Question about 2004 Saturn ION

1 Answer

The brakes on my 2004 Saturn Ion are very squeaky. I had the brake pads replaced about a month ago in hopes to fix the problem, but it made no difference. They squeak any time I hit the brakes, even if it's very warm out. The brakes work great, the noise is just unbearable. Help?

You probably have "metalic" pads and they do that alot. I would replace with "ceramic" pads to get rid of the noise.

2004 Saturn VUE AWD V6 has a harsh grinding sound in front wheels


Have you checked your wheel bearings? When these go out you can get a harsh grinding noise. This sounds like that is what it might be. Does it happen when you are going fast/slow turning/going straight? I know you said it's inconsistent but the more info the better. However, if I had to bet, based on what you have already said, it's your wheel bearings. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Brakes make squeaky noises along with other noises


There are a numer of reasons brakes will squeak or squeal. Sometimes excessive dust acculation wll cause it, yet another cause is the TYPE of material the brake shoes are made of. The harder the brake shoe material , the more tendency to squeak / squeal. My suggestion is use high quality brakes such as OE brakes. Hope this helps.

Steering wheel moves back and forth when i brake 2004 ion


Sounds like your rotors are warped. First off, have the front wheels been off the car at any time recently? If so, someone may have reinstalled them and not torqued the lugs properly. Too much torque (or different torque on different lug nuts) can artifically warp the rotors. Also, hot rotors getting wet can warp (as if you slammed the brakes on or were braking severely on the way to the car wash, where you sprayed them down). Or, they could be just worn out. Chances are though that you'll need new rotors. Remember that when you change rotors, no matter how new the pads on your car may be, you need to put new brake pads on with them.
