Do not buy - brakes fail on lots of HYUNDAIs
By i_love_carz on

Vehicle

2009 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 6A)

Review

Brake pedal goes to the floor occasionally. No braking at all!!! I am told the ABS module has failed and not covered by warranty at 62,199 miles as I am the 2nd owner. $2,500 repair cost. This is a chronic/common problem with Hyundais and should be covered as a recall because the engineering/manufacturing process or something is obviously is defective! Do your research as brake problems with Hyundais is way too common. Go to http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov and look for yourself

The Genesis is a lot of car for the money, I'm sorry you're having a problem with the brakes. That said, a pedal that drops to the floor is most likely a by-pass problem with the master cylinder, not a failure of the ABS pump. It usually starts as an occasional occurrence, becoming more frequent as time goes by. If you are having a problem with the ABS unit, however, it IS covered under a recall from Hyundai and should cost $0 to replace. Call your local dealer or Hyundai North America for more details.
