Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

Front brakes feel mushy after being replaced

Well my 2006 sonata had a bit of a shake when braking with the original brake pads about 60,000 miles old. So I had the front rotors resurfaced, and replaced the brake pads as you would with any other car. Now the car brake petal feels mushy and sometimes it feels like the the petal sinks to the floor. The brakes work fine except for the fact that the petal does not feel like it did before, it actually got worse in my opinion. Please let me know if there is a trick or if I am going crazy. Thanks : )

You have air in your break lines. The two ways you can solve this problem is have the breaks blead to get the air out of the lines, or you can take the top of the break reservoir and pump your breaks to the floor. DONOT DO THIS With the car moving. What this will do is force the air to the reservoir.

Try re-bleeding ALL wheels starting with furthest away - pass rear, then driv rear, then pass front and driv front. That should get your pedal back. To reset light you need ABS reset tool and it's EXPENSIVE. Have a good competent shop reset it for you. Body shops can reset them also.

2006 Rav4 mushy brakes. THis car has had mushy brakes since we purchased it. Pedal sinks quite a way before brakes engage. Pedal pressure builds after several frequent uses. This is very un-nerving when...

it sounds like the master cylinder, but I would bleed the lines first, if that doesn't help then I would replace the cylinder. It is not that hard to replace just make sure you drain all the fluid first as it is very corrosive and bled the brakes once the new one it installed. it should not cost more the a couple hundred bucks. Good luck Tim

Rear Brake Pad - scam?

90% chance you are being scammed. This seems to be routine at a lot of franchise places i'm afraid.

Brakesa are jumping when brakes are applied

i do believe you mean the service brakes, and when pushing the brake pedal the truck shakes?

Pad transfer will cause uneven brake discs with humps on em. Every time you then step on the brake pedal you'll feel the pads going over the humps, causing the shakes.

The best way to get rid of this is to replace the disc brakes with new discs.
Remember to change the pads too.

Premature brake wear on my 2005 Honda Civic

What it sounds like is you have very poor quality pads on the car. The subject of brake pads can go on for days. If it was me I would buy a top of the line name brand pads , if the rotors can be turned the turn them or replace them. Also struts and shocks that are old affect the brakes and stopping distance. I think someone has just sold you poor quality brakes. and if your rotors are warpped this will cause the wiggle you feel when stopping.

you are due for new pads.  Most tire places check pad wear for free. you may also have another problem that they will discover.  Get it fixed as it's really dangerous to drive with defective brakes.

Most brake pads on GM products (and just about everyone else's) have little scrapers on the sides of the pads that will cause the brakes to squeak all the time when you wear down to their level. When you hear that constant noise it is time to replace the pads ASAP. If you put it off too long, you will probably end up replacing the rotors too. If you drive like me (jack rabbit starts and sudden stops) the original pads might make it to 35-50,000 miles. If you drive like a granny (slow starts and coasting to a stop) you might be looking at 45-60,000 miles before replacement.
