    My 2006 brakes squeal very loudly when backing out of my driveway. It only does it when the truck sets for a while and mainly when it is idling faster in the a.m. I went to the dealer and he said that they all do it because they took the nickel out of the metal in the rotors. You pay $30,000 for a vehicle and the whole town hears me exiting my driveway. I only have 6,00 miles on it. Anyone else have this problem?

    after a rain or a humid night, my brakes always squeal until the surface rust gets scraped off by the brake pads, it goes away after a half mile of driving

    No squealing here. I'm actually surprised it is this common.

    Consumer Reports just found out that there are some brake pads circulating that are made of Kitty Litter. Maybe Toyota has been trying to cut some costs.
