I was just pulling into a parking space approximately an hour from my home when the car starting making this really loud grinding noise and the brake pedal was very stiff. I thought it was my brakes grinding metal to metal. It was late at night and I couldn’t see anything, but didn’t want to drive it, so I Uber’d home and had it towed the next day to my mechanic.
I had absolutely no problems with the car before last night. No squealing, no vibrations, no lights coming on… nothing. I was not dragging anything caught underneath the car. I got on the ground and looked, twice.
My mechanic took everything apart and said everything looks fine. They drove it today 3 times and could not reproduce the problem. Is it a sensor or the ABS module malfunctioning and causing problems? I’m at a loss. I’ve had the car for just under 4 months and have 8 months left on my warranty.
