Chrysler 2005 PT Cruiser, Touring Edition
82,000 miles
24.L

Had brake pads/routers replaced because brakes were grinding. No problems handling car

When I left repair shop car started to pull to the right when braking, felt I couldn't control car. Brakes squeeled even at low speeds as if I was trying to "lay a patch". Now there is burning smell from left tire wheel.

Car was in better shape before I took it in for repairs.

What happened?

You need a new pair of front calipers! And have the wheel cylinders in back checked too.
