    Hi,
    Just wondering if anyone experienced brakes squeak on your new tundra.

    Mine is a 2016 and only has 600 miles on it. brakes squeak every morning, regardless of the weather condition.

    Oh one or two.
    All trucks do it as well as most cars you stop once or twice and it's gone. It's surface rust that develops on the rotors over night usually one tap of the brakes and it's gone.

    yup, mine does too. Only when backing up out of my garage. I think it goes away once its warmed up. I asked about it at my first service where they were going to do a brake inspection. Ofcourse they said its normal.

    I never had this issue with other vehicles:
    2010 Highlander
    2004 Lexus

    My last 2015 tacoma didn't make that noise neither.

    Yeah it is moisture in the air forms a thin film of rust over night on the bare steel.

    Maybe you didn't notice it or you were applying the brakes a little more then you do now but with light pressure on the rotors just about every car on the road will squeak for the first second or so in the morning.

    Brakes squeal all the time, just not necessarily at the frequency within human hearing range. Ya, it's the rust and a combination of the materials. Ever heard carbon fiber brakes? They really squeal. The rust lowers the frequency to one we can hear, when it's gone the frequency is above what we can hear. But imagine what the world sounds like to dogs.....

    I have the same problem and it is definitely not rust forming from sitting overnight. I also own a 2007 Tundra and it's never done this right from day one. This is very annoying and I'm shocked that I'm even dealing with this on a Toyota product. This problem needs to be fixed.

    It's what JLee said. If it goes away after a few stops, then it's just surface rust being cleaned off. If it continues to do it after a few stops then it needs to go to the dealer.
    When I lived in Japan, there was so much humidity and moisture that it sounded like someone was dragging a file cabinet on the pavement when I pulled out of my driveway in the morning. Totally normal.

    If it bothers you, you could always just spray some Fluid Film or WD-40 on the rotors after you park it. ;)

    A guy who worked with us said, "my wife was complaining her brakes where making noise." She asked him to put grease on her rotors so he said to her, " Don't tempt me."
