  i30N Premium with Sunroof

Terrible car, a lemon I'm afraid

Bought i39 NLine Premium with sunroof Feb 2024
In first month had 3 separate instances when steering wheel locks up. A power off and restart cleared this issue and took car into Hyundai for service check (less than 2000 kms). Hyundai service said they couldn't find anything wrong.
Yesterday, the car locked the steering wheel but it couldn't be reset. Called RACQ roadside help. They did what they could but no luck. Car undrivable and was towed away. Will see what dealer does but in any case my wife and I don't feel safe driving a car which can lock the steering without notice. If we had been on a motorway at 100, we could be dead now. Terrible experience so far. Show details

  i30 PD Hatchback 1.6L Turbo Diesel CRDi Active

rock solid

Had mine about 5 yrs 95k haven't spent a cent on it other than servicing - not even the brakes.
The power/torque figures for this car are almost identical to an old 202 6 cylinder so to me it goes like a rocket except if caught with low revs before the turbo comes in. Sometimes your driving style will need to remember but it is rarely a problem for me. Show details

This is my dream car

My car is now 4 years old but still like new. I haven't had a single issue with it and Hyundai customer service is excellent. It has great fuel economy and really takes off, unlike my previous i30. I really love having the panoramic roof and the heated and cooled seats and use both quite often. The only other thing I wish it had is blind spot detector, but I can live without it and it has much more features than other cars in that price range. I will probably buy another i30 after this as I haven't found a car I prefer Show details

Car is okay to run but the promised map software upgrade never happened -- services department not doing the job

I bought a i30 elite 2019 2.0L and have been using it for 4 years now, the car is doing what it supposed to do, minor issue like the eco mode does not hold after restart.
The major thing I don't like Hyundai is the misleading about the Sat Nav upgrade plan, it clearly displayed on the "servicing" webpage, but within this 4 years of services, it has never been touched and done, even each time I requested it.
Shame! Show details

2019 hyundai i30 active pd2 hatchback.
Eco mode when I press the eco modto drive in it. It stays in but then the next time I start my car the eco mode light is turned off. I have to press the button. For it to come back on... is this normal does anyone's else's eco button turn off.
Should the eco button stay on while driving and if u turn car off should it come on.....

Mine is the same, I raised the issue to dealer and Hyundai head office according to the manual it should stay. But their answer is not helpful, like, "don't bother me" even I copy the page to show them.

Hi, I have the i30 elite sedan. Recently serviced, now I cannot get the digital speed reading to display. I can get the compass up, then scrolling down get everything bar the speed screen.

Give them a call. I've heard on the newer ones software updates can be problematic. They may have a quick fix. Sure you're not the only one. Good luck. John

The Toyota will be better, but if you only want it for 4 or so years, the Hyundai is fine, and it's much bigger inside and more comfortable. The Toyota may have better fuel economy though
