Sonata Brake Defect
Investigating Hyundai Sonata and Santa Fe Braking System Defect
We are currently investigating a potential defect in the rear brakes of the Hyundai Sonata and Santa Fe vehicles, model years 2006-present. The investigation concerns whether the premature wear and replacement of the brake rotors and other brake components are due to a defective part in the braking system and whether this constitutes a breach of warranty on the part of Hyundai Motor Corp. It is believed that due to the excessive and unduly long pressure brought to bear by the calipers and the inferior brake parts on the vehicle, the excessive and undue pressure resulting in premature wear of brake parts, such as rotors and brake pads.
Some owners/lessees have reported a grinding noise or vibration upon applying the brakes as early as 23,000 miles requiring replacement of the rotors and pads.
