we're about 3,000 over our big 100,000 checkup, and we got this mechanic guy to get new brakes for our car today, my dad and I took the car for a little drive and we found that the breaks smoked and my dad said that he needed to add more pressure to the break pedal before the car stops how he wants it. Will things get to normal after a day or two of driving? These are all Volvo 800 series brakes that we put on the car, so there should be nothing wrong.

The smoke is a coating put on at the time that the rotor is produced to avoid corrosion while in shipping/storage. The smoke will go away and pedal pressure should be normal after the first good drive, do some hard stops. The maechanic should have road tested the car to get this out of the way for you. If it does not go away after the second or third drive take it back.
