Front brake caliper stuck twice. Driving was hard, steering was difficult with car going to one side. Lots of hesitation. My mechanic knew right away when driving my Volvo that it was probably a caliper and he was right. Problem happened twice in a row, but he determined it could have been bad caliper replacement.
