Car slow down itself

My car has 78000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If your vehicle is slowing down all by itself or having trouble accelerating, it is possible that the brake calipers on the front of the vehicle are locking up. This will cause the brakes to be applied at all times. I would recommend having your brakes inspected by a qualified professional to determine if the calipers are functioning properly. Consider YourMechanic as brake inspections can be completed at your home or office.
