car   Brake Whining Noise problem of Dodge Ram 1500

I was driving my 05 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 traveling on the interstate doing 55 mph when I heard a whining noise that grew real loud. As I attempted to pull over to the medium the truck locked up and skidded to a stop just missing the guard rail. I got out and looked under my truck and saw the drive shaft had broken off from the rear end/differential and oil was pouring out the differential casing from the exposed hole where the drive shaft had been attached. If this had happened on the drive lanes I think there would have been a collision with other vehicles that may have been behind me. I had it towed to the repair shop that had repaired the rear end in 2010 at a cost of $906. 93. The truck would not roll forward on to the tow truck but would roll backward making it difficult to load on the tow truck. I went online and read many complaints about the same problem I am having. These complaints are not year specific and covered vehicles ranging from the late 90s and practically all 2000 model years. Some of the divers nearly had accidents. Apparently Dodge is well aware of this on going problem but refuses to make a recall. I think someone is eventually going to get hurt or killed. I for one am getting rid of it as soon as it is fixed. I don't feel safe driving it anymore. Some people have had repairs for this problem only to have it reoccur shortly after the repair. Thank you for your time and assistance. This issue happened on Tuesday, June 4, 2013.

Grinding noise when driving slow, tapping the gas would make it go away, called to have it services, and two days before I was scheduled the brake pads slipped off and I had to drive home metal on metal, then had to replace brakes and rotors under 27,000 miles. Rubbing noise coming from the front when you turn corners, and a whining noise coming from the back, and Chrysler mechanics stated they have received a lot of complaints but not to worry, because they cannot find anything serious going on. It was June 20, 2010 when this brake whining noise issue occurred.

car   Brake Whining Noise problem of Ford Freestyle

I bought my 2006 Ford Freestyle with 23,000 miles within 4 months I started experiencing a whining noise. The noise started getting louder and louder, I then started to feel the car wanting to accelerate while my foot was on the brake, this happened about 5 times. The car would stall and the wrench light would come on. I would turn it off and let it cool a little and it would start right up again. The problems continued especially in the heat. I live in miami florida and it was just about everyday that this would happen. Then finally it happened, the car just died on me. I want to point out that I took the car to the dealer with 30,000 and they told me there was nothing they could do because no lights came on. I let them service the car and they told me everything was ok. The dealer told me I needed a new transmission. I could not believe it, he also told me the throttle body went and intake manifold had went as well. I asked if there was anything Ford could do they said I would have to call. Ford was the worst at customer service that I ever experienced. They said no to everything because I was out of warranty. After spending almost $6,000 the dealer told me that Ford was now giving 100,000 mile warranty for remanufactured transmissions. To this day, I have replaced brakes, rotors, another throttle body, front engine mount and the car is now experiencing a whining noise again. I still have 15,000 warranty left on last tranny I put in. I'm thinking they may have to put a new tranny in again. Ford knew about this recall and how dangerous it was and never asked for a voluntary recall, I am also very disappointed with the NHTSA. There have been thousand of complaints and they also did nothing about. The failure date was Apr. 20, 2007.

car   Brake Whining Noise problem of Honda Accord

The vehicle is a 2009 Honda Accord. Loud whining noises coming from the rear wheels when the brakes were applied, caused us to have the local Honda dealer check the brakes. The rear brake pads were very badly worn through. The car is driven at highway speed approximately 50% of the time, meaning the brakes would not have excessive use. The dealer told us that the type of driving we do and how we drive caused the problem. We have since learned that Honda has had two class action law suits about this problem, here is the united states and canada. The settlement does not benefit us since the car was purchased new in July 2009. We have also learned that many drivers must repeatedly replace these brake pads. Since this is a serious safety issue, Honda should be held accountable now and in the future. This brake whining noise problem happened on 12/23/2013.

car   Brake Whining Noise problem of Honda Odyssey

The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5FNRL38616_. I'm the original owner of a Honda Odyssey 2006 ex-l, I have religiously maintained it and have used Honda filters, oils and lubricants, have done oil changes every 7,500 per Honda maintenance schedule and replaced tranny fluid every 15,000 miles, especially after knowing this has been an issue with previous Odyssey's and current ones. At 52,000 miles I had to replace a broken motor mount (known issue that Honda won't acknowledge) thankfully extended warranty covered it. At 90,700 (my extended warranty expired at 85,200 miles) my transmission started making a whining noise (I have had 2 independent mechanics and a Honda dealership verify the tranny is going south). In addition to the motor mount and transmission issues, this vehicle has had recalls to replace front brake pads, brake master "o" ring, power steering pump and paint peeling. For a $33k vehicle, it sure is a lemon. This brake whining noise issue occurred Friday, September 16, 2011.

car   Brake Whining Noise problem of Kia Motor Sorento

The vehicle was a 2011 Kia Motor Sorento. Reversed car from my driveway. Felt as if I had crashed into something (heard loud grinding sound). Put the car into drive and came to stop. Upon pressing the brakes, felt as if the abs had engaged and gripped all four wheels. Heard loud grinding sound and car jolted (as brakes were pressed). I had my five year old and three old sons with me; they screamed from the jolt. I slowly released the breaks and applied the breaks again, and same thing occurred only with less force. Turned off the car and called for towing. Also, a howling whining noise is heard inside the car. The dealership had it for two weeks, and under the guidance of the field engineer they replaced the transfer case. The howling/whining noise continues. The dealership really tried to resolve the issue. The manager herself test drove the car and also heard the whining/howling sound. I did contact the manufacturer, but frankly felt disappointed. I had asked if anyone has called in with similar complaints and was not given an answer. I feel unsafe and very anxious about driving the car. They dealership stated the breaks were fine, and that no error code was detected. I was not given a definitive answer as to what caused the breaks to behave this way or what is the howling noise that is occurring. This is the third major issue we had with this car. I have an awd vehicle and the current recall only covers the 2wd issue (that also has this howling sound). I have read numerous other complaints in which other 2011 awd Sorentos are having similar issues. Please investigate; someone could be seriously hurt or worse. This brake whining noise issue occurred Feb. 27, 2013.

car   Brake Whining Noise problem of Nissan Altima

The VIN of this vehicle is 1N4AL3AP6D_. I purchased my Nissan Altima 2013 s car on 17 October 2012 with 12 miles. Approximately two days later after buying this vehicle, I began hearing a constant whining noise coming from the engine compartment at a very low speed, a drumming slapping noise when I abruptly brake, a rather disturbing metal clunking sound that seems to generate from the fuel tank and finally intermittently clicking sound from the engine compartment at a high rate of speed. These sounds ar extremely nerve wrecking for a brand new car. I brought my car to three different Nissan dealerships for inspection at least seven times only to be told that these concerning sounds are normal conditions for this model. The car has also hesitated multiple times on start up. Filed a complaint that led to nowhere because Nissan north America, inc insists that these are "normal" conditions for this vehicle . This brake whining noise problem happened on Oct. 19, 2012.

car   Brake Whining Noise problem of Toyota Camry Hybrid

The vehicle involved is a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. There is a leak in the abs accumulator that causes my breaks to pulse and a alarm to sound, which is a loud whining noise. I have had my rotors and break pads replaces but that did not resolve the issue, my mechanic thinks is it the accumulator, which cost 1800 dollars just for the part. I have researched and seen hundreds of complaints about this part online. I can't afford to pay 2k for a repair at this time and I am afraid to drive my car but I have no choice due to my work and need to commute. It was January 14, 2013 when this brake whining noise issue happened.
