Not all do this. If you look around in the brakes forum here you can find why and how to fix it...

Re: Squeaky brakes - 2010 FX35

My 07 never did this with OEM pads... then never did it when I switched to ceramic pads... does this now when cold with my HAWK HPS pads... not a squeak actually but definite brake noise... hard to explain... happens with performance brakes... ceramics don't give as good performance but are quieter and give off less brake dust... performance pads, in general, are noisy...

I couldn't find any resolution in this forum, I am new here.
Can you point me to there or if you "actually" know the solution and know why can you elaborate ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Squeaky brakes - 2010 FX35

Hey DataMan, I see that you have Garmin GVN53 installed on the 1st generation FX.

Was it hard to install ? I search and search and search for 2nd generation Garmin installation and couldn't find detail instruction with photos.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Squeaky brakes - 2010 FX35

Wow, if brakes squealing is the biggest issue, I'd say you guys have a pretty good vehicle. My brakes squeal because I swapped out to a better pad and, even then, it's only when I'm *LIGHT* on the brakes. Try using the brakes as they're made to be used... USE them and don't pussyfoot when applying the brakes. I'll bet they're squealing because of your braking style and you're only applying the brakes 1/8 or 1/4 way

douchebag extraordinaire

Are you serious ? it's my driving style causes the brake to make squeaky noise ? haha. You are kidding right ?

This reminds me iPhone 4 antenna problem, when Steve Jobs replied "don't use your left hand to hold the phone..." that is not the right way to hold the phone. WTH !

If what you are saying is true that affects me then certainly affects at least few other people here including my 2 other friends drive the same car with the same problems !.

Re: Squeaky brakes - 2010 FX35

FYI, I scheduled for the second appointment to inspect the brake squeaky noise at Woodbine Infitini here.

Let's see if they can fix it or make the noise go away like "all" other normal cars.

Will update this soon.

Re: Squeaky brakes - 2010 FX35

So after my second visit to Infiniti they said squeaky sound is normal for Infiniti.
Uh....... I don't understand but I guess I have to live with this noise for another 3 and half years until my lease ends.

I checked the consumer report org site and many reports about the Infiniti brake problems, well the squeaky noise might not be a real problem but it's annoying.

I am done with Infiniti.

Re: Squeaky brakes - 2010 FX35

It's clearly not an "epidemic" as you may think. I still say it is user error
