Hyundai Getz 2011: Trouble getting into reverse gear?

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Feb 2012

I doubt there is anything wrong. When it happens just engage one of the other gears and try reverse again. If it persists and gets worse have your dealer make sure the clutch is fully disengaging.

Hyundai Getz 2004: Low trade-in value

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Sep 2011

The trade-in value for the 2004 Getz is $2700 to $6000 depending on the model, so the value you have been quoted is well down on what you could expect. Ask the dealer to show you the hail damage, in other words have him justify his valuation, or better still shop around at other dealers.

Disconnecting the battery before charging

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Jun 2011

There's no real reason to disconnect your battery when recharging it as long as the ignition is off when you do it.

Hyundai Getz 2010: Poor fuel economy

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Jan 2011

Hyundai claims your car should do 9.4 L/100 km in urban driving conditions. That's what they get under standard test conditions, and while that doesn't necessarily translate to the real world it is a guide as to what you could expect. On that basis your car is using too much fuel, but not enough to cause too much alarm at this stage. It is still quite new and the fuel consumption should come down as the engine beds in with more miles. I would take Hyundai's advice and monitor it through to the 15,000 km service and if it is still too high have the dealer run a diagnostic check on it.

Hyundai Getz 2005: Remote failed

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Jan 2011

It could be local interference. I would consult a local locksmith for starters and have them check the lock. Most locksmiths now have the capability of checking and programming keys and could have the local knowledge to tell you if it is interference. You could also check local radio hams, who might be able to help.

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Jun 2010

It shouldn't be a big deal to massage the headrest to your requirements. Any mechanic should be able to do it for you.

Hyundai Getz 2008: Ongoing problems since new

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Apr 2010

The car is just 18 months old and is still under warranty, so stick with the dealer. Going away from the dealer will only complicate matters down the track if you ever have to make a warranty claim, no matter how good your mechanic is. Be persistent in seeking a resolution to your problem and don't be fobbed off.

Hyundai Getz 2004: Wheel wobble at high speed?

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Dec 2009

IF YOU are unhappy with the car take it back to the place of purchase. You have no claim against the dealer who sold the car in the first place, the deal you have done is with the person you bought the car from. If you have no satisfaction there you could claim it wasn't fit for the purpose for which it was sold and pursue some form of compensation.
