Q: Squeaking/creaking noise when stopping at slow speeds

asked by on

A couple weeks ago I started to notice when I stop at speeds under 40 my car would make a squeezing noise in the front of the vehicle, now I am also hearing more of a creaking noise to go along with it. I brought it to Midas because I thought my brakes were worn and he said they were perfectly fine and I have no issues but I am still hearing this noise

My car has 75709 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
