Maybe ABS is kicking in. I've heard if the size of your tires are not close to the same hight, it can trigger the ABS.
Not sure. Just a thought.

Probably a problem with the ABS, but can't tell for sure. Maybe try and get it on a lift with the wheels off so you can see if the brakes are releasing?

Question doesnt fit since you drive a standard, however if your car is and automatic and you shift into 3rd your engine will break for you (depending on RPMS) when you let off the gas. Like I said stupid question.

Does the car roll freely with your foot of the brake and the car in neutral ?

Great Question. If it does roll freely in neutral than it's probably not the brakes and your probably looking at a problem somewhere in the drivetrain

Could be a brake hose coming from the caliper not releasing the pressure when you release the brakes,,had this happen at work the hose was collasping on the inside which kept the brake squeezed on the rotors,,then after a min or 2 it would release,,and only happened after it got hot,,if you had a temp gun you could shoot the temps of each wheel and see if there is signifcant difference..Also a caliper slide can get froze up too..

It's definitely the slide pin that is not greased so its most likely sticking and causing your caliper to not release or maybe your rotors could be warped as well. Check your rotors and grease your caliper slide pins.
