CTS Brakes dust

Re: CTS Brake dust
I recently purchased a 2010 CTS Sportwagon. What a wonderful vehicle, only ruined by the horrible front wheel brake dust. What a shame. I have had a lot of cars in my 60 years and none, (barring my daughter's Dodge Caravan) have ever produced brake dust like this CTS. Is anyone else annoyed by this issue? Has anyone found the solution to either eliminating, or "easy" cleaning (my finger is wearing out).

Modern brake pads can tend to dust as the compromise of wear and braking power is engineered.

If you have the factory coated wheels, try a wheel cleaner like Mothers Foaming All Wheel & Tire Cleaner -- spray it on, let it set for 30 seconds or so (scrub a little if necessary) and hose off with a strong spray. Cleans tires real well, too!
