Brake squeal?

Has anyone experienced a noise that sounds like the brakes squeal?

I tend to heard this from time to time and its random, I don't have to apply the brakes just coast along at low speeds (10kp/h) or turning at very low speeds.

Yes. It is a known problem. I have it when the brakes are warm and I am doing stop and go driving in the city. I'm not taking mine to the dealer. I will replace the pads with aftermarket, low dust pads in the near future (with new OEM brake wear sensors).

Some people take it to the dealer, they can't replicate the noise and waste their time. Others have been successful in getting the pads and sensors (and sometimes even the rotors) replaced. Here are some threads to read through:
