Recently we have found bunch of Hyundai Creta owners who are experiencing in braking issue and has resorted to social media expressing there concern.

 

This is related to the Brake issue in Hyundai Creta with there comments on Social Media. 

Sharing in 10 Owner Feedback on it

» Rajaram Viswanathan This post is not to influence your buying decision. I bought mine during July 2017 and not experienced anything bad till now about braking. The issue is when you do a emergency braking on a gravel road. If you are aware and cautious about it, you should be fine.

yes the abs kicks properly as soon as the road is rough or the car becomes unstable. But I think it fails to bite enough to control the car. I also yet to face it myself, but I once felt the car went little outa control when went into a pot hole


» ‎Kiran Gurung‎  Dear Creta Owner, today i had a narrow escape. Had some issues with brakes in the past but not that serious but today the brakes didnt work at all it got jammed while descending and luckily it was in low gear and the bench at road side stall saved my life. Really got second life...now i have started having second thoughts. Please get ur creta checked and if possible install rear disc brakes the drums dont work!!! Stay safe


» Bijeet Singh I am a frequent user of Creta and yes, there is definitely a breaking problem. When I experience situations on my own, don't need a third party to vouch for it


» Vikram Dholakia I've been using the vehicle since Aug 2015 and I can assure you there IS a brake problem indeed! The service station guys have NO solution for it too unfortunately


» Gowtham Varma Yeah there is a problem.

It simply gives up during panic braking especially when the roads are uneven.

Had a close call. I feel ABS is too aggressive. There is some serious flaw for sure.


» Prashant Patil Yes, i m using from one year

it has some serious problems with break, but it’s only happened with in very emergency means very close and applied break it’s gave feel break applied or not

whenever i discuss with service station guy..they start to explaining about how ABS working...but not understanding the issue and forwarding to company


» Avinash Acharya Part of the reason I sold off my Creta (Lazarus) was this exact problem. Many times, at speeds of over 80 kmph, the brakes simply didn't bite. You can imagine the panic which set in. Subsequent pumping action resulted in the ABS kicking in after the 3rd attempt (or even the 4th sometimes!), which felt as if the brake pedal was planted on a pile of sand pebbles and I had put my foot on these loose pebbles. Hyundai is well aware of this problem but hasn't done anything to rectify it. Dealership A.S.S., as usual, is clueless.

» Rajan Joshi I have posted this on Hyundai Creta official page:

There is something dangerous about breaking system of Creta. I had the scary experience, though it ended only for few seconds, I was lucky enough to write this post. I was hitting the breaks which were not responsive, as good as dead, by gods grace the breaks were live again after 5/6 seconds. I request Hyundai technical team (not addressing service Centre engineers)to look into this immediately. Most of the Creta owners have this kind of experience. Except this (unfortunately very very important) issue Creta is really a great car.

All are requested to share your experience on their page

» Rajeev Katoch I am also facing the same problem but the company guys don’t want to understand and even went on to say that poor driving I am officer in the army learnt my driving in late 80’s if something happens to me while driving it will be because of poor or faulty brake system of creta Sx+ petrol

» Ishu Ranjan Whn Abs comes into play.. Break doesnt work. In case of sudden breaking specially in hilly region. Hyundai walo Creta ke break ka kuch karo. Baal baal bach gaya main.

Even an Owner - Sanjay Khanna has started an Online Petition stating that Brake pedal gets jammed on panic braking on high speed in uneven road surface. The Petition has  got over 193 supporters  for same.

 

Our Comment

Although we have not observed any such issue on braking. Potentially as mentioned by some of these owners - they have faced the issue on high speed on emergency braking and is also referred on hill drive or uneven road conditions. So the conditions are different

Its true that ABS Kicks in when car senses even one of the wheel lock and is activated only on hard braking and one can feel a mild vibration in brake pedal

But as mentioned by one of the owner - Avinash Acharya that brakes dint bite means were not effective and he had to literally pump the brakes and it was one among reason that he has sold his Hyundai Creta car.

Leaving Post for comments if you are a Hyundai Creta owner on whats your experience on it.

Hello

I am owning Hyundai Creta Diesel Top variant since Dec 2015. My car has run almost 28000 kms only.

I had given Creta for service at Hyundai authorized dealer at Ahmedabad, Gujarat in last month. I had raised issue about ABS Light ON in display screen. They couldn't find any problem and they just erased data,reset it and made the ABS light OFF on screen display. And told that there may be some error.

When I was coming to Mumbai, ABS light was On again in between and after some time it was OFF again itself. I was not facing any issues at that time.
After some days, when I was going to Bandra, I felt like brake was not working for some seconds and then it was working perfectly. And Then, all of a sudden, I was Jammed. I tried to Push the brake paddle with full force but I felt like I was pressing some rock. Paddle was jammed and was not braking. I had to use hand brake and my luck, there was traffic and car was not in speed, but it touched Innova ahead and got little damage. (my luck it didn't happen on highway while in speed, o/w God knows what would have happened)
Hyundai service station persons don't have satisfactory explanations for this issue. Some said Abs problem will not lead to Brake failures. If it is so, what would have caused brake failure???
They are just explaining what is Abs functions.
When I googled it, came to know many are following same issues but Hyundai is not doing anything for this.

After 2 days checking, they told abs sensor are not working and will have to replace.
I don't know whether this will resolve the issue.

So my friends, who are owning Creta, please don't ignore such issues, Abs Light and brake problems.

Take Care.

i have stopped purchasing hyundai creta 2020 after i came across this issue. couple of my friends have hyundai verna and they have these issues as well and have recommended against hyundai cars. i no longer consider seltos as creta and seltos share platform and parts. there is a huge possibility that seltos may also be using same defective technology or parts like hyundai, unless hyundai decides to fix it.

I have a Creta 1.6 Petrol 2018 model. This problem is very much there. It is scary and it's not very responsible of Hyundai for not reacting to this problem and fixing this. Probably they don't know how to fix... jokes apart... it's high time they do something about this. Would definitely not buy a Hyundai next time around. Waiting for my lease to get over...

Even I was planning to buy creta 2020. Changing my decision after reading all these. One of the main reasons of my upgrade was better breaking and safety. If it cannot match it, there's no way I can think of buying this product.

I recognized on very first day of my new Creta ,
there is definitely problem with Creta breaks
and is dangerous problem,
because on smooth breaking it works fine , but only problem appears when sudden break applied,
I used number of brands from lower to higher segment, and no doubt about my judgement about breaking problem which is so dangerous as it's like failure and when it needs it,

Many in my circle ask me about review for Creta, I advised that there is breaking problem else every thing is fine,
Then one of my best friends also bought Creta after my feedback,
He having and experienced same problem ,
not once but many times,

We can understand all owner' comment above about breaking problem and we all can trust each other, but believe me Manufacturer will not accept it, because their priority is business and branding first then your safety,

I have not followed up company for this issue , because I have an experience that their answer like there is no problem,

Same problem with my Creta i.e. as you mentioned "smooth breaking it works fine , but only problem appears when sudden break applied", i am using this from 2017, faced this issue several times, whenever i approach service center they simply giving car back by cleaning break pedal and saying there is some dust which is creating the issue, they didn't identify the actual issue.

Any idea whether this issue got resolved by Hyundai ?

Why didn't you go to the consumer forum, as it is a life threatening issue.

Two weeks ago I was driving my creta and got no brakes. The car dealership said they ran tests with it and found nothing wrong with it. But I know I didn't imagine not getting brakes and driving into another care.

It is possible to hit a car from behind because of tailgating. I have seen too many drivers tailgate at high speed. I do not drive Creta, so I can not comment on brake problem. But tailgating is a common trait of India drivers.

Help
I am using creta 1.6sx auto since 2016 c
Yes from the very beginning there is breaking problem on some uneven road. When you apply breaks, it makes some rattling sound and seems like breaks are not applied. When you ask the workshop, they try to fool us saying ABS works like this only, like we do not have other cars with ABS. Unfortunately Hyundai is not caring for the life of their customers. Disappointing. If you people didn't look into the matter i will go the consumer court

Hello this is Adib Khan from Navi Mumbai, I had purchased a Hyundui Creta 1.6 SX AUTO
(MH 43 AK 0044) from KAMAL HYUNDAI it’s been 6 months since the purchase everything is really good about the car but one serious poblem! There were times when I was very close to crash the car because of the braking system! They usually just give up and this issue has been going on for a while. I am really disappointed as brakes are suppose to be the major concern of the car! They get spongy and don’t apply. I’ve read few more articles regarding the braking system in creta and there are many users Unhappy and I shall take this issue forward. This wasn’t expected from Hyundai.If I face any accident due to fail of breaking hyundai will be reponsible My previous car was an i20 and it did not have such issues.
Please look forward and get me sorted with new and better brake pads!

Dear friends, i have purchased Creta 1.4 Diesal, but there is problem in break. When we apply break on rough road the break does not apply properly and generate rattling sound in high peach which scares us while driving. This is a major problem in Creta. The machanic at service center of Hyindai fools us that this is the proof that ABS is working.
Hyundai company should resolve to this issue.

Dear Hyundai India,

Today, I faced breaking issue in CRETA 2018 E+ model while crossing the line. The break was not working at the time of emergency application. It was shocking for me for 4-7 seconds during the breaks apply appropriately. If the problem doesn't get resolved by the local service team of Hyundai, I will file complaint under consumer court.

I have 2017 model Creta. Without any doubt I can say that it has the worst braking system. Whenever the brakes are applied in emergency, it gives a feeling that something from the car is directly rubbing the road and trying to stop the car, which sometimes imbalance the car. At last the car stops. But in a span of 5 - 7 seconds it creates a panic situation, in which even the best of the driver can do accident. This car is not recommended for highway driving. Even the engineers in company's workshop does not have any answer to this. Even they are helpless. This fault is beyond repair. So think twice before buying Creta. If you are ready to ignore the brake issue then this is a good Car.

I had a similar experience while driving my Creta SX plus . The beaks did not work when I had to apply on a curve gravel road and hit another car. I am really worried about this problem. Hyundai workshop persons not competent enough to handle or understand the problem
