Hyundai i45 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai i45 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ignition light dead in i45
Check for possible damage that might have been done by those who 'borrowed' your car. It's possible that the battery is completely dead, but I think that's unlikely. Take it to a Hyundai dealer and have them try to find the cause of the problem.
Opinion on i45?
New cars often arrive here without having been tuned to our roads and driving styles, and the i45 was one of those when it first went on sale. As a result it copped some flak from motor-noters for its ride and handing, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a decent car. I wouldn't take the comments at face value, I would suggest that you drive the car yourself and make up your own mind.
i45 engine failure
Missing the services really clouds the issue, as you don't know if the problem might have been picked up before it became a major issue. There's not a lot you can do, you need to find an engine and get your car going. You would be unlucky for it to happen again. You could also try to convince Hyundai to come to the party with part payment for the repairs, which might help alleviate the financial burden for you.
Selling an i45 with a spun bearing
I would say don't sell it; fix it. It will be very hard to sell when it needs a new engine, so I would take it to a wrecker specializing in Hyundais and they should have a suitable replacement they could install for you. If you sell as it is you will take a bath on it.
