It's a good idea to have your 2012 Hyundai Sonata brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. 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 tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Brake problems include unusual noises, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Hyundai Sonata like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Hyundai suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our ASE Certified technicians will gladly inspect your 2012 Hyundai Sonata brakes. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 2012 Hyundai Sonata’s brake pads? 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. 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 Sonata right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Hyundai Sonata brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get 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.
Your Hyundai Sonata engine may be strong and reliable. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2012 Hyundai Sonata brake repairs. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
