Question about 2007 Kia Spectra LX Sedan

1 Answer

2007 Kia Spectra EX with 39000 miles. Sometimes when I apply brakes I hear a scrubbing sound. My car was in for routine service just three weeks ago and they said everyting was fine, but it wasn't making the noise at that time. Is this my brakes or what?

Mine is in the right rear brake. i first found it in 2007, when my car was in moisture, like after rain. you could hear it and feel it, you knew exactly where the problem was.i had my oil changed by NTB and had a free 22 point check, they found the problem, with little effort. the kia dealership never found a problem. i became disappointed after leaving my car with them. i was so sure they'd find the problem and fix it under warranty. my spectra had two other problems too. trunk would unlock without any effort from me. the park lights would come on with out my help. it took two years to have my lights fixed, but my trunk is still an issue after 4 years.

i was told call a service writer when my trunk opens. and i said then what, are you going to fix it then. i just can't leave my car with you for days.

You are most likely hearing metal on metal on the brake pads. The brakes are not attached to the gear shift in any way. Unless those Koreans have done some really wierd design.
