Ve­hi­cle ques­tions

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Help! -

I have just pur­chased a 64-plate Hyundai i20 1.2. Could you tell me your opinion of this model in gen­eral? Are they any known prob­lems with this ve­hi­cle? I would also like to know if the ve­hi­cle has a dual mass fly­wheel and whether or not it is fit­ted with hy­draulic tap­pets? Also, is it pos­si­ble to get a work­shop man­ual for the i20? Philip Os­borne Hav­ing just rec­om­mended this very ve­hi­cle to a fam­ily friend, I can con­firm that my opinion of the Korean su­per­mini is quite high. It of­fers a high com­fort level with equally good fuel econ­omy and re­li­a­bil­ity.

From the de­tails I have, your ve­hi­cle is not fit­ted with a dual mass fly­wheel and the valve mech­a­nism has hy­draulic lash ad­justers. Like all new ve­hi­cles, the work­shop data is only avail­able as an elec­tronic cat­a­logue, al­though I can’t find a man­ual that cov­ers the 2014 ver­sion. How­ever, as the Hyundai comes with a five-year war­ranty, you have a few years of worry-free mo­tor­ing ahead, so by the time you need a re­pair man­ual it may pos­si­bly be avail­able.
