Brake noises

We just purchased a 2000 chrysler town and country and picked it up from the dealer last night. vehicle was gone through inspected and everything, however, after driving the vehicle for a while we noticed that when you come to a stop the brakes are fairly loud. It's almost like a faint grinding noise ( not metal on metal though) , the pedal feels fine no vibration or anything. now we also have a 2002 pt cruiser and a 97 plymouth voyager. these same noises have been heard in these brakes as well, however, they both seem to do it when the brakes are cold and it goes away after a few stops. Both have been inspected and have passed. This noise is very evident in the Chrysler though and it is there all the time. Any thoughts before we take it back to the dealer. We were thinking maybe they were new pads and such and they need to be broken in.

Its not uncommon for brakes to make noise in the morning until they get up to the operating temperature they were designed for.

Sometimes a little bit of rust forms overnight, then your grind it away on the first few brake applications. There's no harm there.
