Sometimes brakes just squeak.
To stop a car, metal is coming in contact with metal and squeaking can be a side effect of that. A lot of new cars are using harder materials for brake pads that can cause a squeak, especially when you first apply the brakes while driving. Dusty, sandy or humid driving conditions can also cause brakes to squeak. But it is always a good idea to have your brakes checked out if they are squeaking. Especially if the noise is loud and occurs every time you apply the brakes.
Most people are keeping vehicles for longer than ever before because they are made to be more durable and reliable now. When we stay on top of our vehicle’s routine maintenance needs, we feel good knowing that everything under the hood is running smoothly. And it’s a great feeling when we are free from a hefty monthly car payment!
