1526 TrueDelta members own (or used to own) a 2000 or newer Hyundai Sonata. 130 of these members
(8.5%) have reported brake repairs for their car.
A total of 171 brake repairs to Hyundai Sonatas--an average of 0.1 per
vehicle--have been reported.
With < 25K miles, rear left brake totally worn down with rotor damage. 4K miles previous had 7mm remaining.
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.
warped brake rotors were resurfaced. much better, but still not 100%
Rear brake pads had worn down to the metal. Rotor needed to be turned.
Replaced 4 rotors and brake pads.
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.
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.
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
Right rear brake sometimes has a ticking noise and grabs sometimes under high humidity
Replaced front rotors and pads.
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...
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.
