Why are my brakes squeaking? 

If you’ve experienced that unpleasant squeaking sound when you tap on your brakes, you know it can often cause a feeling of panic. Brake failure is never a good situation to be in. Here are some of our reasons for why your brakes might be squeaking:

Worn Out Brake Pads

If worn out pads are the reason for your squeaky brakes, bring your car in to Morgantown Mitsubishi and get them replaced immediately! Brake pads are specially designed to squeak when they need replacement. It’s very important that you take care of this right away and don’t put it off, as you don’t want to end up in an accident because you’re caught with brakes that won’t work.


Sometimes squeaky brakes aren’t a big deal and moisture is one of those times. If your car sits outside overnight, you might experience squeaky brakes because a thin layer of rust has formed over the rotors. If your brakes are squeaky in the mornings but then the sound subsides, then moisture is probably the case and you don’t need to worry.

Lack of Lubrication

When your brakes begin to squeal, they might just need some lubrication in places where it can easily wear off. Let our experts at Morgantown Mitsubishi handle this process for you, as it can often be hard to tell without removing your vehicle’s wheel and other components.

If you’re experience consistent brake squealing, do not delay and bring your vehicle into our service center. Our team of service technicians will get your car back on the road as soon as possible. Schedule an appointment by calling 304-296-4402 or stop by our service center in Morgantown, WV.
