Mystery noise!

Please turn up the volume and have a listen. What is going on with the braking? On a hill, not going very fast, not braking too fast or hard, and not raining. This is a 2018 Forester we are test driving and the dealer mechanic and salesperson claims this is “normal.” I disagree, but don’t know what the cause is, do you?

That's not normal at all, sounds like worn out pads, ie metal pad backing grinding in to rotor? Could also be corrosion on the rotor itself?

Even if it were normal, it's not normal.

One thing I dislike about my car is how the whole thing is a big echo box. You just feel and hear everything.
