Hyundai i30 2008: Is 240,000km a lot for a diesel?

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Jan 2018

No, it’s not, but it does depend somewhat on the way it’s been driven. Diesel engines in trucks and taxis do a lot of kilometres, partly because they are running all the time and rarely cooling down, but a family car driven around town does a lot of sitting around not going anywhere, which means it regularly cools down and warms up again. That leads to engine wear, and lower engine life. I wouldn't expect 240,000 km to be an issue.

We have had another Hyundai owner contact us with the same problem, and Hyundai, to its credit, eventually fixed the problem by fitting another antenna. Go back to your dealer and ask that they do the same for you.
