    Why Do My Brakes Squeak? And 4 Other Critical Brake Questions Answered







    The braking system is one of the most important but least glamorous parts of any vehicle ó so what do you do if your brakes squeak?



    Generally, you canít see the braking system. Most donít do anything particularly awe-inspiring. Simply, you press the brake pedal and the vehicle slows down or stops. For most drivers, the braking system exists in the background and is given little to no thought.



    As one of the most important parts of a car or truck, itís vital for drivers to understand what the braking system does, how it works, and how to understand when the braking system might be in need of attention.

    Or maybe because they are cheaply made with high metal content ? My Cobalt's brakes were simply awful till I got aftermarket ones. All the manufacturers cheap out nowadays at the expense of the consumer.

    This article is just click-bait. Thanks for trying.

    If you buy a performance car, it has aggressive brakes. The braking force is created by wearing a brake compound against steel. If you have brake performance, you will have dust as a by-product. Damp brake dust is like nails on the chalk board, sure. This is fact.

    If you want quiet, buy vanilla.
