:trophy:Well I thought it over very carefully and decided to get Emma fixed up.
Fixing a car - especially the routine things that all cars need sooner or later - is always smarter than buying a new one.
A new car costs five or ten brake jobs as soon as we drive it off the lot, in initial depreciation. And for what? To feel good for a few days until we get our first scratch? What an insane game we play.
Andrew, part of the problem with Hyundai brake pads is the tight fit. In addition to greasing the slides every year or two, consider grinding a thin layer of metal off the tabs so they fit a bit looser. Did this for my daughter's Elantra, and as a result the original brakes are still working great after six years of Ottawa's worst.
Enjoy your new old car
