I searched the forums, but couldn't find anything about this specific issue.
My 2021 Atlas R has been having a braking issue ever since I got it. I got it new in the middle of 2021, so have had it about 1-1/2 years, and have had this issue ever since.
When I start driving the vehicle after it has been sitting for a little while (anywhere between a couple hours to overnight), the first few times I use the brakes, it sounds and feels like the brakes. are grinding. There is a loud metallic grinding noise until I come to a full stop. This will last for several miles, and eventually go away. My concern is that the brakes are getting worn out way quicker than they should. I'm not heavy on the brakes, and only have 16k miles on the car, but like I said, this has been a problem since I got the car. The frustration is that when I bring it into the dealer, they "can't recreate the problem." I image they are jumping in the car as soon as I drop it off, after the brakes are no longer grinding.
Has anyone else had this problem and had it fixed? I don't know what to tell the mechanics when I drop it off because they tell me that the brakes look good. Any suggestions?
