Hey all,

after going through the replace-the-tires-after-9-months-of-driving crap, I am hoping I am not running into another CTS-V quick wear issue...

has anyone had issue with squeaky brakes in the 11,000 to 12,000 mile range?

At first I thought it was just the initial rust wear on the first/second brake application after the car sat, but besides being in a massive drougt, it is happenening more frequently and not going away right away.

I'm going to take it to the dealership, but alway like to go in armed with the ammo of knowledge endowed by this message board community.

Thanks to all in advance!

My brakes do that on my 'stang when they get dirty......or if they got glazed....for dirty, clean entire disk, calipers and pads with brake cleaner(careful it sprays and splashes), maybe some anti squeak on the back of the pads or if they are glazed take some scotchbrite to the disks and the pad face. Worked for me Good luck
