Hello to all , and hope you are all well . I am on the verge of buying a 52 plate carens , but have see a few revews saying poor motors . Do they need lots of maintenance and regular parts ect . I thought i would ask the folk that count and know best . Im not behind the door when it comes to working on mecanics , but some things are out of touch on modern cars ( god bless the makers lol
)

I know its got a few probs already . second gear wont engage coming back down the box ( but i've drove it and can live with it . And theres a mad clicking noise when you unlock car on key fob ( exspect relay or wiring to it ) sound from back door . Any how any comments off all you lovely people would be greatly took on board .

Thanks steve

Hi geosteve
where do you want me to start??
Had my crdi for approx 3 and a half years now so far i have replaced
<ul>[*]Both front bottom wish bones and bushes[*]Both front anti roll bar drag links[*]6 front tyres steering geometery un-adjustable manufacturer problem when car assembled[*]2 sets rear pads caliper slide mechanism jammed (useless handbrake at best)[*]All door handles have snapped and diy fixed now[*]Windscreen washer duel pump[*]Near side rear anti roll bar drag link[/list]Gear box now removed for synchro/slider replacement at local indipendant specialist 4th and 3rd jammed, Removed myself to save dosh est 300 quid
Poor paint work rust is evident under paint work, the door lock senders on my carens will lock and unlock as it makes its way around the roads perhaps a left turn and they will start to engage and disengage for several seconds then stop, If they really annoy the only way to stop them is to hold the internal lock button down and hold as it fights you,
All this and only 56,000 on the clock
Buy the way full service history every 10,000 miles, 1 previous owner.
Best part the Engine good strong diesel motor but thats hyundai

The key to turn the f**ker off
