Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
I just had my brakes changed on my 2001 Monte Carlo SS. The brakes now "whistle" when I apply the brakes. The work was done at my local Chevy dealer and I was told that brakes will make some noise; the "whistling" I hear when I brake is not a faint or subtle sound, I find their explanation hard to believe and totally unacceptable. I have an appointment to have the brakes looked at again.
Actually - I had the same problem and replaced my brakes 4 times in a year. YES 4 TIMES because of the whistling. I switched from metallic to ceramic pads and works like a charm! Ceramic will not allow the noise, plus I have found to have much better control over braking and short distances.
