She says that it brakes and stops fine. its just makeing a noise. i had ethe brakes off last week and checked rorors,breaks, turned the rotors they moved freely. pads need to be replaced but theere not grinding or cutting into the rotors. i also drove it and there was no noise when i drove it. but she drove it the other day and said the noise is back. is there an issue with the braks on these cars, and is this a common occurance.

Could be the parking brake or the pads are so worn they are making noise. Have her drive you around as you sit in the rear seat with the window down.
