I have a MKC and only in the morning after a few stops do I get some brake noise. After that, it is fine. I have taken it to the dealer and they have said brakes are fine and it is due to rust. They have blown them out and sand down the rotors. After the brakes get hot, the noise is gone and no issues. Is this normal to have rust in the morning? Anyone else have this issue?

Yes rust on rotors is normal. Especially if they get wet or splashed with water with road salt and sit over night. There are TSBs (across all manufactures) that go so far as having the dealer resurface rotors prior to delivery on vehicles that are in stock for a long period of time. I generally drive the vehicle after a wash to heat up the rotors and force the water off.

Only drive on dry roads and park indoors when it rains. Rotors are exposed steel surface rust is normal. The brake pads essentially polishes it off your first couple of stops.

so this is completely normal
does outdoor temperature or humidity have anything to do with it?
Yes - If the rotors are cold and they get dew on them - Yes.

I have heard this brake noise a couple of times, but not every morning. Had a similar sound occasionally with my 2004 Acura TL too; I've never worried about it as Acura service (like Lincoln ) gave me the same answer as the others have described above.

I get the brake noise when backing down my driveway in the morning if I have driven through the rain or snow the previous day. After a few seconds the noise goes away. I've had this same thing happen on every car I have owned.

Henry, before you drive off, just take a look at the rotors....most likely you will notice a thin layer of rust sitting on the rotors, pads will remove it within the first revolutions of the wheels....I have seen this on all the cars I owned,especially prone to happen after a wash.

You can always spend several thousand dollars for ceramic rotors. ��

It's just embracing having an expensive suv and it makes noise as you drive down the street in the morning.

It should only be making a squealing noise the first time you use the brakes for a few seconds. Are you hearing some kind of noise when the brakes are not depressed?

I have to back down my driveway which is quite steep and about 100 feet long so I have the brakes depressed lightly during that time. I hear the break squeal for a few seconds. Once I start moving forward and use the brake I don't hear any more squeal.
