To me its sounds like either your pads are worn or the disc surface is worn causing a metallic grinding noise,difficult to say without hearing it but id say that would be your first area of concern aswell as anything binding or loose play in front say if you have just recently purchased this vehicle from a dealer then its the dealer who is responsable to rectify that issue under standard by law 30day warranty or your right to reject the car if problem isnt rectifed or of not of satisfactory quality...I do hope this helps..if you require to ask anything further before you rate then please continue
