I watch regularly your show on YouTube and thank you for sharing valuable information about all aspects of the car industry. I share your enthusiasm about Toyota products and I also like the fact that you are telling it like it is even when Toyota makes mistakes. Truth is always in style. I purchased a 2019 Toyota RAV4 FWD about a month ago and the vehicle has only 2,000 miles on it. However, the brake pedal makes a creaking noise almost every time when I slowly release my foot off the brake pedal to start a trip. This sound happens regardless if the gear is in "Reverse" or "Drive". At first, I thought the vehicle may not be warmed up enough given cold mornings here in Calgary, Canada. That is not the case, because I tested the problem after driving the vehicle for a while and the same sound occurred. What do you think is the cause of such brake noise on an almost brand new vehicle? Since the car is under warranty, I plan to take it to the dealership. What should I be careful when I discuss the problem with the dealership? I don't want them to try temporary solutions (like spraying the rotors or pads for a quick fix) if the problem is deeper and related to quality of pads, cables or other components.
