Squeal! Squeal! Squeal!

Argh! It always happens this way!!!! Whenever we seem to get ahead financially, one of the cars goes and does something that will need repairing$. Today, it was the Escort. I've noticed, for the past several months, that there has been a slight rubbing sound coming from the passenger side of the car. Yesterday, I noticed that it was becoming a little louder. Then, occasionally, the rubbing sounds became a squeal that would cut in and out. Today, it is now a steady squeal, that only stops when I apply the brake. Mike came out and listened to it and told me that it's probably the brake shoe on the front passenger side wheel. So, the car has to go down to the brake shop this weekend. I hope it's not that expensive. Last time, on my Camaro, the whole brake system had to be rebuilt at the cost of $600.00. (At that time, though, it was making grinding noises, not squealing, when I applied the brakes.)
