Hyundai i30 Common Problems and Solutions
The windscreen on the i30 is prone to a higher than usual condensation build up. This problem is caused by a failure of the windscreen seals, which allow water into the cabin. With this problem, you may also notice that there are damp patches on the carpets or elsewhere in the front of the car.
You will need to replace the windscreen seals to sort the problem. If your car is still under warranty, Hyundai will fix the problem free of charge. Otherwise it is your responsibility.
Hand brake failure
If you have been finding that the handbrake is not holding the weight of the car, particularly on a hill, then the handbrake needs reset at a dealers. When you apply the handbrake on a hill and if it rolls back slightly, you need to get this seen to asap.
As mentioned above, you need to have the handbrake reset at a Hyundai dealer. This should be covered under warranty.
