Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
I have a 2001 Grand AM GT and it makes a terrible noise when slowing down and applying brakes. It has been to 4 dealers and has had 3 sets of brakes and a new set of tires (was told that was the problem). The machine still makes noise so now I have been told I will have to "live" with it as the type brakes cause this so turn my radio up! I refuse to believe this noise cannot be stopped. It makes a "rubbing" sound not a metal to metal. It is annoying and costing me money. Please - someone help! I am glad I found this site as the rotor/pad issue is driving me crazy. I have a 2003 Grand Am GT that I love. It has a little over 30,000 kms on it. The grinding noise has always bothered me but after taking in many times (while under warranty) since I purchased it in 2003, I had come to 'live' with it. I've had the rotors replaced/machined so many times. I went out yesterday to find the front pad is cracked. The noise is sooo loud. The amount of money spent on this issue alone is ridiculous. I would get rid of it but I love the car and it is finally paid off (last year). My luck, I would get another vehicle and end up with another sort of issue. All cars seem to have their issues/quirks..some more than others. Someone mentioned changing the tire to a thinner one. That is an idea. I will need knew tires before winter. If I know for sure that would solve the grinding noise, I would go to a thinner tire. Of course that doesn't solve the rotor issue. I had the front ones replaced 2 years ago and now will have to get them replaced again. I won't go back to the dealership to do it.
