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 mi

US $350
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 mi warped brake rotors were resurfaced. much better, but still not 100% 
27000 mi

US $50
Rear brake pads had worn down to the metal. Rotor needed to be turned.  
90000 mi

US $300
Replaced 4 rotors and brake pads. 
44000 mi

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 mi

US $500
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 mi Right rear brake sometimes has a ticking noise and grabs sometimes under high humidity 
129300 mi

US $325
Replaced front rotors and pads. 
33000 mi

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 mi

US $400
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 mi

US $450
Front brake pads and rotors worn out. 
4000 mi pulsating brake pedal, ground down rotors 
22000 mi ABS and ESC light would come on.
