Recently, my car has been making weird noises. When I put it in reverse, then softly apply the brake.. it makes this weird clunking noise. also sometimes my breaks will squeak every now and then. my car only has 1400 miles on it.. I dont see why its doing this, can anyone help me out?

Sounds like the brake pads just knocking back. Try this: back up, hit the brakes, you'll hear the "knock-back" as the pads slide backward; then pull forward, hit the brakes, you'll hear the "knock-back" as the pads now slide back to the front. There is a slight amount of play in the pads/holders that causes this.

If that's what you're hearing, nevermind, it's perfectly normal. Ditto with occassional squeal when backing up.
