nothing but issues... heartbreaking

excellent van , good value
I have my Iload petrol 2.4 L from new. I use it for trade ,3-4 hundred kilo as standard load .Engine is bit under power but I used to it .Have serviced it with Hyundai first few services up to 30000 kms . I have not been happy at all with service . had third party mechanic for next few services up to 60 000 kms and after that I do all service by myself .never had any trouble with engine .I change oil every 10000 kms. At the moment I have on a clock 218000 kms and still going very well. I changed 3 front brake pads ,1 back brake pads and twice...front rotors.twice spark plugs ,all filters as regular when I do oil change. All other parts on engine still original . After riding many negative revives I consider myself very lucky or I do oil change as it should be . I was very disappointed with mechanic , fill oils a lot above limit and I think it is almost dangerous as short in oil . do not trust mechanic too much and start watching your car by yourself . good luck

Had the van for a few years now and it is very reliable
Had the van for a few years now and it is very reliable and haven’t had to any repairs or even spent anything on it . Very happy with car and would buy another
I bought a 2010 Iload used for light travel nothing stressful serviced regularly fuel injectors went and blew the motor apparently this is not as uncommon as you would expect it happens at around 150 000 for me 159 000 just out of warranty costs a bomb to fix i could have got i reliable nice hiace for the cost of it with the repairs. be cautious and awear when buying this vechical don't be fooled buy the looks.

Midweight delivery van with highway legs. Diesel/6 spd 2.5L turbo diesel manual. 3SL⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Had the van for a couple of months but spent the first month configuring it for work. Tint, tow bar, underlay, ply, carpet, tread plate, dvd player, fridge, pda cradles, chargers for ancilliary devices, printers etc.
Finally got there.
First thoughts. A bir scary on tight turns. Had a highly modified Mitsi 2.4L fuel injected express before this with Pedders suspension and nolathane on everything. Nearly rolled the Hyundai on the first turn! Realising it's a bit more top heavy and can't out corner 323's I settled into the groove and started driv...

Excellent Petrol Van
Bought this 2.4 manual petrol van new in September 2009 and still have to this day. I change oil and filter every 7,500km myself and get it serviced every 15,000Km. Has just done 205,000Km and still going strong. I have had no issues or problems but it is starting to show its age now being 11yrs old.

Had my iLoad for 10 years now and it has never put a foot wrong. It has been filled with salty seawater toys all that time and has towed a caravan across Europe covering thousands of miles on tough roads. In all that time I have done nothing to it apart from obvious things like brakes and new shocks. It is a brilliant vehicle for half the price of other vehicles like the VW. I would buy again in an instant except that I want a high top van and they have no such options. This would be my single complaint!

Peace of junk
had my 2012 petrol I load with 130,000 Km towed to my my mechanic because of funny noises , and the tow truck driver diagnosed the problem without even starting the motor, told me i loads are junk and i will need a new motor. Sad thing he was right, obviously its a common fault . The stitching in the seats came apart fixed on warranty, roof rack mounting strip broke, they would not cover by warranty, clutch went at 90,000Km (my Hiace has over 300,00 on origional clutch ) seat belts are frayed ,would not pass road worthy, passenger seat belt is...impossible to use . If you are a tradie look at the sliding door openings, the doors dont slide all the way back , and the safety cage covers 25% of the opening ( could not fit the draws from my old hiace in the I Load) Sliding door tracks have massive bulges that protrude into the van making shelving difficult to maximize ( I have lots of parts boxes ) Over all Disappointing would never buy another. If its price buy an LVD and take it to the tip after warranty, we are a disposable society
Hyundai iLoad Diesel problems
I am freaking out. I have read all of these reviews, mostly negative and costing a fortune for new motors etc-$13-17K! Even when the vans have been serviced as per the log book by Hyundai!! I believe there exists enough angst for a class action against Hyundai as many have said they had prior knowledge of their injector/turbo problems. you should all get together. OR stand out the front of the dealer where you bought it with a big sign telling your story. Print all of these stories to hand out. Call your local newspaper. I own a 2011 iLoad die...sel that I have babied along. I only use it for camping. It has done only 30k and after reading all of these horror stories I am thinking of selling it. I have had no problems yet but they wanted $250 to fix the map reading light above the rear vision mirror!
Purchased in May 2011 at Hyundai Dealers for $35,000.00.
I am just reading here about your guys turbo problems and engine sizes problems and oil changes every 5000km... and how bad is Hyundai... man did you ever drive Lexus or Toyota boring car? Call taxi and enjoy trip with with the squeak plastic and noise tyres... But let’s talking about turbo engines. Better get turbo diesel then turbo petrol why? Turbo petrol gets more heat on turbo propeller then turbo diesel because diesel is just cooler running engine that is why you have problem get the engine during the winter more difficult to the working ...temperature what is around 90C. The turbo any turbo never will seal oil properly because the are not rubber seals there are just metal o rings the shaft is a little bit loose in the bearings,why. Because the turbo have tu turn and run smoothly from minus 20 C up to 110C imagine in some countries is that cold in winter that large temperature is on one part as turbo. Every turbo has income oil tru 6-8mm! -pipe does it mean you can not put mineral oil in to turbo engine. Many of those pipes run next to the exhaust manifold what make them crazy hot and can be easily plug with any oil slug or will build slug in that oil pipe directly and less oil will come to the engine and the turbo will be sized. This is oil - turbo problem will call it heart attack. Now what happens if the turbo sized. The bearings will make bigger gap because there are just bronze bushes and not oil for couple of minutes the turbo spinning 30.000rpm and shaft getting more losse and the propeller hit the wall and the turbo stops but....... the propeller will brake on pieces and where the cast pieces go? Have gues ! Then when you stupid dumb Mechanik just take the old turbo out and replace it you don’t be surprised when after couple of km will sized the engine. Why? Because he/ you left the broken pieces right in front your intake valves and they can be stuck there for longer or they go right in tu the chamber. That is second miracle why “rubbish”Hyundai got sized engine. And now the main reason for all you guys. The first always leave the engine run when is cold for one minute. And always leave the engine run before you switch it off for minim one minute for all turbocharged engines! Why? Red hot propeller and gravity understand.? No? Ok you going on highway or in city say highway and now you see petrol station you take off from highway and stop on that pump turn engine off and go and have coffee or whatever but what is going on inside the engine? The propeller is red hot on petrol cars orange and after orange is only yellow colour before the cast gonna melt... Ok the propeller is red hot and stopped. The oil is starting to boil inside the 6mm oil pipe and starting building up more slug on the fences. The turbo actually the shaft in the turbo is bending by gravity force then you come back and start your engine again but the sound is different the propeller is very close tu the wall and is not in center anymore... hit the wall and you have to stop and think- damn this Hyundai broke down what a rubbish car... ha ha ok then...

great van but like most people
the van has been fantastic , serviced with synthetic oil every 15000kms for the last 3 months slight whistling from turbo and then it failed . ii have done about 170000kms with no problems i managed to get it home slowly as the turbo feels like it seized , will be fitting aftermarket turbo and will see how it goes fingers crossed. there was no sign the turbo was about to go apart from the whistling (which wasnt very loud ) oh yeah in the time i have owned it, one of the leaf springs cracked , i wouldn't have known apart from the sound it generated from sliding across and touching the body , the rest of the leafs were ok on that side.
Works well. Petrol model.
Bought new in June 2016. 2.4L Petrol manual. I've now got 22000 KLM's on it. So far it has been a great vehicle. I would have preferred the Auto Diesel but I couldn't justify the cost difference. The calculations showed that I would have broken even on fuel costs by the time the vehicle reaches 200K klm's but this did not include the extra servicing costs that would be incurred. If I buy another one, it will be the Auto Diesel mainly for the driving pleasure and to hell with the rational that I've adhered to all my 50 years of life.One can't t...ake the money with you after all! Goes well enough even towing a 8 x 5 trailer full loaded, even uphill. The gearing is rather quite tall which is great on the highway without a trailer on but with the trailer and a stiff headwind 4th sometimes is better. It will tow at 100K cruising just. It will however perform if you give it plenty of rev's but the fuel consumption will also rise steeply. Getting about 600 K per 70 L tank, without trailer, mainly on the highway. I love the spaciousness of the vehicle especially the cab. After a Mitsubishi Express, where half my shoulder was out the window in order to fit in, the cab on the Hyundai is comfortably wide enough to close the window and run the great A/C system with elbow room to move. Transmission is great with a silky smooth shift. The rear suspension is rather stiff unladen however this van does carry a ton very well.Even 200 kg in the back and it's much better. The revised key fob works a treat overcoming the issues people had before. Rear reversing camera is very much appreciated and a great safety feature. The large tyres and wide stance also give this vehicle great stability. The brakes are powerful enough even fully loaded with a unbraked trailer. The sound system is not very loud and I think the volume diminishes as you crank it up over time possibly due to the amplifier inside protecting itself. I fitted a separate aftermarket stand alone amplifier and some new speakers in the door and it improved it out of sight. The fuel flap release button on a couple of occasions failed to work but there is a emergency release handle in the back which opened it. Perhaps it just needs some grease or there is a loose connection. Anyone with any experience with this and the fix for it please contact me.The seating, power steering, electric windows, electric mirrors,great a/c, airbags, 4 star safety rating, quietness, media system, improved fuel economy compared to Mits Express all combine to make this a great van. I'd also like to give a shout out to Barton's Hyundai Brisbane ,Phill in particular, for their great friendly non pushy service. Not like the stereo typical car salesman, very refreshing indeed. He even picked me up from Brisbane Airport, the car had a full tank of fuel, and genuine floor mats were thrown in for what was a good no trade price and certainly much cheaper, even after airfares and fuel costs, than what my local dealer could do the deal for in Townsville where they have no competition and do resort to using sales "tactics". Update on fuel door not opening sometimes. The wires that supply power to the actuator are too small. This device use 12 amps directly connected to the battery but only draws 8 amps at the harness. I had a large power wire there already for my amplifier and extra power sockets for camping so I connected a relay to drive the actuator. It now opens very strongly and the intermittent issues should be solved.
Good Van with some problums
I have had this van since 2013 and have 200,000km on it just done the injectors and turbo that cost me $6,000 to fix but considering this van has not had any of the services done on time this is pretty good. biggest fault i have had is the tyres keep scrubbing out and some suspension problems nether one Hyundai would admit to and fix, had found the front wheal Bearing was not fitted properly in the factory (not found by Hyundai even though they had checked the wheal bearing).
If Hyundai would look at complaints properly some bad feelings would...
So far so good
Hi great van that drives quite and smooth
My van is diseal auto with 60ks
Always survived with Hyundai and
With no problems nock on wood
I do a of mix of city and country driving
The only thing I would like is curse control but
You really don’t need it as triffic always seems
To make you hit the bracks ...
It just does everything it is supposed to and then some
Purchased new in 2011, This vehicle has been just remarkable. 135000k. Serviced regularly. Diesel manual, mainly city driving, all mechanical bits still original. Have had cruise control fitted, done trips Brisbane Adelaide, Brisbane Griffith, Brisbane Sydney. Excellent fuel economy and comfortable. When purchased the dealer stressed to have it service on time an that it would not be a bad idea to change the oil & oil filter between scheduled service. Done that. Now lining up for my 2nd one.
Questions & Answers
Can you adapt another kind of motor to fit a 2010 Hyundai iload 2.4 diesel
Can any other motor be adapted to fit 2010 iload .
One motor blew under warranty. Next motor blew just out of warranty
Looking at possibly getting a new turbo put into my 09 iload, it has clocked 287,000km on the board and hasn't missed a beat, I get it serviced every 10,000kms and it does lack power but still runs well, I'd like to get more time out of it but I'm not sure if I should go ahead with it and I was wondering what a fair price would be for the part, cheers!
