Wheel Bearings or brakes?

Asked by Oct 06, 2009 at 04:26 PM about the 2009 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My tires make a squealing sound when driving above 50 mph on my 2009 Hyunda Sonata.  The sound goes away
when I apply the brakes and does not happen until I've reached at least 50 mph.

I've heard that this could be my brakes indicating that they need to be changed but I've also heard that it could be my
wheel bearings.

Does anyone know which it might be and if either are covered under my warranty?

Whichever it is, your warranty should cover it, get to the dealer before whatever it is gets worse (after which they might try to argue with you about warranty coverage). The only things not covered are wear and tear, things that would wear out like brake pads, tires, etc.

Sonata is the one among the best ones manufactured by Hyundai and it is the most loved one also.
