Common problem - breaks squealing

Do any of you have problems with your breaks squealing?

I checked all the pads and they have plenty left on. I have even jet washed them down to get rid of any dust, but has not worked.

I called my local Renault dealer and they guy on the phone said itís a common problem on a few Renault types.

He says the build up of dust causes the squeal and the only option at the moment is to take them off clean and grease up certain bits and thatís it. He also said that after more dust build up it would come back.
I asked him if Renault does this for free, but as you can guess the customer has to pay for it.

I wanted to know (before I complain to Customer Service) if you have had the same issue???

I donít see why I should have to pay for something, which is bad build/design and after a period of time have to pay again.
