Your car needs the front calipers to be replaced even if only one is liking.
If your car is 10 years guaranty it still under guaranty and it can be fixed at the Hyundai dealer.
If you can not get your car to be repaired by the dealer under guaranty then the price of each caliper is around $40.00 in most of the autoparts.

Sounds like you have a seized passenger side caliper assembly. May need to be replaced, in which case you are better off replacing both front calipers as a set.

Hey. I have a 2001 gmc jimmy. Brake pedal is to the floor, whether running or not, i go to a bottle of breakfluid every week, no visible leaks. Please help!!?

remove the vacuum hose to the brake booster and check for oil wetness inside. Check under the floor mat for brake fluid inside car. Check carefully all calipers for oil leaking at pistons.

Brakes only work on passenger side front and

On your car there is a master cylinder (where you put the fluid in) and inside it there are 2 pistons that push the fluid through the brake lines to apply your brakes. Fluid from one piston applies pressure to right front and left rear the other the opposite two.
If your brake pedal travel is farther than it should be it is more than likely a leak in your system. If the pedal is higher and harder than it should be then a blockage is likely.
A leak could be anywhere in the system and you will need to look for where it is going. Rusted out lines and wheel cylinders the most common.
A blockage would be quite rare and to check for it you would need to start cracking open the fittings to determine the area.
It is also possible that the wheel cylinder on the right rear and the left front brake caliper are seized.

Brakes will drag on passenger front and I am losing brake fluid slowly

sounds like your piston for your caliper is shot. leaking around seal onto brake pad and or ground. remove passenger tire look behind disc that is the one that will be glazed. look for wet around metal should be dry if looks like it was recently sprayed with some kinda oil its leaking. you need to replace caliper.
