Emergency Brake Repair Estimate
I let my roommate drive my brand new 2008 Kia Spectra one time to the store and he forgot to release the emergency brake for the first two or three miles of the trip. By the time someone had told us that my car was smoking, we could smell the burnt brakes and thus my emergency brakes are shot. How he could not tell that the e-brake was engaged really boggles my mind because he claims it was my fault for not telling him that the e-brake was on!
Would it be fairly easy to fix myself if I bought the repair manual or should I take it to a shop? If I do take it in, about how much would something like this cost to fix?
