anyone else having the braking issue? recommended fix? back to dealer?
Find a big parking lot in a high school or empty shopping center. Now you want to get up to about 70mph and then hit the brakes hard and get down to about 5mph, DO NOT COME TO A COMPETE STOP!!!!. Repeat, repeat, repeat and repeat. Now go and drive around w/o using the brakes for 5 minutes to give them a chance to cool. Return to parking lot and repeat the braking 5x,
then cool the brakes off. Do it one more time and see if squeaking has gone away. You may have glazed the pads. You want to smell the brakes and get them hot. You may have to this 5 times but try three and see if it works.
DO NOT COME TO A COMPETE STOP WHILE DOING THIS!!!!
