    '14 Commander Max

    Last time i had it in for regular service they told me it was normal for them to squeak with the changes in humidity and such. I just hate crusing around in a machine i spent a bunch of money on and it sounds like a old junk heap when using the brakes. The pads and rotors are all in great shape, maybe a change in pads to a different material? I don't know, looking for some insight?

    Thanks

    I dont recall hearing other Mav owners complaining. @PlumberSteve76 did you have an issue with this?

    I worked in a shop growing up and when folks would complain of noisy brakes after a brake job we would remove the pads and scrape them on the concrete. We would then take a greenie wheel (roloc disc) to the rotors to break the glazing. This method worked really well, sometimes pads just do not seat right.

    I would do like @wixthedog said,remove the glaze from the rotors and try a different pad material.

    Both of my Mavericks have had the breaks squeak since new.. I asked my dealer about it and they said that it was a common issue. They also mentioned about taking the glaze off the pads and rotors which I've done with minimal success.. I've learned just to live with it I guess .

    my guess would be the noise is from whatever compound they're making their pad material out of.... ever notice how the lifetime warranty brake pads you buy for your car will be the noisiest things you've ever heard? that'd be my guess.
