Since my last review I have had no problems, and car is going well
On a recent 400 mile round trip, I did one stretch of around 100 miles averaging 60MPH, and I got 69 to the gallon, even with the air-con on. That was impressive.
Car is comfortable on long trips, so well done Hyundai
A great car to own. It is very quiet at motorway speeds and economical. It can be a bit bouncy in town with the stiff suspension. I had the suspension looked at twice since I bought the car in Novenber last year due to knocking from one wheel. A known fault with this model. The car is only a year and half old. Would I reconmend the car? A good alternative to a BMW, without the snob value, but better value and equipement.
12 months & just 8000 miles, car need new wiper arm as wiper smears(blade i fine)new steering column(creaks)and washer pump(operate rear wash & front also operates). Service & insurance costs are very high, fuel economy is good though, dealer service is shocking, glad the car has 5 year warranty. Its a cheap car, but cheap for a reason.
I bought this car as a year old demonstrator with less than 3000 miles at under £11000 (I would never buy new again!) and am really impressed. Having owned two Hyundai Getz and covering 80000 miles in four years, I knew about Hyundai reliability but we wanted a bigger, more comfortable car mainly for commuting. It is comfortable, quiet, well built and has more than adequate real world performance. The surprise was its economy though. I registered an overall 46 mpg with my diesel Getz but am obtaining a continuous 50 mpg with the i30 on mixed urban and main road driving. This went up to 54 mpg on a trip to Wales. I think this is because of the greater flexibility of this engine. Hyundai certainly know how to get you hooked as a customer, as I have found that, for my motoring needs, I could not afford to look elswhere. They had better watch their service though as two months after purchase at a non local dealer, despite loads of calls and promises, we still haven't received the missing locking wheel nut spanner and spare key, making every journey a worry. (perhaps one disadvantage of not buying new!)

My late 2010 1.6 CRDI has covered 43,000 miles in just over 18 months. The good. So far the car seems totally reliable. The interior still looks…
I just traded in my beloved 56 plate ST2 and I regret it. All I can say is buy one, the car is fantastic with the best thing being the noise the…
