As with any motor vehicle there are always some common faults. Every car has an Achilles heal so to speak. For the I30 it is the knocking noise that begins in the steering and gradually gets worse over time.
The fault lies with a part inside the steering column. Whats super disappointing about this is not the fault itself but reports of how many Hyundai dealers are going about the repair.
Hyundai I30 Expert Sydney Many dealers are quoting the replacement of the complete steering column which includes the electric motor for the steering, naturally this is a mega expensive part with quote to replace it exceeding two and a half thousand dollars. This is outright highway robber with the faulty part being a small plastic gear that retails for under thirty dollars. Add a few hours labour and the whole job should only cost you around the five hundred dollar mark.
No one was watching or cared whilst the vehicle was under warranty as the dealer was getting paid by Hyundai but now these vehicles are coming out of warranty people should be careful of forking out thousands of dollars for a steering column because 98 percent of the time they do not need it.
