    Question 2011 Honda CR-V makes squeaking noise when releasing brake !!

    I bought a new 2011 Honda CR-V for lease about 2 weeks ago and have done only 330 miles. It makes a squeaky noise when I release the brake, most prominently seen when driving downhill but also many times at traffic lights. It is an annoying noise ! I thought it will go away on driving. But..NO

    I took it to the dealer and he said, all suspension and braking system are working well and infact they can note this similiar noise on an another new Honda CR-V, which has just 3 miles on it !!

    But, they put it on the receipt as"no such noise reproduced and suspension and braking systems are working well"

    I am just not convinced that nothing is wrong and this noise is normal !

    It is frustrating to drive with such a noise on braking on a brand new car !!

    Any one has any good suggestions on what to do?

    Does the noise go away if you tap the bakes slightly?

    It could just be the new pads not seated yet.

    If it goes away when you hit the brakes or ride them slightly it is probably not a big deal.

    I'd be willing to bet the noise is when you are stopped heading slightly downhill and are just letting up on the brake pedal slightly. Heavy vehicle, common noise to CRV's I think. Same noise after washing wheels and first moving vehicle?

    Is the sqeaking coming from inside? The brake pedal perhaps?

    Is the noise with your foot completely off the brake? As you brake? At the start of braking or at the end?

    If the car only has 300 miles it is possible that the noise may go away with alittle more driving.

    i think you're making a big deal out of nothing here. perhaps u
    should just remind yourself that your car, regardless of its age is a piece of mechanical machinery and will inherently have its squeaks and creaks. believe it or not this is also more common with new vehicles. my advice is to ignore it and enjoy your car and remember its a honda, not a lexus.

    I have the same thing with my new 2012 CRV. My dealer also said he has a new one on the lot with 3 miles that does the same thing. Ticked off that a $30,000 has a squeaky brake pedal.

    I bought a 2013 CRV LX with 2 miles on it and noticed the exact same problem with brakes upon release. Now it has 700 miles on it but it is still like that although the degree of squeaks are a little less. Just wanted to let you know you are not the only one.
