Check the rotors see if they're smooth inside and outside. If they're not smooth, or if they're so smooth that they're shiny like chrome (which brake pads can't grip as well), you can get them milled at some auto shops, but also check if they're still thicker than minimum allowed thickness (this figure will usually be marked on the rotor). If they're at or below minimum thickness, replace the rotors (replace both left and right side at the same time, so both wheels brake as identically as possible, so the car doesn't pull to one side as you brake). You may also need to replace the brake pads with higher-quality ones.
"Squealing" is usually from the belt or brakes. use belt conditioner to stop a squealing belt.(usually sold at walmart) you can probably figure out how to stop squealing brakes. but if not they need to be replaced. people need to start reading those owners manuals the car comes with.
it could be that your brakes are dirty or that you need new pads
Have the brakes checked.
If you hear the squealing when applying the brakes, the pads are worn out and need replacing ASAP. Failure to replace the pads immediately will result in worn out rotors which will also need replacing. If the squealing noise is not when braking it may be a worn drive belt.
Brake squealing is commonly caused by worn brake pads. The metal part of the pad makes contact with the rotor, causing the noise.
Yes, the brakes should be the same between these model years.
what is the best way to bleed brakes when installing new caliper on front left wheel
check your wheel bearings
The squealing sound in brakes is caused by dust and dirt in the brakes. Also, more commonly, it is caused by worn pads or shoes. On disk brakes there is a wear indicator. This will rub against the disk and squeel when brake pads are worn to where they need replacing.
If your car makes a squealing sound when you are turning it is because your brakes have worn out. When the brakes wear down below a certain point, a wire pops loose. That makes a squeaking sound.
The sound is most likely the brakes squealing. Check the pads to make sure that the metal part isn't cutting into the rotor.
The squealing sound you hear when your car brakes are wearing out is referred to as a "squealer." This indicator is a strip of metal that when the brake pad wears down makes contact with the rotor making a metal on metal noise.
Generally, squealing while NOT applying the brakes is the "chirper" or the metal tang rubbing the rotor. Typically, applying light pressure to the brake petal will make the squeal or chirping sound stop. This means your brake pad lining is thin and about to wear out.If you hear/feel a "scrubbing" sound while applying the brakes, generally the lining has worn away enough that some of the backing plate of the brake pad is rubbing on your rotor... This is BAD!Changing brake pads on disc brakes is one of the easiest repairs you can make to your automobile. Most automotive parts stores have 'lifetime warranted' pads, so you buy them once and every replacement afterwards is free. Of course, your labor is not included...However, brakes are a safety issue and you are not mechanically inclined or little or no experience, please consult a qualified mechanic.
Using brakes slows your speed.
a belt needs changed. go to see a mechanic
faulty master brake system
If you suspect something, get them checked. If you get vibration while applying the brakes, get them checked. If you get grinding noise from the brakes, get them checked.
...convert the rolling energy into heat.
possibly a bad brake...you should get all brakes done

Applying the brakes with your foot!
Probably by applying the brakes.
Vibration when applying brakes is most likely warped rotors. Another cause could be loose caliper bolts.
