Hello CarTalk Community,
I have a 2015 Subaru Legacy that has been running great. Recently I have noticed some squeaking coming from the left side of my car. Some info about the squeaking:
- Only happens when going under 25 mph
- Goes away when brakes are applied
- Goes away when making a turn, ie the sound only appears when I’m driving in a straight line
I decided to take it to the dealership because I was at 90k miles and it was about time I do my 30k maintenance on it anyway. The dealership said the rear pads and rotors were extremely worn so they replaced those, but also said the front brakes and rotors should be changed by my next oil change.
My question is, is this sound likely coming from one of the front brakes, and will replacing the rotors / pads fix this sound? Or is there something else going on that I’m unaware of.
Thanks for your help!
