Hyundai ix35 2011: Where do I take my car to fix electrical glitches?

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Jan 2020

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?

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Jun 2017

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.

In order, I would suggest you consider the VW Tiguan, Kia Sportage, and Mazda CX-5. All are reliable, drive nicely, and are well equipped.

Hyundai ix35 2011: Excessive brake wear

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Nov 2012

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.
