Q: My brakes are messed up

asked by on August 26, 2017

My brakes hiss when I press down on them, the car starts to rumble when it comes to a complete stop, and when the car is in motion I hear a repetitive squeak. This all happens on the right side of the car

My car has 174000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
