Hyundai Excel Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Excel here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Can my Hyundai Excel take E10 fuel?
No. Hyundai only recommends E10 for cars built after October 2003.
Ask Smithy Xtra Hyundai Excel brake pads
On a small car like that I would expect the pads to last 40,000-50,000 km, so I wouldn’t expect the pads to be worn out yet. It could be that the disc rotors themselves need to be replaced. If the pedal is going too far down and feels like it’s not stopping the car very well I would get the brakes bled.
Excel gear lever problems
It sounds like a problem with the gearshift itself, and may have been caused by wear. If that's the case it should be a reasonably simple, inexpensive repair.
Ask Smithy Xtra 'Check engine' light in Excel
You need to get it checked by a mechanic with diagnostic equipment, particularly as it will become your daughter’s car and you don’t want it breaking down. It’s possibly the engine management computer that’s playing up, but you won’t know until you have it checked.
