I drive a 2008 Avenger with approximately 63,000 miles on it. I bought it a year ago with 43,000 and haven't had any major issues so far.
I driver 35 miles to work (each way) everyday, and up until yesterday everything was fine. Today when I made my first stop, the car felt weird. So I lowered the music and started paying attention.
The next time I hit the brakes, my brake light on the dashboard came on. I checked my emergency brake, and it was completely released. When I started moving again, the light went off and did not come up again.
Even still, everytime I stepped on the brakes, I could hear and feel a "skidding" noise / feel. Not the "squeaking" skidding noise, but almost like the car was going to slide (it didn't)... like the noise of skidding in the rain. It would mainly do this when I was braking under 20 miles per hour or suddenly.
I have not had a chance to take it in anywhere, and I am very nervous about driving 35 miles home on a highway like that. I'm also out of the warranty.
Has anyone had this issue before?
Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
