Hyundai Elantra Brake Problems

  • My front brakes still have 6mm left on both right and left side. I had those replaced 25,000 miles ago.

    They replaced the rear left and right pads, and resurfaced the rotors to 18.1mm. I did request the old parts back. They gave me the brake pads which when my Dad looked at them he said it looks like they are wearing at an angle. Not sure if that is normal for a Hyundai. The box from the new brakes shows they are using Hyundai brake pads. They were very very dirty though. Couldn't even touch one without our hands being covered in black dust.

    I only use my parking brake when I park, and have not even once forgotten to take it off before driving away.

    My Dad asked them what the runout on the rotors was and they told us that they will not check the runout on the rotor unless there is complaint of pulsating. My Dad said that is crap because I brought it in for a 4th time due to the pads wearing out too soon, which is a problem, and therefore they should have checked the rotor to make sure it isn't warped. They told him that they have never done that and no one would have done that under these circumstances.

    I have sent an email to the Hyundai Corporation and to department of highway safety and transportation, and the bureau of automotive repair to see if they can tell me what to do next. There is no way I can see having to pay $300 every year to replace rear pads. We also asked what the ratio is for my car for wear on front brakes compared to rear brakes and they said the front ones will last maybe twice as long as the rear ones.
  • I have a 2010 Elantra brought brand new off lot.. I have had the car for only 1 1/2 years and have 22 k on it.. My car started shaking when I hit the breaks and sometimes when it is wet outside when I back up I hear my breaks in the back. I brought it to the dealer today thinking it was under warrenty since it was brought new and does not even have 30k on it yet. It passed inspection in May, did not need breaks then and BREAK SENSOR LIGHTS ARE NOT EVEN ON in car,and it is Nov.. Service dept advised me that not only do I need all 4 breaks but all 4 ROTORS ARE WARPED and will cost me $1100 to fix. I looked at them and said do you think I am stupid, no way do all FOUR ROTORS GET WARPED AT THE SAME TIME!! Its a defect in the rotors, this is rediculous... I told them to give me my car.. I then went to dealer who gave no help as well.... Does anyone have these problems in a car that is not even off the lot 2 years..

  • I purchased my 2007 Elantra new. This is my track record for brakes. Find it hard to believe I am replacing brakes this often. When I took them in to the dealer last week, I was told brakes need servicing once a year for lube, etc our climate of rain, snow and salt. However, I am replacing these yearly. I hear some "resistance" like rust when I apply the brakes, especially after rain for the first couple applications. Has anyone else had these problem or any suggestions.

  • Hi, I've had 4 registered complaints with the brakes on my 2013 Hyundai Elantra. Could you please tell me about lemon law. This car is extremely dangerous and I dont want to drive it anymore.
