Hyundai I30 2012 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Hyundai I30 2012 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hyundai i30 registration date confusion
Check with the state registration people who should be able to tell you the date the car was registered. It should be the date the registration falls due each year. Once you have established the date you can move forward with some certainty.

Replacing a Cruze?
I would go for an i30. It's a former Carsguide Car of the Year and you will get a car with the remainder of the five-year warranty
