Brakes squeal 95% of the time after putting it in reverse.

Asked by Oct 28, 2007 at 07:21 PM about the 2007 Toyota Corolla S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is new.  It only has 5,600 miles on it.  Whenever it sits for a couple hours and I go to use it again, the brakes squeal when I put it in reverse.  I was told that after a car sits a little bit, brake dust builds up and that is the result.  I know that brake dust can do that but never heard of it on a new car like mine.  Also, I have never had that with any other car that I have had and I have had 4 brand new cars. This cannot be normal if it didn't even happen when my cars got hold.  What's up?

Yes, it is the rear brakes. Thank you for your answer. I knew the second or third time I heard them squeal, it was not normal. I must have had sucker written on my forehead, because I am female. I know alot about cars and knew this wasn't normal. They WILL be adjusting them soon!!!!
