My brakes squeak all the time in the morning when I first use them, just for the first time breaking like when I'm backing up, or the first stop at the end of the street, then they're fine after that. I had always just thought it was condensation or cold from parking outside overnight as I have no garage.

Well, this week I've been house-sitting for my parents while they're out of town, and parking in their garage. And every morning when I'm backing out my brakes squeak. It's rather embarrassing to be driving a brand new car and to have such squeaking, even if it is only the first time used in the mornings.

I've already put 2,200 miles on my car, and haven't mentioned it to my dealership yet. If I go in there complaining now are they just going to tell me I'm SOL beacause its a wear & tear issue?

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say there is alot of humidity in Washington with all the rain you get (how can you live there?) Even when it's not cold or raining the humidity can be enough to do this. When you stop you're constantly shaving off a tiny, microscopic layer of rotor surface, revealing bare metal. Bare metal+moisture=squeeky brakes. Once you stop a couple times, this layer of corrosion is cleaned off. It's an ongoing process here in Cleveland too. Certain wheel cleaners, road salt, and other things can do this too. I wouldn't worry :D

Just curious, were you anywhere near Skagit Valley on Monday?

BTW, there's a fix for your brakes. There's a TSB released on your exact problem and many of us have this problem if you look through this forum.
