Ask Smithy Xtra Hyundai Elantra GLS tyres

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Aug 2011

The tyres fitted were indeed an option on the Elantra, they’re a little fatter with a lower profile than the standard tyres. You could fit either, so I would shop around and see which is the cheaper.

Safer to change belt

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Mar 2006

THE 90,000km service is important, and part of that is changing the camshaft timing belt. Though it is done as a precaution, the consequences of not changing it far exceed the cost of replacing it at the recommended time. Should the belt fail, you will probably badly damage your engine, the repair of which would cost thousands of dollars.

Windy window

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Nov 2004

TRACING wind noise can be tricky because it can come from several sources. The door seal is an obvious one, but that could be eliminated by applying a strip of tape over the gap between the door and the body after the door has been closed. If the noise goes away, the seal could be the problem. If not, check around the rear-view mirrors. These are often a source of complaint. As cars become better built and more refined, some noises are eliminated, which means others that you didn't notice before become more obvious.
