2010 Santa Fe AWD Limited...is there a known problem with the brakes on these models? It seems that normal stop and go traffic, that the brakes seem to fade towards the end of a normal stop. I realize that all brakes when heated up enoguh will experience some sort of fade, but this is normal 35mph stop and go city driving/stopping where i notice the fade towards the stop where you feel like you should let off then pump for the last 15 feet or so. Since this is my wifes car and i drive a different car, i thought it was just the way i was expecting the brakes to work, but she even told me she notices the same...her previous car was a 2002 AWD Santa Fe and the brakes seemed better on the 2002 than the 2010.

For sure I'd take it to the dealer and complain first, see if they'll do anything, since it's still completely under warranty. If not, there's a wide range of aftermarket stuff out there that is superior.

This is not normal. The brake pads might be glazed and in need of a light sanding. Fortunately, with only 2,000 miles your dealer should take care of it at no charge.
