Hyundai ix35 2010: Drops out of gear

Answered by CarsGuide 3 May 2013

It's always hard to find the cause of a problem you can't witness firsthand, so the only thing you can do at this stage is persist with the dealer and hope they can track it down for you. In the meantime note every instance of the issue, recording time, place, circumstances, engine speed, gears etc. so you can give the dealer the maximum amount of information possible.

Hyundai ix35 2010: Rapid brake wear

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Jan 2013

It's a course worth considering. Rapid brake wear, both pads and rotors, is not confined to Hyundai, many makes suffer from the same issue, it's a consequence of the demand for better braking efficiency. That said, I would expect rotors to last longer than that, which might give you a claim under the consumer laws. Going that way, however, will test your patience and persistence. It might be better to consult a brake specialist and fit rotors that might last longer.

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.

Straight back to the dealer. If the dealer doesn't know what is causing the problem they can call in the experts from Hyundai. Your car is still under warranty, so Hyundai is responsible for fixing the problem to your satisfaction.
