Hi there, yes ours has just started-rear drivers side v hot-steaming and smelly-not having time to get out to the dealers i have just taken it apart-the pads seemed tight and there was no grease anywhere-so worked the piston in and out and greased it and the pad carriers and put it all back-need to go out for a a run now; there was no copper ease anywhere so am hoping it was just winter corrosion!

Hi ,I had the same problem when driving on the freeway for a while, while slowing down for the offramp the rear brakes made a loud bang and locked for a few seconds then released.Took it to Hyundai and they stripped and greased all the rear caliper components.Done about 6000km for far and no problems.

Our i20 which is just over an year old had brake failure this morning, my wife was in a public car park where the brake pedal became non-responsive and car kept moving despite the brake pedal being fully pressed. She used hand brakes to stop it, luckily avoided going into other car. The RAC took the car to Arnold Clark, and they are telling me that they can not fault it. We are very worried to bring the car back home, has anybody else had similar problem.

Did the pedal go to the floor?
Where the brakes noticeable hot?

If the answer is YES to these questions, suspect "vapour lock", high water content in the fluid.
The brakes will feel and work fine when all is cool again
Change Brake fluid with new DOT4 fluid from a sealed container every two years regardless of mileage.

If the pedal was just solid and did not work, you have lost "servo assistance".
This could be a faulty vacumn pipe from manifold (petrol) or vac pump (Diesel).
Have it carefully inspected.
Also did the "hand brake light" stay on at this point?
More thoughts, Chris

YES, the break pedal goes to the floor and doesn't come back until we manually pulled it up.
I didnt check the heat of breaks.. But really scared when the breaks are not working properly.
Could you please tell me a temporary solution for this problem because i came to a rural place, far away from the city (around 250 kms from the nearest Hyundai service center)?

If the pedal goes to the floor, it is NOT safe to drive, should this happen again it could be very serious.
You either have a leak of fluid or a Master Cylinder fault.
If the fluid level is ok, your Master Cylinder has failed.
This assumes your system has clean un contaminated brake fluid.

Make sure your dealer knows the cylinder went TO The Floor.

Good luck, Chris

I have come across similar situation. I am totally worried.
HASS guys are saying that the brakes are working fine now. Dont know how to address this issue to Hyundai techies !!!

Hyundai should provide at least one service call with technical guys, so that we can explain them the issues/faults that occurs in the vehicles.
