Peeling paint but a car which runs well

Car runs well, economical with petrol and never had any major issues. Biggest issue is the peeling paint. It is continually coming off the car and it is peeling in more spots in bigger pieces. Show details

Worst company ever

Worst car company ever. Brought my i20 in 2016 brand new, after 2 years the paint began to peel. It now comes off in chunks and I have a considerable amount missing on my drivers door, around the front window, and the back of my car is practically grey all over. When I mentioned it to a dealer when it began I was told it was ‘sun damage’ and it was ‘normal,’ I’m too scared to wash the car in case the paint comes off, I can’t sell it to a dealership cos they won’t take any, and to resell costs a fortune. Would not recommend this at all. Show details

Horrible Paint on Car's metal body, peels off easily

Extremely sloppy paint job on the car, Hyundai only provide a 3 year warranty on paint and no concession in case of wear and tear prior to the 10yr period, no undercoat and the paint peels off the metal very easily Show details

Very unhappy

I purchased my i20 in 2013 while it’s been a reliable car the paint is bubbling anD peeling off back and front. Interior is cracking around sun visa. The plastic under handle of blood is cracking. Both spare and main keys fell apart. I am a 72 year old woman and am not rough with my car. Very dissapointed I will never buy Hyundai again. I did ring regarding paint work and had no satisfaction. Poor customer service. I have only done $70000 ks. The car should still look brand new. Now I have to go to the expense of buying a new car. Show details

shocking paint work and electrical

The paint is peeling all over the car and the electrical wiring is cutting in out meaning when I trun the wheel the air con shuts in and out along with the radio. Sent my complaints to hyundai robina qld said nothing they can do out of warranty just basicly wiped there hands clean. Very dissapointed as I have brought my cars from them brand new all the time.  Show details

Poor paint job

I purchased an I20 for my daughter 2016 by 2018 with 18,000km on the clock the paint was falling off it. Hyundai agreed to repaint the area affected. By 2020and 38000 on the clock the whole car was starting to bubble and paint fall off. It took three months of complaining it was only when I took over it and threatened legal action did Hyundai come through with agreeing to repaint it. There service is poor and if you google Hyundai's paint you will see they have a terrible reputation. It is now costing them 7,000 to repair the damage. I have brought three cars of Hynudai and this is the last one great engines nasty company Show details

Great Little Car~

Bought a manual i20 (new) 4 years ago. It's a terrific, zippy little car with excellent fuel economy. Very easy to park. Amazing fuel economy on highway runs! Very reasonable service costs and the 10 year Roadside Assist is a bonus. Such a shame they are no longer being imported into Australia.

Most uncomfortable seats of any car I've owned!!

The front seats are uncomfortable due to there being a bar across your lower back of both front seats.

Hyundai say they will supply the parts under "Goodwill" but the dealer says I'm to pay for 4 hours labour for the repairs to be done. NEVER will I buy a Hyundai again. Found so called "Customer Care" rude and the polar opposite of the meaning.

This is the best little car

Love driving this car easy to handle great fuel economy.

Only one thing I can fault is it did not come with cruise control.

Cannot believe they do not make them any more would trade to next model. There is no noise driving it. Services at Hyundai very reasonable. Courtesy car is a great option when working.

Perfect Single Person Car

Great car.

Easy to keep clean

I have had this car for under a year and it certianly has given me joy and a ease of use. If your looking for a powerful small car this one certainly isn’t the one for you.

Strongly recommend this vehicle for a P player.

The inside door handle chrome cover has come off- and cut my hand nicely as it did. The result is now the door handle needs a new chrome replacement but I don’t where to get this and how much it will cost.

Pic a Part. These bits should survive most total loss crashes.

Do any other model car rims fit a 2013 Hyundai i20

GraemeJohnstone
GraemeJohnstone  

That will depend on : Stud patten, center hole and the relationship of studs to rolling tire center, PCD..
So not just if it fits. Same goes for tire size which all could lead to pink slips failed road worthy or W O F. Why bother?
