#1 of 24 Squealing noise on hot brakes for 06 TC
Apr 02, 2007 (10:07 am)
I have a 2006 TC. I have seen a post with a similar situation when the brakes get hot, they squeal when putting them on with 2 out of 5 brake pressure(5 being the full pressure). It goes away if I brake it fully.
Any follow-up and advices? I have been to the dealership couple of times with the problem, and they said it is normal and fine. Pretty upset and getting annoyed with the noise during the summer. Thanks in advance.

I have a 2006 TC - and your description matches mine. It didn't start until I had been driving it for a few months. Each time I go in for an oil change I ask them to check the brakes and the reply is the same - no problem. Took one of the mechanics for a ride to hear the noise. I sit in alot of stop and go traffic. I was told by the dealership there is a film that wears off of the brakes after a few months - and that's when the squeal starts. According to the dealership - they are making brakes with a type metal - sorry that I can't remember exact words. So basically I have to live with it. I love the car so I'm learning to ignore the noise - it could be my imagination but lately it's gotten better. I do note this on my oil changes in case something does happen so that I can show that I repeatadly asked them to check.

I just bought my 06 scion tC about 5 hours ago =D And I don't know if its supposed to do this or not, but when I slow down the brakes make this whooshing sound, not anything like a squeak or a grinding at all, just a whoosh, not very loud, i can't hear it unless the radio is completely off, but i was just wondering if that was normal, or if i should have it checked out.

I have a 2006 scion tc with 16000 miles on it. Lately I've been having brakes noise. Loud and squeaky, it's very annoying, I took it to the dealer and they said it probably needs a cleaning so I pad $40 to have my breakes cleaned. The next day, the brakes still makes noise....The dealer said it's because the brakes are made with some metal in it and eventually with wear the noisewill go away. I'm very upset with this problem. Does anyone else have this problem. ALso, after the dealers took a look at it, I noticed that when I accelerate there is a noise. Anyone else have this problem?

Has any jeep owner had to replace their front rotors at low mileage 10-25000 miles because of them being warped. I have an 06 rubicon with 25000 miles and i have to replace my rotors already. Warranty is only for 1year or 12000 miles on brakes. Called my dealer they won't back it up and chrysler will not either. Anybody else have this problem?
#9 of 24 Bad noise. Rotors?
Jan 16, 2009 (3:47 pm)
I'm not sure what it is, but I don't like it. I've decided it's not brakes, because I hear the noise when I take my 07 tC out of gear & coast, too. The noise is:
wom-wom-wom-wom + grindygrindygrind
I'm going in Monday, but if anyone reads this & has any ideas, please let me know.

Take it back to the dealer and ask if anyone else is having this problem, we have a 2006 Tc and the rear rotors are rubbing on the emergency brake backing plates, cause this loud sound, they seem to be bent out, lm not sure way, but that is the problem, so play dumb and see if they know about this, we took ours apart 5 times trying to figure out what the sound was, and it is something no normal, also check the internet for more information regarding this type of problem-
