    Does it sound the same as when your anti-lock brakes would ,when you would drive in snow and try to stop quickly? Have you had it to a shop that could scan for ABS codes , if you have them post them here.

    I had new brake shoes put on last summer. I don't drive much and rarely out of town. But it still makes a noise like dragging on occasion. Not all the time, but especially when its wet or damp out.

    A speed sensor or wiring got damaged during the brake job MAYBE.
