Brakes grab at very slow speeds. I have narrowed this down a little thanks to your questions. They lock up when going into a parking space or coming out of a parking lot - very slow speeds. Total lock up, a little gas does not help, only locks up again. This goes on for about 3 times. If I put it in reverse it will clear it sometimes. Yes, the FRONT BRAKES feel hot to the touch after just 6 miles of driving and I can smell them. They do not lock up, thank goodness, in traffic at faster speeds. But this is dangerous while trying to pull out into traffic. No dash idot lights go on at all. Yes, I do push on the pedal while stopping and do not allow on the engine to stop it. Each time I depress the pedal, the car does it. Hope these hints are enough to help the mechanic figure out what to do! Thanks to you all!
