Customer: The car was running fine. I stopped briefly and then started up. It felt like the parking brake was on. I checked to make sure it was off, and continued driving. It got progressively worse. I stopped after 3 blocks, pulled over, and when I tried to move again, the brakes felt completely locked. The engine was running fine.
JA: When it comes to solving emergency brake issues, getting the right information makes all the difference. Luckily, the mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: No, I had it towed to a shop. The tow operator couldn't pull it up onto the flat-bed; he had to use a dolly for the rear wheels. I just want to know the kind of things to expect.
JA: OK! The Subaru Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else important you think the Subaru Mechanic should know about your Subaru?
