Small businesses can not afford these problems

Iload diesel van, blew turbo & engine only to be told $13500 to fix it, always serviced, well kept and 200 k on the clock nothing for a diesel! Was told by numerous people these blow up all the time! Won't buy another diesel again, who can afford that? No small business can absorb this outrageous repair price.

Best van I've ever owned!

Hands down the best van Ive ever owned! The iLoad is so comfortable to drive, unlike cramped vans such as the Hiace. It is as close to a car as you will find and it handles long road trips - Brisbane to Melbourne with effortless ease. The barn door are an awesome option.

This car has left a bad taste in my mouth

Blown turbo at 126000, could not believe it, devastated, crap car now good car at the start. Going to cost $7000 to repair and motor to follow very soon been told. Thought i had a good car but no, absolute rubbish. Really upset, i have learned that i keep the car for warranty then it goes. Can not afford the risk next time with no warranty.

Bought new. Been mistreated. Still running

Best work vehicle by far. Used to run hiluxes with nothing but problems. Bought diesel manual and have done 250000 since new with regular services. More than enough power to tow tandem work trailer while being fully laden. Wouldn't buy a ute again. Maybe just flukes a good one but I'd consider having rebuilt and getting another 100000

Avoid series 1 Hyundai Iload Diesel

The series 1 iload and IMAX with Diesel engine 2008 to 2012.

Two blown turbos and a blown engine after 200k. Expect better from a Diesel engine.

Hyundai is a throw away vehicle after 5 years plus.

Korean cars stay away.

Hyundai corrected the problem with their series 2 engines from 2013 onwards.

Great van! Shame about not having cruise control

Good Van, reliable, good on diesel, plenty of power, shame they don't have cruise control, and the self locking doors need turning off at the dealership cos they are very annoying, apart from that it's really good tradesman van. Had a Mercedes Vito before this and had nothing but trouble with it and spares were so expensive it was a joke! Your've been warned! Go the Iload any day of the week!!!!

Best work van Ive owned

130,000 k's strong as the day i got it, Diesel auto never missed a beat, but it has always been serviced on time every time, drives like a V6 car,hauls weight like it doesn't know its there and is comfortable to drive with great bucket seating. Out of the Millions sold I suppose some have to have problems but you rarely hear from people who don't have problems.

Decent van - worth a chance

Purchased a dealership used Hyundai iLoad in manual with under 30,000km. I was set on getting another Hiace but decided to give the iLoad a chance. It has enough power, good access with the rear double doors and has no major problems so far. Few minor issues which the dealer sorted out with warranty.

very disappointed in this vehicle. it should be good, but its not

40000 ks and problems are stacking up already. Firstly the air con went during the first summer, not good, and it took me 3trips to the dealer to rectify, front passenger seatbelt faulty, clunky drivetrain noises, and at 40000 ks,timing chain problems,and in the workshop for a week to be fixed. I was starting to get to like it, but now in getting rid of it. Quality build is not a word i would associate with this car. Then the doors became difficult to open, then hard to get into first gear. Sorry Hyundai, but for the price, there are much better vans around, that are much less trouble.

Worst vehicle

This vehicle is 1 year 8 months and it is already parked at the dealership waiting word from Korea

it was taken in for some noise from the engine and checked why it was loosing power especially with the air condition on. A diagnostic test was conducted then the test reveal that the vehicle need to do a full service . This was done by the dealer .After that was done the vehicle fail to perform and is saying now they believe the transmission have a problem . It has been 2 weeks the vehicle is parked waiting on a response from Hyundai in Korea. Imagine I leave in the Caribbean very mountainous with 5 passengers on with air condition. Can you guys imagine what I am going through.

Excellent, van, manual turbo diesel - fingers crossed it stays that way

This is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. Purchased it with 5000 km on the clock and it has run like a dream. Drives like a car, pull's like a truck. We have used it for both short and long distance driving and even fully loaded it was amazing how much power it's got. And... it's incredibly economical.

I have driven the Toyota and Mitsubishi vans many times as well and the iLoads leave them for dead as far as I am concened.

Like any vehicle they need to be serviced and looked after if you want longevity. My vehicle is 8 years old and still going strong.

Lost my business due to my Hyundai Van blowing up after 320000kms

3 years old, 320000kms, big end bearing gone in engine. Bought this vehicle to last at least 10-15 years. Paid $45,000.00 for 3 years of use.

Devastated and disgusted that vehicles are not made to last anymore. Happy to tell people the truth about your vehicles. Do not buy.

Rubbish Cars

Had the turbo go on a 2010 model, after that the engine needed replacing. Absolute rubbish. Wouldn't recommend one not even to my worst enemy. I owned it for around a year and had just under 160k kms. It was a one owner with full service history. Yeh they look good on paper but handle like a wet noodle.

3 Blown Turbos and a New Engine

I have Blown 2 Turbos and now a third turbo after changing the engine 5k ago. Has any one got any advice on why this is so?

The Van ran perfectly until the first turbo blew. It does lag at times normally when trying to cross and intersection.

Has anyone got any ideas on why the turbo would blow again on a reco engine after 5ks?

Great van

Had my Manual Petrol iLoad since 2008, has been very reliable ....one small problem the back door lifting struts gave out....Do not buy spare parts from Hyundai they are a rip off ...any one else with the same problem buy them from the Gas Strut Guys....would recomend the van to anyone ...110,000 km off the first set of tyres.

Woeful. Wouldn't pay to drive one. Company car

Company vehicle doesn't come near Hiace.

Looses power intermittently (turbo dies) dodgey brake switch activating acceleration cancelling software, from what I've gleaned.

Unlocks itself overnight with no key activation. ( I have locked it and hung key up making sure it is not touched)

Halo system is a PITA. Had that turned off.

Load space sucks with rounded walls.

Side doors stick shut on hot days.

Headlight globes blow every three months.

2011 Hyundai Ioad from new

This has been a very reliable work van. One new battery at three years and just had a new clutch fitted at 56k. The engine could use few more horses when the aircon is on it really struggles to get up some of Sydney's steeper streets. I once had to roll back down a hill to the bottom and take a run up( no joke). I always found the hand brake less than adequate when parked on hills but when I had the clutch changed recently this was fixed buy a independent motor mechanic. Hyundai never picked this up when it was serviced and I thought it was just a bad design. I think in all honesty that the biggest disappointment for me has been the dealerships service departments. They charge a lot and do very little.

Poor Performance

Purchased my 2015 diesel iLoad brand new. Serviced as per book. Took into dealer for 30,000k service and the broke the cam shaft. YES you read right, they broke the cam shaft. They left the oil filling gun in the oil filler and started the engine. They replaced cam but then the engine lacked power, rattled and blew smoke. They damaged the body when they put bullbar back on van, they stuffed the wiring for driving lights and forgot to check bullbar was on square.

They then told me the EGR Valve was the issue (at 30,000k mind you). They changed this but it has made no difference. So much for customer service.

Well credentialed Van

Great van, easy to drive, easy to park and comfortable. Have used the van as an electrician. It is able to tow well, store everything I need easily. I am obtaining over 10km perlitre. I am a patient driver and also use cruies control where possible. However the van is always fully loaded.
