All four of my brake pads were replaced, but my car is still making a loud squeaking noise when I brake. Why is this?

    Were the brake discs resurfaced when the brake pads were replaced. Brake squealing may be due to the quality of brake pads used. I would return to the repair shop that replaced the brake pads and ask them to drive the car and point out the brake noise.
    Tell them you are unhappy with the brake noise and see what they offer.

    I had the same problem with mine. The end result i had to have them change the rotors and brakes. Something seized up in the back end of my vehicle that caused the brakes to wear at an unreasonable rate. Take it in or use your extended warranty. It will be covered.
