93000.0 mi Had terrible noise in rear brake drivers side, so had to take it into dealer to have it checked. They didnt find anything but did not grease the calipers therefore charging us nothing. It happened again on a trip to the coast, but we were unable to take it to a dealer there. I did talk to a service manager and he thought it was probably a small rock or something, as the sound finally stopped. If it happens again at home, the car will go back to our local dealership. Toyota seems to have a problem with their cars' brakes!!
