The weather was nice the sun was out and the birds were chirping over all a very nice day to drive the V. So i drove to work and parked it in the garage. After 9 hours of work i start up the V and i think i heard the wheel click so to make sure if it was clicking i did couple of slow speed left and right 180 degree turns. It was not the wheel clicking it was just the normal tire hopping. Any way so i take the car on the road and when i am on a parkway i roll the windows down and i hear a horrible screeching (kinda like metal on rotor) kind of sound coming and i think it is coming from the car next to me i speed away and when i reach the next car the sound is back again this got me worried. So i pulled to the side of the road checked all 4 wheels and nothing is stuck in the break nothing under the car either i kick the tires :) and then get back in and start to drive after a min the screeching is back. I called Cadillac customer service and tell them what is happening they said if i can drive to a dealer ship they will be happy to look at it. i said fine send me a tow truck. while waiting for the tow truck i do a couple of more 360 degree turns to see if i can make the breaks settle back or something and i hear no sound. i think hmm so may be the problem is gone i drive and 10 min later the screeching is back. so it looked like if i let the car or brakes cool down the sound goes away for a little while and then comes back. At very slow speeds it felt like the brakes were engaging. so i put the car in the parking garage and started waiting for hte tow truck. after hour and a half i thought i try again so this time i start driving the car 5 min, 10 min, 20, min 30 min and no screeching noise. i called the tow service and tell them to cancel. Drove the car around 50 miles or so and the screeching never came back. I drove the car next day for a little while and so far the screeching has not come back. i don't want to take the car in and tell the service that i heard a screeching noise that i can not duplicate please see what you can find. Any one here that has made it this far of my story can think of what might have happened to me?
