Fortunately my brakes do not squeal. My Honda Civic is assembled in Turkey. It is equipped with Ate calipers and brake pads. I can read on the brake pads: Honda, Ate, Italy.
I just wonder if Honda is using different brands of brakes in different factories.
3k miles and the squealing brakes has raised it's head, took to dealer " seem fine to us" phone call to Honda UK and take back to dealer again, they can't fault them, told me to make a recording of the noise, anyone already done this in the UK that can send me their recording please?
Just over 1200 miles and have had the squeal of doom for a little while now. It is a bit hit and miss - happens randomly, and only occurs under light breaking. Made an enquiry with the dealer, who displayed chocolate teapot levels of usefulness
I put in a formal complaint to Honda about it and after a week got this back
"Upon receiving your email, I contacted ***Dealer*** to see if they had carried out the steps that are advised from Honda (UK) to improve the issue of sound with the brakes. The dealership confirmed that they had not taken these steps on your vehicle and we have requested that they contact you to make arrangements to have this carried out."
no contact from the dealer yet but to be honest from issues they caused to the car on delivery I'm not holding my breath.
I changed my front pads last week for EBC Ultimax 2 £35 delivered and no more squeal at low speed and the braking is far better. And interestingly the Honda pads I took off were manufactured in Italy and you can see that the pad material is flecked with metal. Job well done?
Pad have now been swapped out, done two days of driving and no sound at all from them but we'll see.
One thing I've noticed that would be good to confirm with others is that the new pads appear to be alot better in the sense of stopping power than the first ones, anyone else that's had pads swapped notice this?
Euro car parts got a 50% off offer until the end of April 2020 with free del on orders over £15 decided to order front and rear brembo pads for my 1.5 sport around £63 with discount, good buy I don't need the rear ones yet but decided to get while on offer
I have got a 69 plate Sport and had issues with the brakes squealing. After speaking to the dealer they offered to fit me the EBC brakes recommended on here free of charge.
They solved the issue and have been fine since they were fitted in December.
