I don't have this confirmed yet by a dealer, but I think the brake bias on my '19 Sonata SEL is off by quite a bit. At my 40K mile service inspection, I was told I had 8mm on the front pads, and only 6mm on the rear pads. I'm thinking the bias should be 75-25 or 80-20; if I'm right about that, then I can't see any way that my rear pads would be 50% more worn than the front pads. I'm assuming the pads all started at 12mm; for me to go through only 4mm in front and 6m in the rear, the bias couldn't be what I think it should be.

I think that a bad Master Cylinder could potentially cause it, but I don't think the separate circuits work that way. Rather than one circuit for the front and one for the rear, I always thought they were on the opposite wheel from front to back. For example, one circuit will power the RF and LR brakes, and the other will power the LF and RR brakes.

Anyone else have this issue? If so, did you figure it out, and what was the problem and solution?
