2000 Honda Civic, Automatic, 60,000mi - My car has been acting up. While driving home the other day, my husband noticed a smell coming into the car. It smelled like burnt rubber. He then saw steam coming out from under the hood. As he reached a stop light, he pushed on the brakes and found the pedal to be elevated higher than usual. In order to stop the car, we don't have to push down very far on the brake pedal. Also, the car is having trouble accelerating. We believe the problem to be that the brakes are some-what stuck and rubbing against the tires. How much should a repair like this cost?
