Brake squealing!!! I have a 2006 Dodge Charger daytona R/T and I only have about 9K miles on it. But about a month ago I notice a squealing on my brakes. Everytime I coming out of my drive way, and after a stop at the light, etc.... seems to happen also, about a 40 mph. So, I took to the dealer because is still under warranty. And they said that is caused by a panic braking. I don't drive this car the much and I don't brake hard. But you would it think that a 40K + car would have a better brake system on it, because doesn't matter how you brake is a problem. I really don't feel safe braking. Here's what it says on the receipt :cause: Rotors out of specs. Road tested and inspected. Trued surface of all 4 rotors, cleaned.

Front rotor warping and front rotor premature deterioration. I took my 2006 Dodge Charger daytona in at 600 miles with premature rotor gouging. I was told by keene Dodge in jarrestsville md that this was normal. I believed and told them no way it was a normal problem with a vehicle. They took the car back to their service area. After a short visit to the service area I was told by the service writer that nothing was wrong with it. I was not happy, but what is one to do in a situation where one is blown off. I drove the car the way it was and kind of ignored the problem. Well it got worse as the miles went by until while braking the car had shaking at highway braking along with pulsating. I took the car to cook motorcars of aberdeen md and at first was told this was a normal situation. I again objected. I made an appointment. My car now had 7900 miles on it. I dropped the car off while I was at work and called around 1pm and was told that the rotors were indeed warped. The service writer told me that they tried to turn the rotors and when they did there was not enough metal left for safe braking. They replaced the rotors, with the same kind that was on the vehicle when I purchased it. I belong to the Dodge Charger forums and there are 100's of Charger owners having the same problems and are being told this is normal. Here is a link to my thread on the forums and you can read all the complaints that I have gotten. This needs to be addressed because there are Dodge Charger owners who are paying for this apparent defect on our cars. www.chargerforums.com/forums/showthread.php?T=23835 I want the public to know about this complaint as Chrysler needs to address this and address this now.

I was approaching a stop light and applied my brakes to stop. I felt my brakes slipping as if they were pressing fully to the floor not stopping my vehicle. In result I rear ended another vehicle and that chain reacted hitting another vehicle. I took my vehicle to a brake specialist and they diagnosed the problem being the brakes needed replaced and 2 rotors needed resurfaced. My vehicle is a 2006 model. I've made the dealer aware of what happened and they said the problem will be fixed upon their diagnosis as well.
