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?
Could anyone advise on what tyre sizes fit the 1.5 sport please? I've got 235 45 17 on but I'm reading lots on here about people getting 225 45 17 and when I do a reg search on tyre sites I get either 215 45 17 or 235 45 17 in results. Bit confused.
After selling the part worn Conti TS860s that served me so well over the last 2 years on my old 9th Gen I was in the market for something for my new car given the size difference. (235/45/17 94)

Need some advice. I'm looking to replace my stock Civic 10th Sport alloys with some after market. Right now I am looking at this:
Does anyone know if they would fit my Civic? Also, I would need to purchase new...
I’ve just rejoined the civic world with my 2019 diesel SR and so far loving it, the probably stupid question I have is that my space saver wheel from my previous car (Astra GTC) seems to have a very similar size and wheel size to what I’ve seen quoted for my new car. The tyre is a 125/70/17 with...
