So I went and had my car checked out because it was sounding like a motorcycle- SO LOUD. After the guy checked it out and I had set an appointment to get it fixed, I hopped in and drove away. About a block down the road I heard high pitched squeeling coming from my car, I hadn't heard before. So I turned right back around and went back super annoyed that he hadn't caught something that loud and obvious as well. I got out and said, "Hey, I really need you to take a ride with me. My car is squeeling and I think you need to hear it." Puzzled he said ok and hopped in. I put the car in drive and not kidding the tire must have only rotated twice he heard the squeel and said. Ma'am your emergency brake is on.... DOH! So I put the car in reverse to deliver him back to his doorstep 2 tire rotations back. In my defense, they put it on. Not me. :) The kicker is he says, "It's ok, sometimes it takes awhile to get used to your car and it's sounds." (He said this knowing I've had my car for 2 1/2 years.) OH I felt like a doof. I guess it's a good thing right? It means I don't leave my emergency brake on alot.

Matt and I had the same thing happen to us after we got work done. Only our mysterious noise was a cd rattling in the glove box. Ha ha.
