Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass
In January 2009, I took it in for the front brake job as it was recommended at 100 thousand miles but except for slower stops, was not giving me any problems. When I drove out of the dealership, I was so pleased because my stops were now so sure and comfortable. However, this only lasted about 2 weeks and they would squeal, not only in the morning but in town at stop lights (interiormittenly mostly) so I took it back to the dealership. They said they squealed a little, and they found a little dirt on the new pads, and cleaned them up, but other than that, they couldn't find anything wrong.
Well, it's still intermittent, but much more often and much more loud.
Today I was told after inspection at a different dealership,, that some new (inferior) brake pads will do this and there's nothing they can do.
Can anyone offer any insight on this problem?
Cheap pads will cause more brake dust and they do squeal, the only option is having the brakes done again with a better quality pad. If you can put up with the squealing I would just use them untill they wear out, they will not last as long as the better pads.
