I just bought a '22 Tucson Limited gas model (currently with 80 miles on it) and I am noticing that when I use auto brake hold (or auto engine start/stop) when accelerating from a stop the car makes a strange groaning sound for a second as the brakes are released. It sounds like the brakes are still being held while accelerating. Is this normal or does it have something to do with the brakes not being seated in properly yet?

When I do not use these features, I don't seem to have an issue.

I am going to call the dealer on Monday but I thought I'd check in here and see if anyone else has seen similar or might have any ideas as to what is going on.

A video is available here: IMG 0011

Thanks for any insight.

I would save yourself the time and energy. Yes mine does that sometimes. It may have stopped doing it or as many times as the car broke in.

Follow-up: I called the dealer on Monday. They informed me this is "normal" for the first few weeks of ownership, and that I should call them back if it persists thereafter as the brakes are getting broken in [along with the rest of the car, for that matter]. It's still happening, but it's not a huge deal as I don't use engine auto start-stop or auto hold frequently. But it's something I still want to stop.

Completely not normal. They are just trying to kick the can down the road.

Try not using the auto hold, keep your foot on brake and give some gas, let go of the brake do you hear it anytime while doing that? Try a couple of times.

I figured that might be the case, but I tested it again last night and this morning and no groaning sounds anymore. Perhaps I haven't given the brakes enough of a workout (my commute is very short). I'm going to keep an eye and ear on it and bring it in if it persists.

It's not an issue, other cars do that in reverse as well especially when the car isn't used much. Annoying yes but not something that's broken.

Hybrids use the brakes much less than conventional gas cars and it can lead to more brake noise from time to time especially in reverse.

It's more of it IS normal at first as the brakes wear in. Even normal on cars without it especially if car has been sitting but also after getting wet.
