    How many miles are on your car? Are you still on the stock brakes?

    With only 22K, I highly doubt that the brakes are worn out unless you run a lot of track days or autocross.

    Well, get your car up on a lift, or just jack up each corner individually, and take off your wheels and take a good look at your rotors and pads. If the rotors are badly grooved (some grooving is okay) or the pads are worn away, then you just need some new pads and rotors. If that's not the case, then I can't really say without actually driving your car and hearing the noise and feeling the brakes for myself. Also, check your brake fluid level. That's probably not the problem, but it's a good thing to check anyway.

    Check the pads, check the rotors... but usually if your pads are worn then you shouldn't hear the sensor when you are braking only when you are rolling. My best guess would be to take a look and the CV joints, you will be able to see if one is worn down. But I must admit, it's always hilarious for people to try and type out a "sound".

    Let us know if you find anything odd.
