2012 Patriot Squeaking Brakes
I have a 2012 Jeep Patriot with about 12,000 miles. While backing up the brakes squeak. It was slight at first but is gradually getting worse. It has been in the service department twice, and they say it was break dust. The problem has not stopped and is getting worse. Please help!

Re: 2012 Patriot Squeaking Brakes
It is probably just some normal noise, a repair would be to cut the rotors and scuff up the pads (or replace them).

The noise is likely NOT an indication of failure and there are things to remedy the noise, there is a 12mo 12k mile warranty for wear items which you are likely out of, if you are within the 12mo 12k mile warranty I would schedule an appointment with the service manager and have a chat with him. If its under warranty they should replace your pads and rotors for you for free. If your out of the 12, 12 warranty then its going to be your pocket book paying for the repairs.
