Here's an example fault on the HYUNDAI i30 (2007 - Present)

What to look for:

Look for blue/black smoke from the exhaust when the engine is warm. During the test drive, note if there is any loss of power or a whistling sound from the engine under power. Open the bonnet when the engine is running and listen for a whistling or ‘graunching’ sound from the top of the engine.

What it means:

These symptoms indicate that the turbo is blown. Make sure the EGR (Exhaust Gas Re-circulation) valve is replaced at the same time as the turbo.

What to do

It will be fixed under warranty if the car is less than seven years old. Otherwise negotiate £800 off of the asking price or have the repair carried out as part of the deal.
