cars do you recommend?

If she’s been happy with her Accent, then perhaps a Hyundai i30 Active would be a good bet. It has Bluetooth, a rear view camera and GPS standard, so ticks all the boxes.

Hyundai Accent 2016: Car stopping

Answered by CarsGuide 3 May 2019

It’s a problem with the car’s electronics, but because it only happens intermittently it’s hard for the dealer to find the cause, and thus the fix. All you can do it is to persist with the dealer and hope the cause can be found.

Hyundai Accent 2016: Is a used Hyundai better than a new Suzuki?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Jan 2019

Both are good cars and should give you reliable motoring for many years to come. The servicing costs are similar. The Hyundai is only three years old and has only done minimal kilometres, so should by in near-new condition if it has been looked after and well serviced. Against that the Baleno is new and has a five-year warranty.

There is no reason to think that you would need to change either car within the period you mention.

How long should I wait for a software update to correct the surging in my 2016 Hyundai Accent?

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Mar 2018

Has Hyundai agreed to supply a software update? If they have I would think they would be able to supply it within a few weeks at most; if they haven’t you need to negotiate with them to come to an arrangement that satisfies your complaint.

2016 Hyundai Accent electrical fault

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Mar 2018

Being so new the car should still be under warranty, so I would take it back to the Hyundai dealer you bought it from and ask that they run a diagnostic check on it. If that fails to show up anything wrong, ask the dealer to call in Hyundai’s service representative for help.

Surging problem in a '16 Hyundai Accent

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Nov 2017

You have clearly been given the run-around by whoever told you that. Talk to your dealer, and ask for a mechanic to go for a ride with you to observe what it is that is bothering you. That way they might be able to understand your complaint and fix it for you. If you feel very strongly about it, ask for a Hyundai technician to go with you.

2016 Accent SR losing power to radio and clock

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Sep 2016

Your car is still in warranty, so you should be talking to your dealer about the problem and what is causing it. If they cannot give you a satisfactory explanation talk to Hyundai's customer service people (1800 186 306). You could also talk to an auto electrician about the problem.

Best small car for city driving?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Jun 2016

You're not alone feeling the stress of choosing a new car. Toyota's Yaris is the safe choice but you should test drive the Suzuki Swift, since it also gets The Tick. Bargain hard on your favourite.
