– Let’s go over the specific, most popular models. What technical troubles most often overtake the owners of budgetex Let’s go to Rio and Hyundai Solaris?
These cars are quite reliable. They have a simple and understandable design, and therefore those cars that regularly undergo maintenance, most often do not cause trouble to the owners at all.
In the first generation of this couple, one of the weak points was the silent blocks of the rear beam, which regularly required replacement. Another popular “sore” is the failure of the ignition coils. Problems with them occur most often in those who do not change spark plugs on time. With the natural wear of the candle, the distance between the electrodes increases, which ultimately leads to a breakdown of the coil. The recommendation for these engines is simple – change candles every 30,000 km or install iridium and drive 100,000 – 120,000 km.
– And what annoys the owners of the Kia K5 and Hyundai Sonata sedans?
– As for the Kia K5, we have not observed any problems so far – basically they turn to us for maintenance and suspension issues. With the “Sonata” of the latest generation, the situation is similar.
What about the Kia Seltos, Sportage and Hyundai Creta crossovers? The last question in this series, I promise.
– The Sportage has a weak point – the spline connection of the drive. But if you do regular preventive maintenance – cleaning and lubrication – then there will be no problems. And Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta – at the level of standard problems faced by those who do not follow the car. These are coils, catalysts. I would also note the parking sensors, but they periodically fail on all models. And more often this happens to those who live in cities with a damp climate and where salts and reagents are actively used in winter.
