Q: Bad brakes 2007 Hyundai Sonata

asked by on

I continued to drive car with bad brakes and roters, now tire feels locked.

My car has 148336 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there - I recommend a brake system inspection to determine what components in your brake system must be replaced. I would expect brake pads and brake rotors at a minimum, and possibly the brake calipers as well if they have seized ("tire feels locked"). I suggest this be performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
