So I don't have a garage any more, since we moved into our new home in May, which burned down 3 weeks later. The V has to be sitting outside this winter in the driveway of our rental home (no garage!).
I washed/cleaned the wheels a few days ago, hadn't driven it and got into the car this morning. We've had a few days of alternately freezing and thawing temps.
So the e-brake had totally seized and it took a good few tries to free everything up. Looks like the e-brake functions on the front wheels, 'cuz after trying to "rock" the car free (oh yeah!), the front wheels dug a rut in the gravel when they didn't roll during the first few tries to get moving!
So they finally let go and I was able to get on my way... on the road, there was HUGE pulsing when braking. I tried a few hard braking attempts down from 60 mph after feeling this and I'm happy to say that we're gettin' back to normal.
Still not quite 100%, but I think I need to "re-surface the rotors" with a few more hard braking episodes to get rid of whatever buildup formed on the rotors after these few days of inactivity, combined with my cleaning the wheels and leaving them for a few days in alternately freezing and thawing episodes.
