Default after 3 weeks of sitting

i make sure to keep my tender going and to keep my gas topped off when i know i'm going to leave my car sitting with never a problem. this time however, when i attempted to back out of my garage i got "stuck" and really had to give it the gas to break free of what i can only suspect was a frozen break situation. as i drove down the road i heard an audible grinding/rubbing sound and the car felt unstable, and pulled. after getting the car up to operating temp and slamming on the breaks a few times it seemed fine, and by the end of the day there was no issue at all. has anyone had this occur? i think i put the car away wet (was raining) the day that i put it down for 3 weeks. im not super concerned bc it felt fine once i knocked off the rust (which it actually may have been)

Happens after washing too when put-away wet, leave e-brake off in the garage and try to dry rotors before parking.

what is clear is that i certainly did not put the parking break on, but i suppose putting it in park is the same thing?

No, but there was oxidization on the rotors which caused the brake pads to stick to the rotors. Common. You probably live in a high humidity area or your garage is wet.

Don't be in a hurry. Sign-up to Phil's web site. And wait for a sale. He has one often.
