outside, passenger area. i dont hear anything if its wet. speed and road conditions dont really matter.
it squeaks then stops for a second or two, then squeaks again. But it is also very inconsistant. Sometimes it will make noise sometimes it wont. When i took it to my mechanic we drove around for 20 minutes, switching drivers even and there was no noise, but when i drove my friend the noise came back. Weight does not matter.
car is at 61,000 miles and the front pads are still good says the mechanic (without opening it)
my rotor has a bunch of rust on it though...but once again i hear no noise when i am alone.
