just had the same thing happen to my 08 xb. Has 50,000 miles and was told by mechanic that not setting the parking brake when parked is causing the brakes to stay too heated against the rotors. The parking brake releases the front brakes from being engaged against the rotors. Told this is common in Toyota/Scion vehicles. Was I told a bunch of hogwash??

i got a recall letter on some part of the brake system, it said that the brakes would freeze easily or something and sometimes cause failure, so i took it in and they replaced SOMETHING....idk what, but i havent had the problem since, check on a recall
