Squealing 2018 Brakes

Enclave Avenir
I have a 2018 Enclave with about 17,000 miles on it. When backing the brakes squeal so loud you need to cover your ears. I've taken it to two dealers and they just say it's common with these cars and there's no fix. I find that hard to believe. Anyone else experienced this? I don't want to change pads myself and hurt my warranty but it's getting embarrassing when the entire parking lot turns to look at what's making so much noise.

did either of those dealers look at the TSB's, technical service bulletin? It took seconds to find it.
NHTSA ID Number: 10163218
Manufacturer Communication Number: 17NA217

This technical bulletin provides a procedure to apply grease to the shims on the front brake pads to correct a condition of Squeal Noise Originating from Front Brakes During Brake Apply.

Apparently they didn't, or chose to talk through the problem rather than fix it. I will certainly bring this to their attention. Thank you for the information!

I’m having the same issue with my ‘18 Enclave. Brakes squeak for the first 10 mins of driving in any weather condition. Took it to the dealership twice and they say there’s nothing they can do. Really aggravating when paying so much for a car to have everyone stare at you in parking lots.

It certainly does draw attention. The noise is back on our Enclave/Avenir as well. The fix lasted about a month before it came back. I would think Buick would want to fix this as it isn't the best sales gimmick.
