Hyundai IX35 2011 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai ix35 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Hyundai ix35 2011: Where do I take my car to fix electrical glitches?
With that list of problems, I’d be looking at having the body computer checked, at either a Hyundai dealership or a known automotive electronics specialist. Modern cars have computers to control not just the engine and driveline’s behaviour, but also the functions you’ve mentioned.
Central locking and sunroof problems are classic examples of a body computer that is not playing the game. You might find a specialist can reboot the computer to fix these flaws, but you may also be looking at a complete computer replacement.
But before you do any of that, try this little hack: Lock the vehicle and when you press the button to unlock it, hold the unlock button down for at least 30 seconds. Believe it or not, this can sometimes re-set the body computer and will fix all your problems. It’s a bit of a long-shot, but definitely worth a try.
Nearly new SUVs suitable for families?
I would rule out the CX-7 on the basis of poor fuel consumption, the performance of the iX35 petrol version is a little lacking, the Tucson is a better car, but I would suggest the X-Trail is probably your best bet.
Best medium sized SUV for around $40,000?
Hyundai iX35 brake wear
Brake wear is an issue that crops up regularly with most makes, not only Hyundai. It's a fact of life that brakes wear out much faster than they once did, and it's down to a number of things, like the removal of asbestos from brake linings, softer disc material, the introduction of ABS braking etc, heavier traffic, more traffic lights etc. They all contribute.
