Getting your 2018 Santa Fe’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem.

You know your Hyundai Santa Fe best. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. 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 do 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your Santa Fe right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Hyundai Santa Fes that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Hyundai's standards.
