Customer Question
The brakes on my...

The brakes on my Scion Xb 2009 squeal when in reverse. I've read where Scion engineers recognized the problem and there is now a new pad and shim replacement to solve the problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

When backing up and I put the brakes on they squeal. The site RepairPal said that Scion engineers recognized the problem and modified the shape of the brake pads and shims. I called a Scion dealer and they were of no help. Just said to bring it in.
