I have 2,000 miles on my Pilot. Twice when I had to apply the brakes hard they made a grinding sound. Is this a problem or normal? Not too mechanically inclined.
Thanks

ed o'shea,

A squeal or a squeaking sound is caused by vibration. Either the pad vibrating in the calipers or wear indicators on the disks. It can even be caused by too much dust stuck between the pad and the disk. But a grinding sound is not good. It's Metal on Metal. You could have thrown a pad. I'd get it checked out soon.

Sounds to me like you antilock circuitry kicked in.
