THE BRAKES MAKE HORRIBLE CREAKING AND GRINDING NOISES WHEN WET. SOMETIMES IT WILL EVEN CAUSE THE CAR TO SHAKE. I HAVE CONTACTED HYUNDAI SEVERAL TIMES AND THEY DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUS. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALERSHIP SEVERAL TIMES AND THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIX IT. I JUST TOOK IT IN LAST WEEK AND THEY EVEN TRIED TO GET ME TO PAY 100 FOR A CLEANING OF THE BRAKE COMPONENTS, I FEEL I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY TO FIX A PROBLEM WE HAVE HAD SINCE WE BOUGHT THE CAR NEW AND HAVE HAD IT IN SEVERAL TIMES AND THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIX IT. I AM NOT CONFIDENT DRIVING THE CAR NOW AND CLEARLY NO ONE WOULD WANT IT BUY IT OFF US WHEN IT MAKES SUCH HORRIBLE NOISES. I ALSO BELIEVE IT CANNOT BE SAFE AND WILL CAUSE PREMATURE FAILURE OF THE BRAKE CALIPERS AND / OR POSSIBLE THE BALL JOINTS OR FRONT STEERING SUSPENSION. I THINK THEY HAVE A FAULTY DESIGN IN THE BRAKE HYDRAULICS AND THE DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURES BETWEEN THE FRONT AND REAR BRAKES ARE NOT RIGHT.
