Default Rear Brake Question

I have a new Honda Civic. I have had it for about 5 weeks. For the last
couple of days I have noticed the following. After the parking brake is
released after being on for a period of time there is sometimes a
slight drag when backing up. It is like I'm backing over something. It
goes away within seconds. My foot is not on the brakes at that time.

It this normal? Is it just the brakes adjusting themselves?

New as in brand new, or just new to you?

Sounds like the park brake mechanism needs some lubrication.
Not surprising in a used car, but a new one should not be doing that.

I've seen this on multiple Civic's with rear drum brakes. I have inspected
the rear brakes on them to find that there was no problem(s) on most of
them. After sitting (usually overnight) condensation was getting on the
drums causing the noise. As you use the brakes, the heat seats (dries) and
the noise goes away. Sometimes you can see the condensation on the front
rotors as well. Glazing on the shoes is another cause of this, once again
not much you can do. I do recommend that you have your brakes checked and
adjusted (if needed) for your safety but you may not have a problem that is
a serious one.



Good luck.
