I have had my '12 CTS-V Wagon for about 18 months. It had 7000 miles on it when i got it and 20,000 now.
Since I bought it when the emergency brake is set it starts with the normal actuator noise, but the last second sounds like metal rubbing on metal. Sort of a grinding or scraping noise.
Since my wagon is a manual transmission I set the emergency brake every time I park. Passengers always ask me if something is wrong with the car when I set the brake. The sound greatly detracts from an otherwise wonderful car.
The local dealer has looked at 4 times so far while doing other routine services but hasn't solved it for more than a week or so on any trip.
Has anyone else encountered this? I didn't come with anything searching.
My 2014 manual wagon e-brake is totally silent. I wouldn't mind a little sound. Sometimes I am a bit too quick on the switch and it doesn't set the brake. I have to look at the dashboard to see if it is working.
