Brakes: Signs & Symptoms of Failure

Servicing your brakes is a necessary part of your Hyundai maintenance. But for many car owners, maintaining a vehicle’s brakes is often overlooked. Keeping your brakes in good working order can also help prevent costly repairs down the road. Below are frequently asked questions about brake repairs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Brake Repairs & Replacements

How do you know when you need new brake pads?

The usual signs of failing brake pads include low brake fluid (warning lights) and the inability to stop abruptly. Additionally, you may notice the brake pedal feels soft/spongy, the vehicle is pulling to the side, or the car vibrates or is generally hard to control when braking. These are all symptoms of bad brake pads, brake shoes or related components.

How do you know when you need new brake rotors?

The most common sign of bad rotors: grinding; metal-on-metal sounds when you press the brakes. This is usually because your brake pads have worn down entirely, resulting in the rotors and brake pads making metal to metal contact. Once you hear the grinding sound, a complete brake job is usually the only solution.

If your brakes are acting weird, they’re shuddering, your brake warning light is on or they’re just not working right, it’s best to call us at 847-230-8221 or schedule an appointment for an inspection.

How often should I replace the brakes on my Hyundai?

Hyundai recommends having your brakes checked every time you get your tires rotated, about every six months or 7,500 miles. If you commute in heavy traffic and use your brakes often, you’ll need to get an inspection more frequently.

What is included in a brake job or brake repairs?

A brake job or brake repairs usually involves replacing the brake linings (which means replacing the brake pads and/or shoes), resurfacing or replacing the rotors and/or drums, adding new brake fluid or bleeding the system as needed, and looking for other worn components.

How much does it cost for brake repairs or brake replacement?

Brake repairs or brake replacements for your Hyundai depends on your model type and the type of repairs needed. Hyundai brake repairs and replacements currently start at $157.00 and go up to $399.00, and labor cost is $90.00 per hour. This pricing does not include taxes, fees, and does not factor in your unique location or related repairs that may also be needed.

How long does a brake repair or brake replacement take?

Under normal circumstances, brake repairs or replacement will take on average 1-2 ½ hours; however, based on the number of repairs, it could run a little longer.

Is it worth getting brakes done at the dealership?

Absolutely. The best place to have brake repair or replacement performed is at the dealership because we use original Hyundai parts, and labor usually bills out a little higher than independent shops due to our Hyundai training, certifications and continuing education requirements that are required to work on your Hyundai.
