I am sure that is true, I dont get "good" brakes, may be I have to wait till 1K miles... "good" I mean, I can kinda sense and need more pressure to get what I want! Hm...
I'll see this for a couple of hundred miles or more, and check how loud it sounds... then go to the dealer.

Thanks for all info!!!

: There is a period of time during which the brakes need to "bed in", or wear the little grooves and ridges of the rotor into little matching ridges and grooves on the pads. Braking power is often somewhat reduced during this break-in period due to less pad contact with the rotor. I don't know about the squealing however. Mine do it all the time.

: Good luck,
