    Gla/cla 45 Brake Issues

    I have a GLA45. Very similar to a CLA45. I have a question. I have 15500 miles on my car. I'm hearing a squeal from the brakes but only when the temperature is near 32 degrees or less. Not sure why. Any one else have this experience?

    Mine has around 13k miles , I do hear the squeel sometimes. The dealership didn't think anything of it. It does it rarely . Maybe just get the brakes checked for peace of mind .

    Its normal.. They are performance brakes. Performance brakes squeal in the cold. Happens with every performance car I've owned.

    Combination of component fabrication tolerances and CTE ... luck of the draw ... some will get the squeaky ones, some will not ... life in the production world 😋

    A lot of people complain of this. A lot of people are told it's normal.

    I once replaced my brake pads with frozen bananas. The squeal went away but it had a materially adverse impact on stopping distances so I reinstalled the OE pads.
