Metal Grinding noise in rear break

I picked up a certified pre-owned, 2013 Jeep Patriot on 7/9 from an authorized dealership with 33k miles. Two days in i started hearing this weird grinding noise on my right back wheel. Checked it myself and found that it was coming from the disc break.

So i took my jeep to the authorized service center to check it out. The guy said its caused due to condensation on the disc and its very common in this particular model of jeep. When asked why only on this wheel he said its completely random and the only way to permanently fix it is when jeep sends them an upgraded break pad with a different material.

The sound is unbearable even though it stays only for 20-25 feet. Everyone on the road stares at me.

I think that the disc might have a slight bend or something or some dust particle inside the pads that's causing the noise. In which case, in the long run its gonna wear a lot and after warranty period is over the same guy is gonna tell me i ripped it and will charge me to fix it.

Please help..

Brake pads aren't covered by warranty anyway Brake pads aren't really that expensive....maybe you'd just want to change the rears and maybe with some better pads? Or at least have someone else ( a tire/brake shop?) take a look.

The drum shoe rears on my 2012 (29k miles) squeal sometimes if I brake real hard and I've thought about replacing them with something better....but I just haven't bothered to do it yet.

Thank you griff. I'll have it checked it out with someone else.

Actually I can understand the squeaking noise that brakes generally make in heavy cars/trucks but this sound is more like a loud churning noise. It could easily be the pads scratching on the rotors, or worse, i'm worried that the rotors might have a slight bend on it.

Hey there,

I have moved the thread to a more suitable section on the site.
The section you originally posted in is meant more for issues on the site itself.

If this happens every time you stop it could be a stuck caliper piston.
