Asked by Jan 23, 2017 at 04:41 PM about the Buick Encore

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is 1 year old, and began about 5 months ago to have the grinding noise when I apply the brakes, particularly in the morning, I keep hearing a fix is coming, but some comments online are a couple of years old!

Maybe you need new brake pads but in wet weather my cars sometimes get enough rust on the rotors that the brakes make noise until the rust is cleaned off.

What year is this car? And maybe you should take it in to have it looked at so you know what exactly what the problem is, so you don't happen to brake down somewhere.
