While driving at 60 mph and applying the brakes there was very loud noise coming from the brakes, and everytime the consumer applied the brakes the noise was still coming from the brakes. Consumer took the vehicle to the dealer, and the dealer rotated the tires and checked the brakes, and the problem is still there.
