Something strange happened last week. I got in my new 06 MO and put it in R- shift to back up. The car wouldn't budge an inch. I checked to see if any obstacles was holding it back. It seeemed everthing was clear and there were no obstacles in the way of it. So I decided to step on the gas a bit and suddenly there was a snapping sound somewhere at the back underneath. I got out again and double checked...nope nothing at all. After that there was no touble at all driving it. Everything seemed ok to me. Before I take it for the first service and report it, I was wandering if any of you had such experience or any insight to this. :confused:

I saw another member complain about this too. It sounds like the rear brake pads (or the emergency shoes inside the wheels) had locked the wheels from turning. Brake locks usually occur as the result of presence of oil or rust . I would not worry about it but probably have the dealer clean them on your next visit.

I wrote about the exact same problem on my 2005 SE. It only has happened once and everything seems fine.

Yes.. I did see a couple of similar problems after I posted. Certainly its a consolation to know that I am not alone in this. I do suspect it has to do with the foot brake not releasing fully. I will have the dealers check it out in my next visit and it would be interesting to see what they think about it. Thanks.

This can happen after a car has been washed and not moved right away... (Brakes)

Yeah sounds like a sticky parking brake.

I never need to gas it but if it sits a while the rotors get rusty and it does "pop" when I go forward. When I apply the brakes I can hear the pad scrapping the rust off. After a few yards of braking its fine.

Next time look at the rotors see if they are all rusted up.
