I have had my car , bought new on 28th July 2018 . After a few days the car developed front brake squeal. This really annoyed me. Phoned the dealership I bought the car from, told them the problem and they told me this is legendary to the type R models due to their performance brakes! I told them that the car I part-exchanged for this model was also a performance car ( Astra J VXR ) complete with Brembo brakes. These brakes did not squeal!
My question is can I apply coppa grease (and does this work ! ) on the brake shims to alleviate this annoying and embarassing problem!! This noise only seems to happen at low speeds when coming to a halt. When I test drove a previous model ( prior to buying my car ) this problem never occurred. Maybe because this car had many more miles on the clock, so maybe this problem eventually goes?
Apart from this irritating anoyance , well pleased with the car, although could be more user friendly with the info entertainment screen.
Not really moaning about the car, just trying to learn from you that have experienced these habits.
This is my first post on this forum and hope to learn from you all ( this is the first time I have owned a Honda )
