Re: Persistent but intermittent grinding brake problem
"My brakes have made a weird squeal/grindy type noise, usually when I first start driving, "
Well, if the shops you visited were competent, you may just be experiencing the normal noise assoicated with the slight surface rust on the rotors when you first use the brakes after the vehicle sat over night. You may hear this noise on about any vehicle when you are, say just starting out in the morning as you leave your driveway and brake for the first time. It should go away after you use your brakes a few times.
