Interesting comment about hyundai , especially as I thought it's all the same undeneath as a kia. Our getz has had normal servicing except the accelerator pedal which smacked at £350!

Hyundai are the parent company..and they share much the same..but can be different even between sisters cars like the ix20 and the venga..they had a chance to do a Mk3 of both cars bring the two of them closer with the best items from both but sadly they have now discontinued both models..to give you one example ix20 has a coolant temp gauge on the dash..Venga does not..dont ask me why it wasnt included on the venga..stupid if you ask me..Headlamps on the venga can be totally removed by just unbolting a couple of bolts under the bonnet..ix20 you have to remove the whole front bumper to get them off..

we're going ahead with the cambelt change!....damn....her choice though. might as well get the EGR valve looked at too as she only does short drives. must be getting clogged. and we'll MOT it whilst it's dry so the ABS light doesn't flash like a christmas tree.

Well I think that's it. Sent er indoors a link to what looked like a good car and she shrugged her shoulders.
So plan A it is, cambelt etc.
I can sort of see her point about not wanting a newer car.

I've probably shown her every different colour over the past year. Let's hope she doesn't comment when the bills start arriving for parts and labour. Obviously I won't say "told you so "
