wrong with your brakes? Was this
with a Sonata or other model?
The car is an 02 Sonata LX with 72,000
miles on it. The problem has
been vibration when the brakes are applied that
feels like warped
rotors. The original rotors were turned twice, only to solve
problem for a few thousand miles. New rotors were installed by the
and they seemed to be OK for around 10,000 miles before the
Then the dealer refused to repair the problem,

just replaced the rotors and pads with high performance models
from EBC and

brakes were used on cars and never had
this problem before. I think Hyundai

not think they care.
