Hi All. I am the proud owner of a new C230 Coupe. It runs like a dream and has been everything I could expect minus one thing. My brakes make a lot of noise. I have experienced no diminished braking capacity but this has become rather annoying. I took it to the service center and they told me this was because MB had switched from asbestos to metal brakes. Any one else experiencing this ? Pls let me know. :?

Thank you for the response. The brakes tend to make more of a grinding sound when I stop as well as when I release the brake to continue driving.
Pls let me know if still should be considered abnormal ( like the squeaking )

Sitting

My C230 sits most of the time. In one year I have put only 3900 miles on it. Often when I get in it for the first time in a whle, the breaks make a bit of a grinding noise. Thats just the rust on the rotor. After 2-3 stops it all fixed... Funny how my rotors will start to rust and the car has never been in the rain... :)
