Hyundai i30 2011: Why is my car stalling?

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Mar 2020

This sounds awfully like a sensor problem of some sort. Electronic sensors really do control every aspect of a modern car, from the engine to the dashboard and everything in between. So, it’s conceivable that your problem is the fault of a single sensor that is throwing multiple things out of kilter and causing the problems.

But why the engine and dashboard at the same time? Because a car’s computer will often take its cues from a variety of sources. Without a properly functioning dashboard (and the information on road-speed the speedometer supplies to the computer) some engines won’t even run at all. The rough running and hard starting could be another symptom of this.

But don’t rule out something simple like a battery or charging system that is not pulling its weight. Low battery voltage can do strange and random things to a modern, electronically-controlled car.

Hyundai i30 2011: What warranty is offered on a new transmission?

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Aug 2018

On the surface it does seem unreasonable that the new transmission is not covered by the warranty. I would press Hyundai for an explanation of the problem, and an answer as to why the replacement transmission isn’t covered. If that doesn’t get a satisfactory response I would contact the Consumer Affairs people in Victoria and enlist their help.

Hyundai i30 2011: Will my clutch need replacing?

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Jul 2018

Clutches do wear out and need to be replaced, and you will need to do that in the future when yours wears out. The mileage you quote is within the normal range.

Best small to medium diesel cars?

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Mar 2017

It's probably easier to eliminate those that don't stack up, those being the VW Golf, Holden Cruze and Ford Focus.

All have transmission questions over them.

The best options would be the Mazda 3 and the Hyundai i30.

Hyundai i30 paintwork

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Nov 2011

It's under warranty, so take it back to the dealer and have them deal with it. It could be that a cut and polish would sort it out. If you'd like an independent assessment check your local motor trades association and have them refer you to a paint specialist.

Ask Smithy Xtra Hyundai i30 diesel fuel consumption

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Aug 2011

We contacted Hyundai on Mark Pearson’s behalf and we received the following from a company spokesman:

“Fuel consumption figures displayed in accordance with ADR 81/02 are based on a static laboratory combined city and highway cycle test. They are not tested on the road. As a result, actual fuel consumption will vary. This is due to a combination of driving conditions, driving style as well as the condition of the vehicle. (e.g. air-conditioning, fuel type/quality used, weight, tyre pressures, wind, average speed, etc.).

These figures are therefore most useful to compare the relative performance of different vehicles – they all undergo the same test. The average motorist will experience consumption of approx 15-35 percent higher than what is stated on the fuel label due to the conditions that the laboratory test cannot simulate. Mr. Pearson’s vehicle is just over one month old, optimal fuel consumption figures are not likely to be achieved until the vehicle has travelled 10-15,000 km.”

If you apply the maximum variation Hyundai quotes you would get fuel consumption of a little over 6 L/100 km, which is about what he gets.

Ask Smithy Xtra Servicing a Hyundai i30

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Apr 2011

Carmakers are stretching oil change intervals all the time, mostly to reduce the cost of servicing of their cars, and the quality today’s oils allow them to do it. But I too would prefer to change oils more frequently, and in particular change the oil at the first service. That way you clean out any rubbish or grit that is left in the engine from the production process. It’s good insurance.
