Sound's like it's making the same noise my wifes car was making .(06 Sonata). I changed rotors and brake pads and no more noise. If it only happens when you step on the brakes then it sound's like you need a brake job a very easy fix. Good Luck

Brakes are considered a wear and tear item and probably are not covered under warranty. If it less than 12 months/12,000 miles you might be able to "convince" the service rep to replace them claiming they should not have worn so fast.

Thank you so much, I thought it could be related to the salt recall on the A frame of the 2001 hyundi,

front breaks are worn out.
