Hello there,

I just had a complete front and rear brake replacement and have noticed my gas mileage has gone from 36 mpg to 26 mpg. The brakes squeak briefly when the car is cold. I cannot help but think this mileage reduction has something to do with the new brakes. Thanks for your help.

It is possible that one or more of the brakes is not releasing completely.I would return to the place that did the brake work and voice my concern and ask to have it double checked. You do have a legitimate concern and I would voice it before to much time passes.
