My '07 Sol GXP did this one day. It was the disc brake guard rubbing the rotor ever so slightly. Don't touch it until the brakes cool off, it might be very hot. With my problem, just pulling it outboard towards the rim by hand was an effective fix. That was last year. has not returned.

Of course, it could be a dozen other things but checking the cheap and things first won't hurt

SS brakes squeak. Mine started at 1700 miles. Do a burnish, it'll cure it for a few hundred miles, but it will come back. Turn up the radio or get a loud exhaust. LOL.

Take it to the dealer and let them worry about it.

Brembos squeak. However, mine were SQUEALING after a couple thousand. Took the car in for a warranty fix, and they hooked me up with some new pads- sporting roller skates on the back. Squealing stopped.

Not sure about the constant squeaking, but there's a good chance after you handle the brakes (not breaks) that sound disappears as well...

My 2012 has the roller skates...they still squeal. I would be wary of trying to have the dealer correct it. I've seen what techs do to attempt a "fix", and all it does is shorten the life of the pads and still leaves you with a squeal.

Might also be something in your driveline, like your universal joint, although they usually only get heard during acceleration. I'd say your brakes are the cause though. Hopefully.

Good luck. My car has a rotational squeak from the wheel up at any speed depending on the angle of the steering wheel. Dealer cant 'reproduce' even though I can make it happen while driving into the service bay. I gave up and will replace the shitty oem parts when warrenty is up.

Chevy has a bulletin out about it...says it's the nature of the brembo brake. I change out mine for EBC brakes (got set of 4 $225 on Amazon) changed them out (took 45 minutes) Brakes squealed for first 500 miles....THEN STOPPED SQUEALING! Magic. Buy EBC reds....works.
BTW hell, highwater, dealership, brake cleaner, stomp and set... couldn't get the OEM's to stop making noise.

Yep, these big Brembos squeak a bit. I can hear mine every now and then, coming to a stop. The rotors don't have any obvious damage, the pad life is somewhere around 90%+.

Ditto on not taking it to a dealer if the problem appears relatively minor or a nuisance. Most techs will get in your car and beat on it until they, too, hear the squeaking. They might have a fix; or maybe not.

I do apologize for the frustrations you may be experiencing with your brakes. Have you been able to get a proper diagnosis from a dealership? They should also be able to check your VIN for any applicable warranties as well!

I have taken my SS to the dealership 3 times now for this very issue and the first time they resurfaced the rotor but it came back. The next two times they said they could not replicate the problem. He found the bulletin for the issue and that was pretty much the end of it. For me the noise is not just on slow stop but when i am just rolling foward, hard stops and slow. I try to go from 60-25 fairly quickly but it does not help the problem. I can't stand rolling up to a light in such a nice car and having my brakes make noise its embarrassing.

I had the roller skates style pads that were quiet at first but started squealing badly after 3-4K miles. I replaced them with Hawk ceramics (around $200 for all 4 wheels) and they are much quieter. I do still get an occasional squeal coming to a stop. They also dust a lot less than the OEM pads.

I had that issue w/ my '10 Malibu. Used to drive me nuts, and I also heard it more when next to a jersey wall. That was in the fall of '11. As the weather cooled it seemed to lessen, and eventually dissipate altogether. Maybe it just seemed that way b/c my windows were up? Anyhow, dealer also couldn't remedy the issue. Funny b/c once I gave it to svc for the afternoon so they could drive it, hear it for themselves. Tech said he didn't hear anything, but when I got my car back, my radio station was on some xm hip-hop station.... I wonder how one listens for brake squeal while listening to the radio?

Dealer will be able to help you under warranty better than a website.

I have had this issue with Brembos before. I had some on a Stang that I once had (I know, I grew up though) and they would squeak/screach when I came to a slow stop. I was at a track day and this exact discussion came up. Why do my brakes squeak like that? This elderly gentlemen asked me, do they work? I replied, Yes but they squeak at low speeds. He said, well son, they werent made to use in parades. LOL Point taken! Later I learned that this is a very common trend with Brembo Brake systems. When you utilize a high performance brake system some times you sacrifice a little noise. If you add performance exhaust to the equation though you dont hear it that much. If anything, knowing that your Brembos squeak, you can tell your freinds what a wise man once told me. "They werent made to use in parades"

I am sorry to hear this. If you could please send me any more details regarding this issue via PM, I will gladly be able to look into this issue for you to see if there are any options available. We do value your concerns. I look forward to your response.

Wash the wheels and brakes more often. If you clean out all that dust they tend the squeak much less.

i knoww!! for all the money chevy has and all these other company's have, you'd think they could invests a little money to quit the squeaking. when the untrained ear hears squeaking coming from a car they automatically think something is wrong with it.
