Is the 2008 Hyundai i30 good?

Is the 2008 Hyundai i30 good?

Is Hyundai i30 2.0L Diesel 2008 133.000 miles and 1 owner is it a good car to buy and are they reliable


Hi Alan,

In general, Hyundais are very reliable. However, any car that is now over 12 years old is unlikely to be perfect, I'm afraid. That particular i30 is known to have a few niggles to watch out for, such as power steering, wiper and air conditioning issues. More expensively, the gearbox can also give problems and the steering and suspension can start making strange noises over rough roads. A single-owner car with that low mileage should be quite a good bet if the price is low, but take it for a good drive and inspect every aspect of it. And don't expect perfection.
