I recently purchased a 1999 Ford Ranger XL w/ 19,972 miles on it; it's an automatic. It was an old government vehicle, so I assume it actually sat for a while (not being run). I love it! I do have one question though, I have only ever driven Honda's so I'm not sure about this----is it normal for brakes to just kind of squeal or screech (only when going forward and stopping, not backing up). Before I bought it 2 days ago, it just passed inspection on Oct. 24th--surely it would not have passed if the brakes were bad. Any ideas?
Thanks for help!
