Two months ago, my mechanic told me that my back brakes need to be replaced this fall. Last week I began feeling a dragging/rumbling while slowing down and not pressing on the brakes. Just coasting. I had my front brakes replaced 2 months ago. I think the back brakes need to be replaced now and not wait for fall. I plan to take the Jeep in within the next few weeks. My question is: In the meantime, is it dangerous to drive with the back brakes in this condition?
A few more details from the last mechanic visit: The back struts/shocks have seized up. I don't remember which he said. I need a new muffler. It is a Jeep Liberty 2002 and has approximately 150,000 miles on it. The back brakes have never been replaced. I'm going for 200,000, do you think that's a bad idea?
