Have my Q4 about a month...close to 1,500 miles and no break squealing. Definitely doesn't sound normal to me. That's said, what I do have is an annoying rattle that sounds like it's coming from the steering column when I'm at around 1,500-2,500 rpm. I was prepared for it prior to taking delivery, as a completely different dealer warned me about this issue with some Q4's during a test drive. Curious if this is common and if any others have encountered the rattling noise?

I have the same problem ....

I have the same Problem with my brakes on a Ghibli Diesel (have got the Ghibli last week ). Also my dealer told me that it shall end after around 1000 km. He mentioned - that the built-in Brembo brakes have the problem because the brakepads are very hard ...
I have 300 km now, I will report whether what changes after more driven kilometres ...

you can try bedding the brakes to speed up the process if the sound is really bothering you, i know that's a way to break them in which is what seems to be needed here.

That sounds potentially bad. Have you brought it in to have it diagnosed?

My q4 is nearing 1200 miles and I don't hear that (knock on wood).

Over 1300 miles. No squealing. Honestly I don't think the dealers know what to say, so since it's brand new they're going to consider any minor thing that goes wrong a part of production and tell you it's "normal." Maybe it is, but having had two previous cars that squealed horribly (a CTSV and a GTR) I understand how aggravating the noise is.

The dealers really don't know what "normal" means yet on this car. The day I took delivery of mine was the first day my dealership had even seen one!

Question Brakes Squealing

I've had my new Ghibli for a month and noticed brake squeal at very low speed prior to stopping just after delivery. Took it to the dealer and they said it would go away after use and some hard braking. They also claimed to do some rotor cleaning/roughing.
The brakes are squealing even louder now after 800 miles and sounds like our local garbage truck which is not good. Plan to return to the dealer next week.
I love the performance, handling and looks of this car, and am quite hopeful we can resolve this issue on the front Brembo brakes

One of the Ghibli's I tested had a brake squeal, I chalked it up to needing a good hard stop to bed it in. Dealer person said "Eh, its Italian"…

This is common for very large performance brakes. They do need to be worn in and also depends on temperature and humidity. had a similar issue on a porsche…went away after some time.
