    Brakes squeaking

    I have 1200 miles on my V and my brakes are squeaking. Does anybody have any ideas why? Doubt it could be brake dust I clean the car twice a week. I don't clean my brakes though, not sure if brake dust could have built up and is causing them to squeak.

    Common with metallic pads.

    Sorry to disagree with you.

    Once the brakes are seated in they are not going to squeal or squeak. If I were the owner I would try to burnish the brakes and if still a problem, then visit with your dealer as something is not right.

    Yes, they should be quiet unless something is wrong.

    I have an appointment at the dealer tomorrow, we'll see what they say. I hope they don't have to give me a loaner unless its a V!

    Loaners are the biggest downside, I got a teal DTS. Ctsv is so different than anything else in the line up.

    Re: Brakes squeaking

    mine squeak too. pads look fine. I am guessing its because i haven't washed my car in 8 weeks. Rims are still clean, brakes are spotless. I swear by Armor all wheel protectant.

    The new meguires stuff absolutely does not work at all, fail on the copy attempt.

    Armor all wheel protectant? You put it on your rims and it keeps the brake dust off? I brought the car to the dealer yesterday, so supposedly GM is having some issues with the brakes so they are sending me new pads and rotors and they are sending mine out to the factory because they wanna see whats going on.

    I have a 2012 with just over 1000 miles and mine are having the same problems! Is it a problem in just the 12s or are others having this problem too??

    Re: Brakes squeaking

    I have a 2012 sedan with 5000 miles. The brakes have been squeaking since a few days after I took delivery. I have taken the car out twice to bed the brakes. It didn't help. Still does it. Drives me crazy. I'll talk to the dealer about it next time I take it in for service.
