Asked by Sep 27, 2015 at 09:03 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As stated above the noise seems to come from the front end. I have front
discs and rear drums. The car has just under 70,000 km and I have never had
any brake work done. When I bought it, it had about 55,000 km on it.

Sounds like you need front brake pads and possibly rotors. Have a look at the rear brakes as well. If they've stopped working due to faulty automatic adjusters the front pads will wear out prematurely. HTH. -Jim

Agree. Sounds like you need front pads. If you get on it right away that's probably all you need. Leave it much longer though and you'll need rotors too.

I appreciate the advice given to me. I'll have those brakes checked as soon as possible.
