    Default Kia Spectra Front Brakes and Lock up

    There is something wrong with my Spectra's front brakes.
    Whenever I apply brakes hard enough, the right wheel jams/locks up and starts to skid whereas left one doesn't.
    Whenever I get the brakes serviced, brake pads of both sides show wear. I mean its not like left isn't stopping at all.
    Now, I don't know why is it doing that AND if right wheel is locking up prematurely or left one is braking with a delay. I mean which side is acting normal and which side is messing about.
    And it is an old issue, like 4 or 5 years old, I just never got around to get it checked/fixed. I asked few mechanics over the time and all they say is, "sir sarvace hoon aali hai", which I am pretty sure isn't the case.
    Any ideas what could be the reason...?
    Thanks!

    Every time someone refers to Honda Civic as 'reborn', a puppy dies! Oh and I hate increasing my post count.
