Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
Sometimes the rotors rust just where the brake pads set. It happens a little more when the Caliper pins start hanging up. The pads do not get an air gap clearance when the Caliper pins stick and the pads rust to the rotor. The noise will go away as the brakes are used and the rust wears off. It will happen again when the conditions are right. You should see like a blotch of rust on the rotor depending on how your rims are made.
Another possibility can be a Constant Velocity shaft boot/shaft making noise. This would best be checked on a hoist. It may take spinning the shafts while the car is in gear on the hoist.
The last choice would be a scuff sound caused by a bad hub bearing.
