Brake squeal

so i have been getting squealing in brakes and little squealing when taking full turns and has been complaining to Acura dealer since around January of this year .. they simply said its a glaze formed on the brake pads cause i dont drive much .( i know stupid answr)
finally made them take a deeper look at it and here is the response

" The brake squeal he practically heard almost immediately. Once he inspected the brakes, he saw that the front brake shims and backing plates were a too close together and were causing the squeal when driving and when turning. He had to disassemble the front brakes to be able to adjust them and lubricate them properly."

Question - - is there something in there that could have had a damage cause of this ? more wear than normal or something like that ?

At 30k the brakes need to be taken apart and lubricated. My vehicle had the same issue with squealing brakes in a slow turn. Use silicon high temp brake grease on all metal to metal contact points. A small smear on the brake back plates as well. Finally a small squeeze into each pin boot too.

Consider this a normal mainentance item.

Quality is way for today's vehicles. Engines are the most reliable they have ever been. But for the rest of today's vehicles. No way.

Exactly how i feel about Acura .. Engine is the only thing that is way more quality than competitors .. and with v6 .. its getting hard to keep it under 40 mph on local roads rest of the car they employed bad cost saving tactics and no attention to detail at all '

ost likely the dealer replaced the retainer clips (the guy in the video calls it "shim") or just re-lubed and re-seated the old clips.


Most likely there was no damage to begin with.

Not better engine quality, just more conservative (thus proven) designs. We are talking about timing belt, lack of direct injection, and valve adjustment at 100,000. The RDX was ridiculously behind in tech.

This is a known issue on these vehicles due to a manufacturing defect. If you're still getting the squeal take it back. There's updated brake pads and rotors depending on the date and casting numbers on the front rotors. The updated front pads have a longer chamfer on the bottom side of the inner brake pad.
