2006 Scion xA Question: brake noise

I bought my scion around 35,000 I'm now@50,000miles I have had a squealing noise for about 5,000miles or so and Dealer keeps saying no problem w/brakes just pump off rust, burn off rust w/E brake etc. Still squealing weeks later I've been using emergency brake as a 2nd source just in case, so I don't wear down to the routers. Well as I left the dealership (3rd appointment)they were thinking I was crazy because the brakes did not squeal one time I got home later went to store and immediately backing up out of driveway they started to squeal. The dealer said I prob. burned off the brake dust/rust from the E brake.So can anyone tell me... What's wrong w/my car??? -
Answer 1
you need a new place of repair. either the warners for low material is the source or it is the pads. either way, for your piece of mind find a new shop and have it properly diaged and repaired with a warranty. Roy -
