LOUD noise from rear brakes

I have a 04 SE and I went and had my brakes tested and rotors. They said at two seperate places that
they both looked perfect yet there is this very loud noise when the brakes are applied even lightly.
it sounds as if the brakes were almost totally gone. Any ideas?

also the car only has 10k miles on it , just purchased about a month ago and the dealer says that there
was at least 55% left when it was sold.

thanks

KlNG

rear drum brakes are notorious for awful noises.

Personally I wouldn't get used to it.....If it is the fact that they are drums you may want to look into a new set....not real sure though to tell you the truth.
