  1. Not good

    Quick update. 4,000 miles later and the car continues to return mid 50s mpg. After filling up and a 40 mile run through mostly average speed camera roadworks on the M1 it was actually showing 60.5 for a bit!! the whistle and stuttering remains. To be honest, I haven't actually had time to take it in and show them as I can't afford to be away from work yet again (they've had the car nearly 6 weeks so far this year) I've finally got them to admit they made a mistake on one of the minor items on my list of grievances, but so far not on the main engine failure.
  2. Excessive front tyre wear

    As Gaz said, cracking means old rubber. Outside wear only, that shouts tracking
  3. Not good

    November 18 2017 hence me wanting to get this resolved but they are belong bloody awkward
  4. Not good

    Still to-ing and fro-ing. It appears resolved and it's definitely a DPF issue and Hyundai know about it, I'm sure. I want them to tell me what triggered them going to Hyundai technical this time when the symptoms were no different to the other 4 times they saw it ( so I can let you guys know) but they won't say. My feeling is it was the oil analysis, sent by the Lab to Hyundai I want them to admit they f**ked up big time, but they obviously won't. They basically keep saying that's what the warranty is there for...
  5. Hyundai I40 Diesel in Engine Oil

    As Gaz has pointed out. Check out my thread. My efforts with the dealer are ongoing, but I think the issue is resolved. It's a DPF issue. They need to engage Hyundai Technical who will talk them through some diagnostic tests. No error codes at any point and the DPF reports it's regenerating fine, but isn't. Get it sorted asap and drive it as little as possible. I've had a whole new engine because of this, luckily under warranty...
  6. i40 2nd hand...

    As a sufferer of this issue, my current arguing point, is that it went back to Hyundai at least 3 times with the same symptoms and, even after a catastrophic engine failure it was returned with the same fault. Now, it may be a dealer issue that is wasn't identified sooner, but their argument of 'it didn't show any error codes' is wearing a bit thin with me now... Hell, it didn't show any error codes when the vacuum pump failed and got mangled in the timing chain and had pistons hitting valves!!! It may also be an isolated or age related issue - mine has now done over 145k miles, but I believe there is a serious design flaw in here somewhere... I've had similar diesels from BMW and Vauxhall (and my Vivaro van, a Renault by all accounts) and haven't had this issue and have all covered similar, or more, miles. I'd be wary, but it's a good, well specced, cheaper alternative, IF it all stays good...
  7. i40 front parking sensor issue

    I would say that it's a sensor problem - just because they've been replaced, doesn't mean they haven't failed again - I've had at least 10 replacements in 3.5 years...
  8. From memory, when the display show your Range to Empty, press and hold the Display button on the steering wheel until it changes (about 10 seconds)...
  9. Not good

    Still in discussion. This is their written response about the failure Bearing in mind they told me they didn't strip it and it was going to Hyundai for investigation!! They also haven't said if they know why the vacuum pump failed! It's going a bit like that at the moment - it's like getting blood out of a stone. Everything they say just brings up more questions. Also, they've told me both, that I have and have not had a new turbo! they've also diagnosed turbo wear which, if the replacement is true, would be 1,500 miles old!! I'll keep plugging away...
  10. Not good

    Have received the fob off from the dealer wont post much more until it's resolved. can see trading standards and motoring press getting involved...
  11. Not good

    Yes. 136 you can see why I got a bit pi$$ed when it dropped to below 40
  12. Not good

    At least the engine seems ok now, based on mpg. Last tank...
  13. Rear parking sensor

    That's expensive. When mine break after the warranty has run out they'll stop broken!! I wonder if there is a case to argue inherently bad design means they should replace for life?
  14. Tyre pressure

    For my 16" wheels it's even lower at 33psi!!! when I run at that pressure, i.e. When they correct it at a service, I get inside and outside shoulder wear, indicating under inflation. I usually run at about 38-39psi which seems to promote even wear and counteract some of the shocking (pun intended) rear suspension softness...
  15. Not good

    Thanks both. I won't worry about the colour then. Regarding the Max fill. I guess, like Gaz says, if there's still some in the oil cooler and then hey just dump the specified amount in then it will always be over max. Infuriating though as, to me, it means more volume, increased resistance due to extra volume and increased oil pressure. As an 'uneducated' owner this is the same symptom as before, so I might just play devils advocate with them... if they ever get around to contacting me...
