comment What is causing this terrible grinding/groaning noise when I come to a slow stop sometimes? (but not always!)
An update a year or two later: started getting the same noise, even with the Red Stuff pads. This seems to be a characteristic of the original 2012 Civic calipers. It happens when the pads are worn out enough to be replaced, but not enough to really need to be replaced. Oh well, the Red Stuff pads last significantly longer than the OEM ones.

@Zaid Yes! I've now posted an answer for anyone else that might come across this question.

@vlsd No, he simply mentioned that the two problems could possibly be related.

Yes, the car is equipped with ABS. I've felt it engage when I've had to prevent an accident a couple of times. I feel like it's not related to this problem because this problem occurs during low speed stops.
