Squealing noise after I stop and begin to accelerate or when I drive slow. Dealer says Touaregs are rough on brakes. It has about 42,000 miles on it. He suggests I live with the squealing noise for a year or two until the brakes really go. Or they can replace them now - $700+. ugh. Just bought the car 60 days ago.
