I have searched the forum for: "Brake" "cost" "Paid" and various other key words and can not find anything about how much people have paid for brake service for a Sonata Limited. I noticed people have talked about what brakes they would like to purchase for this car for performance.

I was quoted $235 for the front brakes and $235 for the back ($470), this includes parts and labor (rotors are fine). Did anyone have hyundai replace their brakes and if so how long are the parts covered under warranty? (1 year?)

Does anyone know what the original equitment brakes are? I have seen various posts with different answers.

I will most likely go with my local service garage for the brake work, but wanted to know if hyundai had any perks. The only reason my car ever see's their service department is for warranty work.

Before this car I had a wrangler and I would only pay about 300 for service and brakes, usually along with an oil change too.

Any info will be great. Thanks.

The fronts are metallic and the rears are organic. Brakes should run about $100-150 per axle at any local shop. The rears should last at least twice as long as the fronts. I got ceramic front pads from Autozone for less than $50. I installed them myself and saved on the labor.

Dear yj,

You have options for new brakes other than the dealer. Try locating a 'Just Brakes' in the DC area. Even with ceramics, I got the front and back brakes replaced for $275 with labor. And a lifetime guarantee.

Where's my bailout?

I paid only $50 for Genuine Hyundai Brake pads and i did it myself for the front , you need special tool for the rear if you do them yourself. I know i saved about 200 bucks doing it myself.

I recommend that you use Hyundai Genuine parts, i haved learned the hard way you get what you pay for.

i would NOT recommend Hyundai "Genuine" brake pads... you can get very good and reputable ceramic pads (Raybestos, Akebono, etc) for the same or less than Hyundai semi-metallic pads.. i got Raybestos Advanced Technology Ceramic Pads for the same price you paid for Hyundai Semi's

i wouldnt get things like "Pro Stop" pads or anything, but there is a difference between paying more than you have to and buying smart...

I second that. I was not impressed with the factory parts. Even the rotors were toast at 40k. The good quality aftermarkets will be better quality and probably still cost less money than Hyundai brake parts. Now I just have to get a day or two off and get them installed.

Yea but that's just it. You bought a used Car with 26 Thousand miles on it. Who knows what happened?

And for the record Hyundai Factory parts have not been proven inferior, except by you it seems?

I got new rotors and front pads couple months ago. It was around $250 for OEM. And yes, I know you can get better brakes than OEM but I got them because of little to no dust and relatively decent performance. Each combination of rotor/pads feels differrent and I never know what feels better/worse to me before I try it. Also some brakes develop a lot of dust or some wierd noises. I decided that this time I really didn't want to guess and try different parts until I find what I like so I simply went with what I had before and knew it was ok.
