Sqeeky Brakes

Aloha all,

I have had my car for 8 months, and 4700 miles. The brakes sqeal very badly with light brake pressure when you first drive off in the car after it has been sitting a while, and the brakes are not warmed up yet. It is getting to the point now that it has started to sqeal most of the time even after you have ben driving a while. It only does this with light break pressure on the pedal.
It will be going in for the 5000 mile service soon, I had already had the dealer change the oil at 1000 miles, and now break sqeal then.
I wonder if it will be covered under warrantee? The pads are a wear item, but so fast?:eek:

I suspect the EOS has very soft brake pads fitted (is why they work so well!), the trouble with soft pads is that they can pickup dirt and dust very easily.

If I had brake squeeling like people are reporting here I would be looking to completely change the type of pad I have on the car, maybe even go ceramic.
