Can you tell if the noise is from the front or the back? If from the back, perhaps this technical service bulletin would apply...

Some customers may comment on a moan type noise coming from the rear of the vehicle when applying the brakes. This condition may be more prevalent during city stop-and-go or mountainous driving situations. In rare cases, this moan type noise can also occur during the first or second application of the brakes when the brakes are cold.
As the vehicle slows down from 48 km/h to 0 km/h (30 mph to 0 mph), the rear moan type noise may produce a low resonating "hum".
This condition may be due to pad vibration being transmitted to the caliper assembly resulting in a low frequency resonance.
Replace the existing rear disc brake pads with a new rear disc brake pad service kit.
The new rear disc brake pads will reduce the vibration being transmitted to the caliper assembly. Refer to the Disc Brakes sub-section of Brakes in the Service Manual for replacement procedures.
