It’s best to get a brake check before your Hyundai Santa Fe shows signs of brake troubles. We make it easy by providing free brake checks to all of our customers so that we can help stop problems before they start. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Hyundai, like a battery replacement. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Signs of brake problems include weird noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Hyundai Santa Fe like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. In general, manufacturers like Hyundai advise that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too.

How often should you change your 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Santa Fe. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Hyundai Santa Fe brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
