    My sister had a Corolla that did the same thing. She thought that the emergency brake lever was just stuck or something. She ended up driving it for about a month or two like that. I checked the fluid and it was really low. I added fluid and me and her took a ride around the block. She nearly thru me thru windshield. The brakes were so much better afterwards, she wasn't used to not having to push the pedal to the floor to stop. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
