Very im­pres­sive Sur­vival Guide on the Hyundai Coupé in the May 2018 is­sue. A cou­ple of corrections: 1) It’s the bot­tom end that gives is­sues on V6 en­gines, not the top. This prob­lem has be­come re­ferred to as the ‘knock of death’ and, at one time, around five cars per week were be­ing scrapped be­cause of it. 2) I would rec­om­mend us­ing 10W40 oil in all mod­els and not 5W30 as rec­om­mended by Hyundai. These mod­els all drink a lit­tle bit of oil. 3) I was a lit­tle miffed that the Hyundai Coupé Own­ers Club didn’t get a men­tion as be­ing the only of­fi­cial own­ers club in the UK. The Hyundai Coupé Club is a dead site, whereas HCOC is thriv­ing on Face­book and is the only club recog­nised by Hyundai.
