Your Hyundai vehicle came with a fully operational brake system that was installed at the factory. It's one of the most important safety features on your car or SUV. For you, it's a pretty simple process. You press your foot against the brake pedal and the rotation of the tires slows. Use enough pressure, your wheels stop completely. It's a lot more involved than that, however.
How Brakes Work
When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, that sends a signal to the master brake cylinder to release brake fluid to the brake calipers. That forces the calipers to clamp onto the brake rotors, creating the resistance that slows your wheels. Since the calipers and rotors are both made of metal, the calipers feature brake pads that prevent metal-on-metal contact that can cause significant problems – and unpleasant noises.
How to Identify Brake Troubles
Eventually, those brake pads will wear down due to the tremendous pressure and heat created by the friction between the brake calipers and brake rotors. Signs of brake failure include:
- Your dash warning light alerts
- It takes more time and distance to fully stop
- You hear squealing, squeaking, or grinding when you apply the brakes
- Your brake pedal feels soft or squishy
- Your vehicle pulls to one side when you brake
