I have a 2012 CTS V coupe with 8,000 miles and just passed inspection. However the breaks squeak bad will coming to a slow stop. Any ideas of what I can do?

odd normally factory pads don't squeak, try taking to a spray bay carwash and powerwash the wheels/brakes and see if its just dust build up...... Any way someone slipped on some different brake pads?

My brakes on my 97 GTP had the same problem. I tried this stuff "Gunk - squeal medic" and it worked on a short therm (the magnesium will patch up your discs). I ended up installing ceramic pads and after 9 years they are still silent.

I've noticed the low speed, light pedal braking squeak on my 09 V prior to trading it and on my current 11 V wagon. I just deal with it since its intermittent on mine. It would be interesting to find the root cause since I'm not alone.
