With only around 1K on my Evora, my rear breaks already squeak. Anyone else having this issue?

Will the dealers fix it under warranty?

Mine have done it from the beginning - just break harder. Every once and a while do a good 70+ mph stomp on the breaks to quite them and clean them a bit. Works for me but it always sounds like a schoolbus if I gently apply breaks. :\

Just remount your brake pads with anti-brake squeal paste. Brake squeal is more prone in dryer climates.. When I changed my brakes there was none used.

Exactly, squeaky brakes are babied brakes!

I had squeaky breaks as well and thought it was just because they are brand new, but they never stopped. My dealer put some sort of spray/goo/whatever that Aston Martin gives them for their brakes and this handled that. No more squeals.

I know it's such an easy thing to do why can't the manufacturer the spend a few pennies to put some anti-squeal lube on.. Every brake shop I've ever been to does this.. it's standard practice.

I was told its from braking to gently and the pad creating a "glaze" on the rotor that squeaks. Even so often I mash the brakes and it helps a ton. Remember it's designed to brake when at high speeds. I'm sure if you're punching 140 and need to stop you'll hear no squeaks.
