Hyundai i20 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Hyundai i20 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Hyundai i20: Key fob replacement
There are automotive locksmiths that might be able to help depending on the circumstancs, and the cost will depend on how old the car is, the variant etc. You can read all about how to replace your car keys here.
Hyundai i20 or i30: Which better secondhand buy?
Even though it’s older I would suggest that the i30 is perhaps the better buy with its low kays, but the i20 is also a good car and hasn’t done a lot of kays. Make sure the odometer readings are genuine; they are low for the ages of the cars.
Best reliable used hatchback on a budget?
The Hyundai i20 and i30 are both fine car, so too is the Lancer, of the three the i30 is the better. You should be able to find a 2010 model with your budget. You won't have any problems with getting parts if you need them, and they are quite reliable, so you shouldn't have any trouble with them in short to medium-term.
Best first small car under $13k
We recently reviewed the Honda City as used car buy. To summarise the City has 5-star safety, which means it has all of the safety features you want, it also has the features your daughter wants. Best of all owners are unanimous in their praise for the car. The price is on the high side, but being a drive-away deal you save on government charges, which makes it a pretty good buy.
i20 condensation in glovebox
Great advice and not something I knew.

Condensation is normal but not dripping into the cabin. It's quite possible there is a blockage somewhere, which can happen if leaves and debris lodge in the plumbing. It's under warranty so get the dealership to investigate and fix it properly.
Suitable sunscreen for i20
My best suggestion would be to find a window tinting company to put a strip across the top of the screen to cut the glare. It needs to be done carefully to ensure there is no legal complication or obscuring the view. No one makes the old-school external visors as they are noisy and adversely affect fuel economy.
Best options for used first car?
The cars you have been looking at are all good, sound and safe ones that have no serious issues to be concerned about and would give you reliable service for many years to come. Note that all of them are from Asia; I would suggest that you rule out anything from Europe. Another to consider would be the Mitsubishi Lancer.
