    Take it back and tell them whats been happening since the accident. Sounds like your ABS module might be messed up and is locking the brake up on that one side

    Just want to add that brakes,clutch and other wear items are covered 12/12000 . So if it's under that it should be covered by warranty even if it's a wear item. The accident may complicate things though

    Update.... Car still pulls, and is getting worse. Stealer ship had my car 2 days and didn't find anything so I jacked up the rear, and spun the tires by hand
    RR tire spun decent, LR spun around a few times and stopped... Car is pulling to right so my thought is...LR caliper is sticking and so the brakes are getting hot and fading but the right side brakes aren't. So the right side has 100% stopping power where as the left side only has 50%....
    Thoughts?
    Oh and they blamed the evilla rear brace even though I told them about this almost 8 monthes before getting the brace... Idiots

    I will chime in here.

    How are the front ones? Do they spin easily?
    As for your thoughts if they are correct - hard to say, but generally yes - fading is a killer. Yet, they would be smoking hot after such trip. Especially in Phoenix area.

    Since you say ABS has issues, did you test it? If not, take the car to a dirt road. I bet you have plenty of nice, flat, sand covered roads in AZ. Take the car to about 30 MPH, slam the brakes. See what happens. Then do 40 MPH and start pushing brake pedal harder and harder until, even when the wheels start locking keep pushing to see if ABS is fully functional.

    Pulling - I am not sure if this was covered. I do not recall if yours is AT, but what gear you are in? Did you try same test of sudden braking in neutral so that powertrain is excluded? Finally, do one more thing - pump the brake twice before hitting it hard.

    I am just trying to exclude things here...

    The sad reality is the rear on these cars all non multi link rear Kia and Hyundai the ladder frame is very weak and loose . A mild good fix is a rear sway bar . I complained about this once a on the first gen forte group and got flamed saying I was a bad driver . Bs the car design lacks a rear support system . Dodge uses a watts system and their older pan hard . Both systems work well . I'm planning to create a watts system for mine in the future when time and money become available in the same time lmao ! So order a rear sway/torsion bar and your problem will go away .

    That was yours 999 post

    I also have no problems with pulling... so different design between years again?
    Plus, torsion beam is not so bad. It is light and stiff (in turns).
