Question about 2006 Dodge Caliber
2007 dodge caliber? I bought a 2007 dodge caliber about 3 month ago and have about 3000 miles on it. The problem is that my breaks have started to squeek, about the last few feet of my stop, is there any way to get rid of that or is that normal? I took it to the service department at dodge and they told me it was normal, did they like to me Additional Details - i was going to have them check the breaks but he said it was normal so i didnt (plus they were going to charge me for a break inspection can they do that)
Your problem are the corners of the brake shoes. What to do is take the drums off and use some sand paper to take the corners off of the shoes. Its kind of like finger nails on a chalkboard. When is say the corners I mean the ends of the shoes. Use some brake clean to clean up the dust after. I work at a Dodge dealership as a tech in service and see this often. Neon were known for this issue. Goodluck

They're telling you the truth, if they inspected your brakes and didn't find anything wrong, it is normal. I've seen this before...it's annoying, but normal--nature of the beast, brakes=friction=noise. Make sure you get a copy of the service invoice from your dealership that denotes that you brought it in and they inspected the brakes and didn't find anything wrong...it may be beneficial for you to keep these records. The warranty on your brakes is 12 months/12,000 miles -- NOT 36/36 like the rest of your factory warranty.
