My brakes on the rear passenger side have been seizing up. I have replaced the rotors three times, brake pad, three times, calipers twice. I just don't understand what is going on. And no one can give me answer. This problem has been and issue not only with my car but others too. Something needs to be done by the dealership or the company.

Sonata GLS

  • Automatic transmission

Replaced rear calibers for the second time in 6 months. Thr first time was in September 2014. I noticed a very loud grinding noise in the rear when applying brakes after a short road trip. After having the pads replaced with top of the line pads, I noticed a smell of burning. After inspecting the brakes I noticed a significant amount of heat coming from the passenger rear brakes. Very very hot. After further inspection, the Calibers needed replaced.

Everything was fine after this until a few days ago I smelled burning again. Today after parking the car I could hear noise from the back (the clicking kind of noise when something is cooling off) . I noticed the rear passenger brake was again extremely hot. I guess the solution is to replace yet again.
