My wife’s civic hybrid has 200,000 miles on it.
Lately, we have noticed that when the brakes are applied firmly at a high speed (45 mph), we hear a grinding noise. It goes rrrROH…rrrROH…rrrROH. There is a direct correlation to rotation of the wheels. You only hear the sound when the car has nearly stopped. Sounds like it is in the front end. We don’t hear it when slowing down more gradually.
Any thoughts on what it could be?
