Question about Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

I have a 2008 Malibu with 31,000 miles and a 2009 Malibu with 26,000 miles. From day 1 both cars have whistling brakes. When braking at low speeds they make a terrible whistling noise. This surely is not a wear signal because this happened when i drove them home from the dealer. Doug

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

Why when press brake car shut off


Maybe the idle speed is too low. When you step on the brake, the extra load from the brake lites lowers the idle speed too much.

Good Luck
