In general, manufacturers like Hyundai advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months.

When should you change the brake pads on your 2009 Hyundai Elantra? It depends on you and your driving style. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your Elantra. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Hyundai Elantras that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your Elantra, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Hyundai’s standards.
