Sonata 4-cyl

  • miles
7-09 rear brake pads frozen to carriers: Cleaned and replaced pads at 11, 488 miles. 10-09 rear right wheel not spinning freely: Clean and adjust rear brake assembly at 14,978 miles. 3-11 back brake rotors and pads needed to be replaced at 30,625 miles. There is something wrong with either the design of the brake system or the materials that are used for the brake assembly. I've driven cars in the new england area for 28 years having lived in the same area all 28 years, and haven't had this much trouble with the cars I've had.
