same noise

I have the same noise at low speeds while breaking and/or going over irregular road surface at low speeds. It didnt do it when purchased but slowly got louder/worse. Took it to dealer and they said they didnt hear anything and sure thing, when i picked it up it wasnt doing it, so i waited a couple more weeks until it got worse. Took it to another dealer and they couldnt hear, so we did a ride along and i pointed it out to the mechanic and he quickly said is was normal, it was the brake calipers moving on there track, he said he could pack it full of grease and a month later the noise would be back, he said its normal on smaller cars to hear that specific noise....after seeing this thread i say B S. Its going back to dealer asap.
