2007 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

162-horsepower 2.4L I4 4-speed shiftable automatic FWD

25000 mi US $4220 With < 25K miles, rear left brake totally worn down with rotor damage. 4K miles previous had 7mm remaining. 
44000   And once again, the rear brakes needed to be refinished and pads replaced at a cost of $177.... so second replacement on back in 43000 miles. Front were replaced for first time but that would just be normal maintenance. 
2000   warped brake rotors were resurfaced. much better, but still not 100% 
27000 US $50 Rear brake pads had worn down to the metal. Rotor needed to be turned.  
90000   Replaced 4 rotors and brake pads. 
44000 US $400 The Brakes wore down. If they had put a brake sensor on the left side . They only put one on the right side, the left brake pad wore out first. I would have only needed new brakes and not rotors.

2006 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sedan

235-horsepower 3.3L V6 5-speed shiftable automatic FWD

51000 mi US $480 Brakes were making a grinding type noise when braking firmly. Brake pads (particularly rt. one) was worn to thickness of anickel. Brake pad chirper had broken off. New pads, rotors trued and turned. Transmission flushed. 
81000   Brake light switch problem. ESC and ABS lights kept coming on. Front brake pads and rotors were almost in need of repair again, so I had it done on this trip. Only got 30,000 miles out of this set 
24000   Right rear brake sometimes has a ticking noise and grabs sometimes under high humidity 
129300 US $325 Replaced front rotors and pads. 
33000 US $350 Front brake pads AND rotors need to be replaced. Fixed relatively heavy vibration under heavy braking. Unacceptable that also rotors wear out at 33000 miles. That's why one has soft pads... 
59000   Rear brakes and pads worn out at ~58k miles. Clearly Hyundai Sonata rotors are of low quality. Rear rotors last ~60k. Front rotors replaced at ~30k, and now going again at ~60k. 
59000   Front brake pads and rotors worn out. 
4000   pulsating brake pedal, ground down rotors 
22000   ABS and ESC light would come on.
