    Squeal from breaks

    I recently purchased a new used escape, sold as is and have only had it for a few weeks. It runs great but within the last week when I first start out or I'm in traffic n don't move very far I'll get this squeal from my breaks. I was told the vehicle had new breaks put on. When driving normal I have no problem with the breaks. I was just wondering what I should do and how concerned I should be? Thank you in advance.

    There may be dust on your Brake Discs or Brake Pads, remove the wheels and clean off the brakes/discs and rub the inside of the drum with light sandpaper and blow, of the dust with air.
