Grinding brakes and "shift shock"

My brakes make a grinding noise reminding me of when I was young and didn’t replace the brake pads untill they ground groves into the rotor…lol…

The brakes make the same sound now but they,ve only got 26K miles on them and the dealer can find no explanation.I’ve made 5 trips to the dealer starting at 12K miles. The sound does not occur all the time and not only when cold or hot…and sometimes not at all. HELP!!

“shift shock” When shifting from 1st. to 2nd. I feel a bang or clunck as if the engine revs a bit before engaging. As above the dealer has no explanation and their are no codes on the TCU. This gets a bit worse as time goes on and the other day it banged twice on the same shift. The dealer has not been able to duplicate this one…they have heard the brakes though. Please help me.



Year, make, model? Automatic or manual?
