I just bought the van used. It started immediately. Going to replace rear brakes and see if that fixes the issue.

Have had this problem repeatedly throughout last 100,000. Keep taking car in, they clean the brakes & usually the pads are fine. All this work was not done at a Honda Dealership. I'm going to take the car into the dealership, since this is a TSB issue, and I'm not sure anyone else can fix it.

I get groaning sound with the brakes are applied at slow speed. This has been there now for over 30,000 miles.but brakes just work fine and the service center had never asked me to replace any parts of the brake.

Noise just starting occurring last winter ,but noticed it mainly occurred during dry weather days after rain/snow. It comes and goes. I haven't heard it for months and just now was traveling through a stop and go traffic in the city and the drums starting groaning bad - but I could control it from going off by braking slowly - stopping suddenly the whole van felt like it vibrated. husband replaced rear drum pads and everything looks normal - but now looking to drop off at dealership since van is due fo r state inspection.
have not yet fixed it but it is terrible
