Hyundai Atos cars are known for their small, compact size as well as their fuel efficiency and this makes them the ideal car for city living. While problems with these models are not too frequent due to the fact that the Atos is a fairly new model, occasional faults have been reported from time to time. To ensure that your Atos is in good condition, and that it runs as well as it possibly can, make sure that you stick to your service schedule so that you can diagnose and repair any faults that may arise, before they become huge (and expensive) problems. Some of the most commonly reported Atos faults could include the following:

Hyundai Atos Gear Problems

Some Atos owners have experienced gear issues, such as difficulty in placing the car into reverse. Stiff gears or other concerns could be a simple issue to fix, or in rare cases, the gearbox may need to be replaced. If you are in any doubt as to what is causing problems with your gears, then make sure that you speak to your auto repair shop specialists to get a full diagnosis.

Hyundai Atos Starter Problems

Another reported problem with the Hyundai Atos is transmission or ignition problems. This issue is easy to diagnose, as the car simply does not start when the ignition is turned. Or the car could start, but it may take some time for the ignition to turn. Whatever the case, a qualified and highly experience auto repair centre such as autoWORKS will be able to advise on what the problem may be, and how it can be fixed.

Hyundai Atos Steering Problems

The Hyundai Atos has power steering that is generally free of problems; however electrical faults could cause steering to be effected. If your steering locks or you begin to notice any issues with the steering it could be the wheel itself, or even wheel alignment or similar problems that affect steering. You should never ignore problems with steering in your Atos, even if it may not seem like a big issue – on South Africa’s somewhat dangerous roads, you need to be in full control and poor steering could cause an accident. Have the technicians check this during your Hyundai service to repair this issue as soon as you can.
