My car has recently started making a squeal noise while driving that actually goes away when I apply the brakes. What could be wrong?
Most likely your brake pads are worn sufficiently enough to allow their “wear indicators” or “sensor” to touch the disc brake rotor. When this occurs, the “sensor” emits that high pitch noise designed to warn you that your brakes need immediate attention. Have them checked promptly by a certified brake system specialist and have the brakes serviced before expensive damage or loss of brakes occurs.
Sometimes my brakes make a grinding or groaning noise that only happens at very low speed stops. Are my brakes going bad?
Only a complete brake system inspection by a competent brake specialist can give you the truth, however the particular noise you are describing is generally considered normal, particularly on vehicles with semi-metallic pads or most front wheel drive cars. The noise is simply a vibration that can be more felt than heard coming from the front disc pads because on slower stops you don’t have the brakes applied fully which allows them to vibrate against the rotor surface. Usually no service is required as the noise is unavoidable, however if the noise is constant and occurs at almost every stop, the brake system should get immediate service.
