I know brake squealing indicates worn brakes and time to check/replace. But I notice on my 2009 Hyundai Accent, the squeal only happens going downhill (maybe uphill too, but one usually doesn’t brake much there), and on non-level surfaces at times. But for most day to day driving it’s level enough to not hear any squeals.
My question is what might this indicate with regards to the brakes or other components? Is it a special type of wear or uneven wear of the brakes? Since even wear would have the brakes squealing all the time I’d assume.
I’m going to have it inspected, but wanted to get some thoughts here beforehand.
