  1. Not good

    I’m no mechanic for sure , good luck mate.
  2. Not good

    Don’t think the DPF has to be clogged but possibly faulty in some way . Its telling the system to regenerate when there’s no need???
  3. Not good

    Replaced DPF. Mpg jump from 30 to over 40mpg
  4. Reset/View service schedule on dash

    There’s no show on the dash, not on my 13 plate there weren’t anyway. The new i40 is now every 10k , One reason why I now own the ioniq
  5. Coolant Loss

    Lol, I had both.
  6. Coolant Loss

    Had the same issue, replaced under warranty.
  7. Temperature gauge

    Tax is a surprising £130 considering it’s a hybrid. Currently getting 67.5 mpg ,mainly town with 10% motorway saving me at least £50 a week. That’s a saving that equals 50% of the finance payments. Just done my 1st pair of fronts at 25k. Got it with 2000 on the clock , over 5yr term, no deposit at 390 pm. services are every 10k the same as a new i40 strangely enough. Heated and ventilated front seats , heated rear seats and headed steering wheel I couldent now do without. must say that after 12/13 hours a day the i40 was more comfortable. well happy with it . It beats the Toyotas hands down for me.
  8. Temperature gauge

    Spam kind of keeps you off for some reason mate, but Iv had my ioniq now for 6 month with no issues.
  9. Temperature gauge

    That was normal for mine
  10. ATF SP-111 labelled as hyundai genuine parts. wont let me put picture up as exceeding limit
  11. Still got a litre in my lock up down the rd, will have a butchers when I get a mo
  12. Tbh honest I suppose you don’t know. Although I always try and have a little chat with the technician. I did though ask beforehand after asking for the quote actually ask how much I’m paying for the fluid. i seemed to save around £30 by purchasing this at another main dealer. if I remember correctly I was advised to buy 8 litres although after the work was carried out they handed a one litre bottle back.
  13. 60.000 mate. My advise is to get the main dealer to do it, it needs to be done correctly. Its not just a matter of dropping and topping up but you’ll be surprised how many mechanics will do just that. A colleague of mine done just that and it lasted around 2000 miles. Basically wrote the car off. Main dealer costs for a new box is around £9000, yes 9k. They’ll charge around £200.
  14. Oil overfill problem

    On a Service they do tend to fill to max so hopefully it’ll be fine.
  15. Coolant conundrum

    You know your getting old when, you can’t remember the colour of the coolant you put in your car only 3 months ago. id have a butchers if only the tea leafs had not chord my car. The point is though, it don’t matter what colour it is as you can safely mix with any other colour.
