Q: My brakes are loud and shake when I stop

asked by on

The brakes on my 2008 Honda Accord have grown incredibly noisy. They squeak loudly when the brakes are applied. This is usually accompanied by a lot of vibration as well. It's very uncomfortable and I don't think that a car with only 50,000 miles on it should have these problems. What can I do to fix this and not have to deal with it again?
