    My car

    Very dissapionted with the vehicle, Did not get a good deal. On driving home on the very first day there was a problem, misfire/judder through the whole chassis at about 1500-2000 revs, took the car back diagnostics revealed nothing. The car has been back three times for them to change various parts,on the third time they had it for two weeks with senior tecs to look at it. I had enough of it told them what to do with the car, still waiting to get a refund, so much hassle when on finance. Sloppy dealer attitude. Will not be buing from them again.

    My car

    If your thinking of buying this car, DO!!!! its just such a good car. I have had it for 3000 trouble-free and cheap miles. It does exactly what it says on the tin. It is comfortable, economical, spacious and practical. It averages 48-50 mpg at a fair lick on the motorway. I cant vouch for the service yet, but I can vouch for the sales team who cut me a fantastic deal when I purchased it. I went for the premium and was amazed to find that the "optional extras" list is so short, metallic paint to be precise, the car has everything else as standard. In conclusion, this is car is value for money personified, without the need to scrip on quality, well done Hyundai for providing such a great car.

    My car

    Thinking of buying an i30? - Don't! Not until you are sure the service department have been trained and assessed in the new features that are installed.

    Within two weeks of buying my car I had to take it back as the tyre pressure warning light repeatedly came on. The 'service' dept said 1) it was a faulty sensor 2) the tyres were fine and 3) that the car was safe to drive.

    Normally 2 out of 3 wouldn't be too bad but I ended up driving an unsafe vehicle.

    It seems the service department were unaware that the sensor would release pressure if it read that the tyres were over inflated.

    Hyundai are of the opinion that their franchises are suitably trained - that opinion is certainly questionable.

    Still waiting to have a formal response - great customer service!

    My car

    We have just placed an order for the 1.6CRDi Premium after an extended 3 day test drive. The car was superb in every aspect and in our view was much much better than the focus, golf, astra, megane, 308 etc.

    If you can get past the badge snobbery this is one of the best cars around. Whilst this is our 'City car' and we have an Audi Q7 as the 'motorway car', the quality of materials is not too dissimilar.
