I went for my first service yesterday with my 04', no problems other than when I told them that my brakes squeak all the time, they said all of them do.

I refuse to believe this. He said they are working on a fix, but there is no way this could be true.

When I drive FORWARD, the breakes squeak when I get to lower speeds. It is really quite annoying.

If this is actually true, please advise, but if anyone else has any suggestions on how to fix them, please let me know!

Hey, do a search and you'll trip over the TSB and the related threads.

I looked at the link, thanks, however, the site only address the brakes when it is cold. My breaks are fine when cold, and only cause the problem when hot.

I will keep searching and if I find anything, I will post it.

Mine do it when cold and in reverse every day.

Not when hot though. They may have a "glaze" on them, or at least I think that is the term.

Supposedly they can be cleaned along with the pads.

I NOW HAVE THE SQUEALING BRAKE PROBLEM!!! WOO-HOO!!

Just started earlier this week, ~3750 miles on the car. Happens every day leaving work, backing out of my spot in the garage. :x

According to the official InfinitiFX.org calendar, my seat should start rocking soon, like around 5K miles?? :roll:

Is the seat rocking very minimum? You wouldn't notice it if you were moving. I just started feeling a small tilt fwd and aft a couple of days ago. I have 35000 miles on the truck and now I am feeling this.

Ditto, every time I back out of the driveway; usually 2 no more than 3 times. I'm at 1950 miles and plan on having the dealer check them at the 3750 service.

Mine used to squeal slightly when backing out of my garage in the morning, but that was it. Doesn't do it anymore. I have 15.6k miles.

Yup, that's what it feels like; sometimes a clicking sound accompanys it. They replaced my seat adjuster mechanism per the TSB and it's been solid and silent since.

I've only got an occasional light squeel when backing out of the garage in the morning...sounds like a trend.

My brakes sing

At half pedal depression at lower speeds, I get a loud groan like I'd expect from a dumptruck. I took it in and as luck would have it, couldn't recreate the sound for my SA. Of course, it started back up on the way home from the dealer.

I'm going to print out the tsb and take it in. It seems to come from the front though. And I can feel it through the pedal.

I also have a very slight seat rock. No significant leather wrinkling though. I love the car, but these things shouldn't happen to a $50k vehicle.

To fix the problem all rotors must be cut or replaced...purchase the PRO ACT CERAMIC PADS/ Akibono...and all your troubles will be gone.

I completely agree. Dealer says all brakes are squealing on the FX's, but that doesn't make it right! I am very disappointed in how they are handling the problem. Already had the pads replaced and now it's even louder. Pretty embarrassing in the neighborhood when a 45K auto sounds like this. The guys Neon across the street doesn't have this problem!
Now have the "seat rock" problem at 6K miles. Infiniti needs to make this right and in a hurry. :evil:

Go have 'em do the TSB for it. Mine was fixed several months ago, and it hasn't come back...though it seems that it has for others. I wonder if some dealerships aren't taking shortcuts on the fix :?:
