    I just took the latest update last night and I noticed a really loud creak this morning after pressing the accelerator. It almost sounded like the the parking brake was still engaged. The noise only happened once and I haven't noticed anything wrong since. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Any parking brake can do that once in a while, especially if the discs were wet and conditions are right.

    Agreed. If there’s almost any any substantial moisture on the disc at all, it’ll rust a little and the brake will stick. You may notice right after that the brakes will grind a tiny bit when stopping until the rust wears off.
