2012 Camaro brakes

I picked up my 2012 camaro ss car I ordered on saturday 8/20. Since it was raining here that weekend I picked it up and left it in the garage. When i drove it on monday I noticed that when I brake, theres a sort of whislting type of sound. Its not the screeching sounds when you need new brakes but a different whistle type of sound. Is this normal, or is it because its new and it should go away after some time, I only have about 230 mi on it, picked it up with 4.

If you are mechanically inclined you may want to take a look at your brake components to see if there might be something causing this. If you can't detect anything by just looking at them I would suggest taking it by the dealer to see if they might find anything that would cause this. I hope that helps.

Welcome to the club.:emoticon7:

The whistle, and the squeal are part of the package bro.

So this is normal for the brembo breaks to whistle/squeal?

V8 Brembo or V6 brakes they all make this noise, cant you see all those huge threads complaining about them! .

I only did 20K and I will be changing my pads, rotors, and brake lines with a better aftermarket brand.:(
