I recently began leasing a 2010 VW Jetta in November (in Chicago). About a month after I drove it home the brakes began to squeal very loudly within the first 10 minutes of driving, and although it mostly goes away after the first 10 minutes, it sometimes squeals after being warmed up for a while, too. I took it into the dealership and was told that there was nothing to be done about it, since VW doesn't use asbestos on their brakes and is therefore fine with their brand new vehicles squealing around town. I find this hard to believe. Perhaps this is because the car is under warranty and not worth fixing (since I won't be paying for it)? Has anyone else encountered this or have any suggestions?
