This way, you will always be able to come to a safe stop without rear ending the vehicle you are trailing. If you have any questions about what your specific Hyundai model requires, get in touch with our Service Department!

Why Should I Change My Brake Pads?

Before we go over the warning signs that will appear to tell you your brakes are past their window of effectiveness, let’s go over the purpose they serve. These components are essential to the success of your daily commutes, because they are your first line of defense when there is a potential collision in front of you. Since you won’t have much warning to avoid the impending danger, it is important that your pads are prepared to swiftly bring you to a grinding halt the moment you press down on the pedal. If you wait too long, their erosion can mean the difference between avoiding a collision and having one occur. It is also crucial to understand their degradation depends on your driving habits. For instance, if you like to put the pedal to the metal, then you are putting more stress on your components to bring you to a complete stop. To help them last longer, try pressing down on them earlier to come to a slower standstill. 

Warning Signs

There are a few warning signs that will tell you your brake pads have worn too far and require a replacement. The most obvious factor to be aware of is if you hear a grinding or scraping sound coming from your undercarriage, as this signifies they have worn all the way down to the metal. The noise you are hearing is this hard surface making contact with your wheels! Another thing to be cognizant of is your brake pedal producing a spongy feeling or it comes to the floor on its own when you press down on it. Lastly, you can take a peek for yourself to see how much life they have left in them. New components are usually 10 to 12 millimeters in width. So, if you notice yours are around three to four millimeters, then you are ready for a visit to our Service Department

I have had bad experiences at dealerships (not this dealership) in the past so tended to avoid them unless necesay. But all my dealings with pohanka over the last several years have been so good that i started to use them regularly. When the engine on my hyundai seized at 160k miles i took it in but figured it was going to be a waste of time and i was going to get rid of the car. Low and behold they actually got me a new engine at no cost even though it was beyond the warranty mileage. But it wasnt just this one instance, like i said i have always had good interactions with this dealership. Highly recomended.

My experience with Pohanka Hyundai was amazing. They go above and beyond to get you in the vehicle you desire and at a rate/payment your comfortable with! My sales manager Adam was AMAZING! Talk about a great guy! He really got me a deal I couldn’t refuse! I originally went too Kia of Fredericksburg looking at the Telluride. Kia told me they couldn’t get me financed but my credit was good. I left Kia and drove 2 blocks to Hyundai where I bought a 2020 Palisade! I was in and out in no time! I totally recommend this dealership and I will without a doubt be a returning customer! Thank you Pohanka and a huge thanks to Adam!!

This was my first time ever buying a brand new car. I had originally went just to see if I could find a style/model of car I would want , even if not a Hyundai. Was greeted by krystin who was polite and friendly and very helpful! It was never awkward, she engaged in conversation not only with me but my young teen brother. This experience was so much less stressful then I thought it would be, my first experience at a different dealership was stressful, and took DAYS. I’m happy with my over all experience

I bought a new Elantra here today and as usual, the experience was great. I've previously bought cars here, my Father bought his cars here, and there's never been a bad experience. From sales to service, this dealership goes above and beyond. That's why they've been in business for so long. Big shout out to Izzie, Tim, and Rod for helping me out today!

I got undivided attention from my salesman, Roman. He was very knowledgeable about the Nissan suv I bought. I love my car. My only complaint was that I was told to come in when Mr Pohanka would be there but he didn’t come to our booth to meet us.
