Brake replacement at Belle Tire...Noise
I had my 06 commander's brake pad replaced at Belle Tire when I replaced all four tires because I was recommended to do that about 6 months ago.
Then, as weather got colder, my brake started making whistling noises whenever after parking outside for a while. Usually I do not hear noises when I leave from my garage in the morning. By the time you get out of parking a lot, the noise stops.
So I did some research on my own and found out that some new brake make noises when the air is moist because of the new durable material for the brake. They say there is nothing you can do and brake is nothing wrong with it.
However, now the noise is getting louder and embarrassing although it does not last so long. My original factory brake pad never made such noise.
Now I have a couple of different questions about this...I would appreciate if I could have some of your opinion or suggestions.
1. Is it really true that there is nothing you can do about this without replacing them again?
2. What are the odds if I ask Belle tire to replace them with the ones which would not make any noise for free because I was not informed the brake pads they would be installing might make noises because of the new material?
3. Are those brake made with the durable material supposed to be higher quality and last longer than the factory ones? Or they are just cheap ones which is the reason why it makes noises?
I have been trying do the best for my commander so when they recommended me to replace the brake pads, I just had them do it. I had no idea that brake pads made so much diffrence. I should have gone to the dealer first because I do not know anything about cars.
So I need someone who could help me out here although it is a tiny tiny issue.
