Hyundai I30 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai I30 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Does my 2012 Hyundai i30 petrol need a timing belt change at 100,000km?
Petrol versions of the Hyundai i30 from this era have a rubber, toothed timing-belt. This is a clean, quiet running arrangement, but it does require replacement at 90,000km intervals. The advice is to change the tensioners, associated pulleys and the engine’s water pump at the same time as all these components wear out and are located in the same general area, making it a smart move to do all this work in one hit, rather than pull the engine apart a second time.Show more
Hyundai i30 or Accent 2012: Good second hand cars?
They’re quite reliable with no major issues to be concerned about. The main things are the overall condition of the car, the kilometres travelled and the service history. If all those boxes can be ticked the car should be fine.Show more
Hyundai i30 2012: Does it have faulty airbags?
The reality is that things do go wrong on cars and sometimes we have to pay to have them fixed. Your car is eight years old. I wouldn’t quibble with it; I’d just fix it.Show more
Reliable secondhand small autos?
Unless you are buying a manual I would rule the Cruze out, the automatic is trouble in that model and not worth the risk. If you do but a Cruze I would choose the 1.8-litre engine. Others to think of are the Hyundai i30, Mazda 3, or Mitsubishi Lancer.Show more
