Squeaky Brakes
 
Anybody's brakes seem to squeak at light pressure? Mine just started doing it at 1800 miles...haven't driven it hard yet either...

try a "bed in" procedure. 2-3 60mph-5mph runs.....brake hard...but dont come to a complete stop....then a nice long drive to cool off the brakes

I have a 2012 Overland V8 that had this same problem and I tried the "bed in" procedure and it didn't work. I'm pretty sure I gave it enough time to improve or elliminate this problem (1,000 miles).

I eventually had to fight with the dealership to have them replace several components of the braking system (Front Pads & Rotors) to fix this. Once they did, the squeal went away.
