My brakes are squeaking but I’m still under warranty, are brakes covered?
Squeaking brakes is not necessarily a sign that your brakes need repair. The brake system is a circular metal disk attached to the wheel with a pad attached. When you step on the brake petal you are squeezing the brake pad into the disk, the pressure is very strong, enough to stop your vehicle from moving. If the pad is worn unevenly or has dirt lodged in it a squeak may occur. Of course brakes are not the first thing you want to risk being damaged, you’ll most likely want to be able to stop your car should you need to, so you may want to get it checked anyway.
Most warranties do not cover your brakes, which are one of the many things that need replacing periodically. A warranty is generally used only to replace those parts that should not need replacing. Of course even brakes can have warranties but they would be much shorter that other warranties and are only used in case you get a defective product.
While your disks may need replacing it is more likely that your pads are the only thing in need of replacement. This kind of work is not very expensive. My suggestion is to bring it to the dealership for a quote and bring it to a repair shop, compare the quotes and see which one is a better deal. For brake work it doesn’t really matter where you bring your car, as long as you trust the people doing the work. Getting the two quotes will help you determine if the local shop you want to go to is trustworthy, or trying to over charge you.
