Default squeeky brakes at 4200 miles

Howdy everyone,

I have noticed that sometimes when stopping at a stop light my front breaks will squeel. I only have 4200 miles on the car. Anyone else have this problem or is this normal brake noise? any opinions on if I should I take it to the dealer to have it checked out?

Thanks a bunch,

I would have it checked out by the dealer's. Think the brakes have a warranty of 1 year/12,000 miles. So any problems need to be taken care of before that time or you may end up paying. I only notice a squeeking noise in the mornings because of the rust forming overnite on the rotors. But after a few miles, all is quiet.

It\'s nice to be important, but it\'s more important to be nice.

I would use this as an excuse to test your 60ft....Heard that if you go to a deserted road, get up to speed then slam on your brakes, the noise will go away. Just a thought [8)]
