Hyundai i30 2013: Cracked sunroof
It seems you have been, and continue to be treated appallingly.
I cannot believe that the problem hasn't been sorted. If it is beyond the dealer, and Hyundai in Australia, to fix it they should fly a technician out from Korea to fix it.
We have contacted Hyundai to seek help in sorting the problem.

Best options for small SUV or hatchback?
You need to decide on whether you want an SUV or a hatch before you do anything else. The SUV gives you a better view of the road, is practical, and the CX-3 is a good choice, but hatches can also be attractive. I would rule out the Mazda2 in your case, as it would seem to be too small for your needs, but the 3, Corolla and i30 are all good cars that would deliver on the things you want.

Turbos can fail for a variety of reasons, but one that is common is the oil supply. That's not to say that that's what's wrong with your car. You could have your car checked by a turbo specialist.
Best mid-size car for city and camping?
You need to simplify your needs and wants. Most, if not all new cars have the sort of features you want. The more pressing issue is the choice of SUV or hatch. While a hatch might be best for your city needs, it probably wouldn't suit your camping needs, so I would rule that out and focus on a compact SUV. Of all the models you have looked at I would select the Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Hyundai i30: Radio not covered by warranty
I was shocked to hear this and then have it confirmed by Hyundai Australia. CarsGuide believes the five-year warranty should cover the radio, since there is none of the "wear and tear" that affects tyres and brakes, even if it is detailed in the Hyundai Service Passport together with two years/40,000km for the battery. So, instead of The Tick, Hyundai gets The Kick from Roadside Assist.

Great advice and not something I knew.
Replacing an i30 headlamp globe
Headlamp globes are listed in the warranty as consumables and not covered. It's the same with all carmakers Hyundai is no different. It's not a big deal.
