I am looking at fitting a tow bar to my 2004 Elantra hatchback, does anyone know if I can wire it straight in or need something because of the computer? thanks

I have owned my Hyundai Elantra since 2005 and was brand new and have loved it but for about two or three years (it is serviced at home) I have my warning light on all the time for my airbag. I was told by one Hyundai repairer that it was the seatbelt and would cost so many dollars and it hasnt been fixed. Because of the airbag recall should I be concerned? It has only 101,000.00 mileage.

The Hyundai is not mentioned in the list of vehicles with airbags that are faulty. Check here https://www.productsafety.gov.au/recalls/compulsory-takata-airbag-recall/takata-airbag-recalls-list. Can't be too careful these days.

Hi Tammy, sounds complex and something a visit to your local mechanic or Hyundai dealer would be able to help with.

i'm not one that knows too much about cars, but with that said there are pros and cons here... in short, i'd do it personally.

the elentra has done less km. a bigger engine and as such should handle better with less km on it (just from an engine POV). if you need the extra space but don't wanna get a big car i would also suggest this (the coupe's can fit heaps in them!). to be frank it sounds too good to be true, because the echo's don't really hold their value (compaired ot the yarris or the corolla).

with that said try to take the elentra for a test drive. Look at the tyes! (if they're bad you'll be looking at about $400-$600 to replace them brand new). Pay attention to the transmission, check the oil levels and colours. hop online and look for 'used car buying checklist' or something like that. sounds like a good deal so i'd be looking at whats wrong with the elentra.

also, make sure what you're swapping isn't a turd with wheels either, be honest about its faults (if any) just so there's no bad blood and annoyances down the line.

We have a 2003 elantra and after it hit 100,000k's it's had nothing but problems, there are too many to go into but at the moment were waiting for a gear shift cable which is being sent from korea which needs replacing, just in the last year we've spent over $2000.00 on the pile of junk, we have owned this car since about oct 2015 and get it serviced everytime it's due, we look after it but in my opinion I wouldn't recommend swapping or buying one.

You might be able to purchase the car by driving around to see if anyone has one for sale or you could try looking in a car magazine or internet online sights such as the trading post or gumtree Australia

As they have a quite powerful 2.0ltr 105kw engine, they do suck a little more fuel than you would think. If your doing a bit more city driving than cruising you should expect around 10ltr per 100kms. If your on the highway and getting poor economy then get the timing belt checked as they're surprisingly good for cruising due to they're overall lightweight (lighter than an 14 corolla hatch). Good value car mate

mine is getting better after full service, got only 8.7 driving both on highway n around city. before around 10 ltr/100.

if the immobiliser if deffinitely faulty, you can replace it with an aftermarket unit for about $130 plus about $350 for installation.

Take it to hyandai Australia workshop as they are usually better at specialised cars / otherwise you could try a trustworthy honest and reliable auto electrician

I would also like to add / my suggestion is not to drive the car until you have the problems fixed as the brakes rely on the engine for pressure to make the braking system work properly
