I just got my 2011 2 days ago:) First brand new car EVER. On my way home tonight, there was a loud creaking sound when braking and a regular creak when first accelerating. Anyone else come across this?

Congratulations on your new car. If your car has fewer than 100 miles or so, I'd suggest giving it a little more time to break-in before seeing the dealer.

Although not every car creaks/groans when new, sometimes various components need to settle-in a little. Be sure to follow the break-in guidelines in your owner's manual and the noises may fade over the next few hundred miles. My last new car had a terrible brake groan that took about 600 miles to get rid of (high-performance pads).

There's certainly nothing wrong with letting your dealer check the car, though. In the end, do what you're most comfortable with.

I'm glad to hear that your issue was resolved easily. It's nice to have a new car that's nice and quiet/solid.
