I own a 1997 Toyota Corolla, 130000 miles. I had brake trouble, and the master cylinder was replaced in February 2007. The brakes were never right, and I took it back several times. The last time, the mechanic said he had no idea why the brakes weren't working properly. I would either have NO brakes (and use the emergency brake to stop), or have to accelerate to get down a hill (like they were stuck). Yesterday, my brakes caught on fire. Melted everything (even the hub caps!). I had it towed to a different mechanic, and he said that he is very puzzled by all of this. He also said that he found some info saying that this has been a problem with my type of car. Any advice? Anyone ever hear of this happening?
