I bought a 2008 Dodge Charger in March of '08. The front brakes were squeaking, one week after buying the car. The front end of the car and steering wheel would also shake and vibrate. I returned to the dealer to inform them of the problem and they kept the car for a few days. I returned to pick the car up after they called me to tell me they had fixed it. I asked them what work they did and they told me that they "cleaned" the pads. Needless to say, the brakes were still squeaking as I was driving the car off the lot. The car also continued to shake when applying the brakes. I returned shortly after to have them try and fix it again. This time I was told that the brakes for 2008 Chargers "suck" and that I would need to buy aftermarket rotors and pads. I bought the parts and returned to the dealer to have them install them. One week later, they were squeaking again. This is a very common problem with 2008 Chargers as I've found by reading numerous forums on the internet.
