700 miles and still squeaking

So before I could pick up the 04 from the dealer, they had to make sure the brake recall was done.
When I did pick it up, the sales guy said that the mechanic said that the brakes were still squeaking but it should stop soon.
If it doesn't stop soon bring it back in, he said.

Well, over the weekend I put a little over 400 miles on it in the Ozarks, a total of just over 700 miles since the recall work.
Still squeaking, and now I can hear the front pads dragging on the rotors.
Gonna call the dealer tomorrow, but what do I need to be looking at? I shouldn't be hearing the pads rubbing the rotors, right?

Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed.

Ask if they put OEM pads on it.

rubbing the rotors will warp them. may already warped them. could be a lot of things .a good tear down and rebuild is a fix.

Squeaking when applied, unless I really hit them hard.
The rubbing dragging sound I can hear at low speed, coasting with no break applied.

That's what I hoped you meant lol.
Taking it back Thursday to see what they say.
Not really excited about the dealership route. I'm sure I'll get a big fat quote for work I can do myself.

It sure seems the dealer can't do the work . I bet they say the pads are worn out and can replace them for you , at a small uh hum premium. And dealers wonder why we stay away. LOL
