WBM, along with co-counsel, is currently litigating a putative class action involving a potential defect in the rear brakes of the Hyundai Sonata, model years 2006 to 2010. This suit alleges that premature wear and replacement is required due to a defect involving the brakes, which may involve defective parts and/or premature corrosion, and alleges that such repair or replacement should be covered by the warranty. The suit seeks reimbursement of the cost of repair and replacement of the rotors and/or calipers. In addition, there have been over 150 complaints relating to the rear brakes in the 2006-2010 Sonatas filed by consumers with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration’s Office of Defects Investigation (NHTSA-ODI). These complaints indicate that owners have experienced problems with their rear bakes as early as 23,000 miles.
