    What does it mean when the brakes emit a high-pitched screech (though not
    too loud) when they're applied when the steering wheel is turned? They
    don't make this sound when the wheels are straight. When I back out of my
    driveway and cut the wheel to back into the street, they grind and screech a
    little. I've also noticed the sound when I apply the brakes while turning at
    an intersection. I recently had the rear brakes adjusted, and the front
    rotors were trued, by the dealership. Is there a common problem with
    Impreza brakes?

  2. I have a 97 OBW, and it was doing the same after getting the brake pads
    replaced, only on right turns, and only on the left of the car, and more
    so when I had a passenger... anyway, I left it until the next service,
    mentioned it, and they said it was just a pad that had a burr on the
    end, and so it was a high point, and rubbed on the disc.
