(14th April 2013) 2010 Hyundai i30 Diesel Manual Hatchback by Gerry
Bought this car Feb 2010 as a driving instructor I need a car that dependable that's what I got in this car the only problem I had was the door handles 3 out the 4 on the car had to be changed the warranty sorted this no problem this car has covered over 100000 miles oh and have put 1 clutch in this car now that's good the last car in 2 year's had put 2 clutch's in this was not a hyundai its comming time for me to be thinking of a new car but I can tell you now it will be a hyundai probably 2012/2013 model.The only problem I have had is the Dealer very slow in getting repairs carried out 3 week's for a clutch which can be done in a few hour's but an easy fix I just go to a different dealer.
It may be Korean, but it's winner for me. Even my friends like it
(7th December 2011) 2008 Hyundai i30 by S,Clarke
Bough a 2008, 1.6 CRDi(115bhp) 2nd hand. with only 21k. Its a premium spec so comes with full black leather, heated from seats, climate control, rear parking sensors, ipod connection, 4 e/w, too much to list.
The insurance is expensive, but I'm only 20, so this is expected, and road tax is a respectable £90 per year (2009+models are only £30!)
Faults wise the starter motor went after 25k on it, however the well backed up 5 years warranty helped sort this issue. I have owned this car since March 2010, and since then have racked up over 24k miles. Every last one has been a joy. And the car has lasted well. A very smooth driving car, and a comfortable ride for all.Handles very well(i Installed sports springs, still rides very well, and handles even better, with less body roll and understeer).
Compliments are even given from my friends, who are impressed with the quality and finish of the car.
I would definitely buy another Hyundai as I love the reliability and standard equipment on them.
