Ask Smithy Xtra Hyundai Excel brake pads
On a small car like that I would expect the pads to last 40,000-50,000 km, so I wouldn’t expect the pads to be worn out yet. It could be that the disc rotors themselves need to be replaced. If the pedal is going too far down and feels like it’s not stopping the car very well I would get the brakes bled.
Clutch gone in Hyundai Elantra
Back in the old days when car brakes were dodgy it was advisable downshift through the gearbox to assist the brakes in slowing car, but today's bakes are more than capable of slowing the car without using the gearbox. Every shift wears the clutch a little more; so eliminating shifts will increase the life of the clutch.
Paint on the early Hyundais wasn't great and it's not unusual to see bumpers and rear-view mirrors minus paint. That sort of thing can happen when you buy a cheap and cheerful car.
