Issue / Question:
If brakes squeak on wet days but not dry ones, is that normal, or a warning sign?

Answer:
Your car came with Semi Metallic brake pads that’s why if you don’t wash your car often the front wheels will start to turn black because of metal dust. These metallic pads cause etching to take place on the rotors and when exposed to vast amounts of humidity or rain they rust and will cause squeaks and squeals until the rust is removed by the brake pads. Believe it or not this is considered normal by the manufacture? If you are like myself don’t believe this should be standard equipment on any vehicle, have Ceramic brake pads installed during your next brake job. They cost a little more but worth the money.
